    How much do you have to spend? You need a goal. Try to search.
    This topic has been covered many, many, many times on several forums.
    It works but you need an ls/vtec kit.

    I spent almost 8500 on my build but I sleeved it completely changed the rotating assy and stroked the motor and then built the crap out of the head. Thats just parts and machine work. It just depends on how much power you wanna make. I should when all is said and done hit the hi 600's low 700's.

    It should hold some nice boost. what kinda power are you looking for. Stock sleeves have been pushed to 536 by full race.com. They are really good at tuning anf have some of the badest b series to ever inhabit and engine bay.

    I recomend you use a set of 650cc's. try for 450 hp. Streetable and definetly reliable. I recomend RC's.

    Very nice setup though. Should be very nice to drive and very fast. Beware once you start boosting you cannot stop turning it up. Have a backup block on standby and a tranny

    If you need a set of injectors I have some RC 750cc's for sale. I'm trying to get $160 for them shipped. I have a paypal account if your interested let me know.

    I think you should shoot for around 300-350whp. For the street and a daily driver thats all you need, trust me.
    Oh and these mounts are good as well. Also cheaper. http://www.innovativemounts.com/
