    yeah i would also keep the b16 and go turbo

    but if you want to keep it all-motor then yes that motor has potential.

    lsvtec is fine if built right....

    do things right the first time and you will be fine as far as reliability is concerned.

    yo just put the ctr pistons in the b16 block and the ctr cams, valve springs and retainers in the head. it will be cheeper and just buy a sleeved b16 block. they sell them at full throttle. :D

    ctr pistons
    ctr cams

    look at all the LS/VTEC haters....and i bet they only know what they read online.

    anyways....LS/VTEC's are GREAT MOTORS....
    just make sure you build it RIGHT, just like any other motor build up.
    you can get a B20 block and that will be a heck of a motor.....

    later

    I am a fan of the lsvtec, the problem is that you need to build it right just like any honda rebuild. It needs to have certain things do for longevity reasons. Do it right the first time.

    if you want a bigger block meaning more Displacement then you want to go CRVTEC B20B or Z block, and any B series VTEC head... that's bigger.... Lsvtec is a 1.8 (LS=90-93[B18A1] 94-00 [B18B1]) with any B series VTEC head... get it straight yO'
