    I have a 96 LS 5 speed tranny, in a 93 civic SI.. I was wonder if i could turn this engine into a vtec engine.almost like a GSR. If anyone knows how to do this let me know. Or if u know a way that the engine can be tricked into thinking it has the vtec

    Don't listen to this guy. It's not as simple as putting a B16/B18C head on an LS, there is much more to it if you don't want to toast the engine. Read the article that kylemarhx linked and come back with specific questions if you have any.

    There are this things called "dates", we use them to keep track of the passing of time, according to this threads date, almost ten fucking years have passed since it was posted,pretty sure they have either figured it out, or moved on.

    Wow, might be the oldest bump I've ever seen. Hell, this thread predates me.

    Nine years later and we still haven't figured out how to "trick an LS engine in to thinking it has VTEC". Damn, I was thinking technology would have advanced a bit more by now...
