hi i have a 95 integra with the b18b motor. i want to build a respectable engine that can be used safely as a daily driver. im also into vtec setups, not turbo or nos setups. trading in the car for a vtec or a vtec engine swap are not options for me. im not after the fastest car in the world and im happy with just a sorta basic vtec setup. also i have cashflow issues. basically im bad at saving so its only possible for me to save up bit at a time as opposed to saving up a big amount of cash to spend. so with this background in mind im interested in building a ls/vtec motor as this seems to be an option that suits all my needs. i want to put a vtec head onto my stock b18b block then slowly build up the internals as i save more money. but to begin with i just want to put the vtec head onto the stock unbuilt block. this basic setup will include such things as changing oil pump etc...but just not the block internals just yet. i just want to start off with the minimum basic setup and go from there. in regards to reliabilty, im happy to live with a bit of extra wear n tear in my engine as long as nothing comes breaking thru the cylinder walls! when i save up more cash i will then change the rods, pistons, cams etc. which head will suit my needs the best to put onto the b18b block? the b16a, b18c or the type-r head? and how high can i rev the engine with this setup before its not considered safe anymore? currently my b18b revs to 6800rpm. im happy if the ls/vtec setup just revs to around 8000rpm safely on stock internals. what power output should i expect with this basic setup? what will be the best crossover point that i should set the vtec to kick in with a vtec controller with this setup? how much will this basic setup cost as well? ie. parts & labor... basically if im able to get a reliable ls/vtec setup that revs to around 8000rpm, that beats other standard integras (except for the type-r of course), is a reliable daily driver and all this being cheaper then a total engine swap, i would be over the moon! sorry for being so longwinded. its just cos ive done a lil bit of research and i sorta only have this option to pursue. thats y im so specific with the details! any feedback is appreciated. thanks!!!
