    I was just wondering how difficult is it to have a b18b (teg LS) and then vtec the motor. Now i dont know to much of this, but i had a friend mention something like that saying that this is also a better choice than getting a gsr motor swap, in a 1995CiViC. What are the problems that you may run into doing this swap and is adding vtec to the b18b possible or even worth it, or should a gsr motor do better, in terms saying that this motor will be boosted later on.

    :blink: :huh:

    any thoughts are welcome, correct me if im wrong in anything I said also.

    From what I gather it would be better to leave the b18b like it is to boost.Or you could slap a vtec head on there and have the ls/vtec.There are people here who are running that right now and could get you the details.

    if you have an ls teg, do the ls vtec.
    if you have a civic, do the gsr swap.

    if you dont have either and are wondering what to do- go Ls/turbo :)

    i would rather go ls turbo or gsr swap.
    Lsvtec will bring you sorrow man. They usually leak even though you have it correctly built.

    If they are correctly built by a competent person then they are fine.

    This is complete BS. My engine does not leak period.

    That being said the only reason I have an LSVTEC is I drive and Integra LS and the LS bottom end cost me nothing. You would be better off running a B18C.
