    If he's only drag racing it and not running it as a daily driver, a welded differential or solid spool is fine.

    thanks for the link, i'll check it out.....i'm still looking for what companies make good parts, and what parts will work best together....

    as for the turbo, yes as part of my ls/vtec build up i will also be doing everything needed to handle boost

    thanks, i'm not sure aftermarket or oem, whatever works well together, doesnt have to be one or the other.

    what size pistons are recommended for running boost?i know the compression needs lowered...

    if u run stock pistons for a lower comp. just remember you should make the valve reliefs bigger, b/c theres a chance at contact. check out honda tuning for more info. its their 13 seconds on 10k project.

    just modify ur pistons, its not hard 2 do and then u know they wont touch. the little amount of work required is worth the piece of mind. take the advice from me. i have an ls/vtec, im building another, and i have helped build other ones. and to be honest its alot easier just to use vtec pistons, but it depends on how much boost u wanna run.
