ok folks, for the past month or so i've been throwing around the idea of a hybrid motor and i have come to the decision that the LS/Vtec is one mean SOB if built right. I wanted to go CRVtec but too many people are doing it now and it seems like i would be doing it cuz it's the latest trend. Also, i decided against the CRVtec cuz it cost a bit more to build than a LSVtec. So now to my question. I have a 95 Civic coupe with a B16A2 that i swapped in about 2 months ago. I am planning to build the LSVtec with some of my existing hardware. I am planning on using the head off of my B16, it's already equipped with a set of ITR cams so it think it'll be good enough for now. I've been looking for a B18B block for about a week now and I've gotten a few good leads so far. I am going to use the oil and water pump from the B16 and I already have a tranny so i'm in pretty good condition there. I want to use the B16 pistons with the LS rods(shotpeened ofcourse) in the build up. I am planning on using ARP everything just to give myself that ease of mind. When I pick up the block i am going to have it resleeved and cleaned up. I might even invest in a block guard, not sure about this option yet. And ofcourse i will need to run the oil lines. All I would need at this point would be a LS block and LS rods, right? Which crank is best to use? i am guessing i will be using a LS oil pan, right? Is there any steps i overlooked? Am I missing any parts for the build up? Do you think i have the right mixture of parts? On a side note, what kind of compression numbers do you think i will be running with the LS rods and the B16A2 pistons? Should I use standard size pistons or should I have the machine shop overbore the sleeves "XX"mm to be able to use oversived pistons? if so, how does that affect the displacement of the motor? When I am having the block resleeved, is there a specific amount they should take off or how does that work cuz that is an area I know little about. I'm probably going to start this project as soon as I find a good candidate block. Thank you all in advance for reading this post and especially to those who respond.
