    going LSVTEC on that block without rebuilding it first is just asking for it to blow up
    putting in a B16 on an LS tranny is going to suck balls... those gears are WAYYYYY to long for that little high strung engine
    going LSVTEC on an LS tranny will suck slightly less... but it will still suck

    sell the B16 and get another LS engine or a B20
    or sell the B16 and save up some more money and get a full GSR swap
    or rebuild your LS bottom end then do the LSVTEC and get a proper tranny
