    But the long and short is, what power to expect depends on a lot of factors, and aftermarket parts made to make more power will do that.

    yup. a 9.5:1 vtec motor is pretty weak.

    can someone answer the question Do you need to change pistons or can you run with ls bottom end except for oil pump.

    if i ran this set up with jdm type r pistons what would be the hp and torqe
    if i ran this set up with ctr what would be the hp
    and if i ran it with ls pistons what would be the hp

    no one can answer your questions with how much power you will make. it depends on a LOT of things. however, all things being equal, i can tell you that the CTR pistons will yield the highest compression ratio (12.x:1 range) the ITR pistons will be the next highest (11.x:1 range) and the ls pistons willl be the lowest (9.x:1). generally higer compression means more power. of course this is all assuming that everything is built correctly too.

    my suggestion would be to run b16 pistons. they will yield even higher compression then the ITR pistons (high 11.x:1 range), and will attach to your LS rods with no modification (ITR/CTR requires a bit of modifying to either rod or piston to get them to fit)

    you'll hit high 14's but, this set-up is better for tubocharging, if your plan is N/A go for higher comp. like itr or ctr.
