    vtec is for gas economy. if you want to go fast, just get cams that are just as agressive as vtec lobes...

    companies like crower can custom make you cams to any specs

    What I ment is if your only worried about running at the track and making quick quarter passes, then you can get away with just large, agressive cams in a non-vtec head. Blanco is correct tho, you will lose low end power.

    If your a street car, and you can find a vtec head, then it'll work a little better for your application. I'm not sure what goals your going after, or what numbers your wanting. Take a look at our reference section and you can look at what motors have what features, along with a lot of other great useful information.

    then get back to us

    You can make this combo work, but it's kind of retarded honestly. A straight B16 or a straight LS would be much preferable to an LS head on the 1.6 block.

    Not exactly true. The B20/B21 from the old Preludes isn't compatible with any of the other B-series engines.

    Good call. You'll be much happier with the B16 head. The LS head doesn't flow very well in stock form, but at least it's usually paired with a 1.8 block, so it makes decent torque. Paired with a smaller B16 block though, you'd be getting the worst part of both motors.

    "VTEC is the #1 choice for Honda enthusiasts!" This is what I heard some old fart bag say at HIN six years ago. Everyone laughed it off like it was nothing... now look how far it has gone today... :)

    I wonder how long the LSVTEC concept has been around. I'm sure no one ever imagined that either.

    My friend, I really do wish you the best on everything, as I have been there. My car was stolen once in 2000 and broken into three times in the past two years. Best of luck.
