    I would use a gsr or si head on it. But I would definetly get a ls crank. Dont use gsr internals you wont get the advantage of the ls stroke. I would use a ls crank and invest in some decent pistons and rods. Make sure you order the rods for the ls also.

    "Boostin4fun" is 100% correct

    use the LS crank w/ after market rods and pistons

    Maybe 11:1, 12:1 for even more torque and HP:driver: "D"

    gsr heads and ls heads are as different as night and day. the only things that will swap from them is the springs and retainers. the cams are reaaaally different. I actually had more fun with my complete ls motor than my gsr motor now. I would say get some good aftermarket cams for your ls head and run that. it would be a fun car.

    I guess it kind of depends on what you are going to do with the car. If its going to be all motor then the vtec head would definetly help you pick up more horsepower. But if you are planning to add boost pretty soon, just save your money for your turbo setup and keep the ls head. Vtec cams will not work in a ls head they are very different!!

    then go with the gsr or b16 head. OR....b16 head and swap in some gsr cams. either way,any stock vtec head is better than a stock ls head if your talking hp.
