    i think you'll need to use the LS timing belt... that's what I was told to use, and that's what im using... Im doing LSVTEC also... I got the B16A1 head, gsr water pump and LS TB... got the B16 IM, and a Hedman Chikara Header... that's about it still looking for a crank rods adn pistons... and rings... damn though

    can i quote an internet rumor? (this way by saying it is a rumor, you fuckers cant flame me....)

    but from my "d" series turbo board, i was under the impression that a block guard on a street car would do more damage than good. few peeps were saying it blocks the coolant flow etc.

    anyone dispel this myth or?

    Timing belt and water pump need to be from the same engine. If you use GSR water pump you use GSR timing belt and vice versa.

    block guards are not even worth the 100$ unless your running like a NOS d series or some other ridiculously weak explosive motor

    do a search under my name in the FI forum for block gaurds. I've covered my opinions on this several times.
