    Formby is right. Use the VTEC stuff, but you need to change your oil and water pumps. The LS ones don't flow enough and you will starve your motor of oil.

    all obd2 oil pumps are the same. the only difference is the water pump has more teeth on the vtec one and they flow better over 7500 rpms.

    you are not going to "starve" the engine of oil with the stock ls/b20 oil pump.
