    one of my teachers has access to a machine shop and can do a ls/vtec for me for pretty cheap. i have a b18b in my hatch now but what would i all need? b16/b18c head ofcourse but what else? he didnt give me a for sure price but said he'll give me a deal. should i jump on this offer and do the conversion or should i stick to mah original plans and build up my own turbo kit? thanks for the help just lookin for a 13 sec. daily driver. to date:14.7 at 92 mph
