    You're already wired for VTEC, so use the GSR.

    Yup. They both present about the same difficulty for physical installation- the wiring is just a bit different.

    It depends what he wants to do with the motor, LS motors are great for boost or an LS-VTEC setup. If he gets the GSR motor be sure to get rid of that stupid intake manifold with the butterfly assembly.

    everyone says "LS for boost", fuck, the gsr is great for boost too. as i understand it, its the best vtec engine for boost. you will start with a better platform, and mod for mod, the gsr will have more hp, torque, and will all around be a better engine in the end. b18c hands down, whether you do all motor or boost. :worthy:
