    because you haven't done any research at all on this project. and because you type like you are sending a text message.

    wow, you are a tough guy. you have me so scared i'm actually going to help you.

    1) you don't know what the fuck you are doing
    2) you have never driven a 300hp car. you are grossly understimating the driveability and work needed to achieve.
    3) do some research ace. nobody is going to spoon feed the info for you.

    in the end, just do a turbo on the b18.

    Have you ever driven a 300 horsepower Honda? That's a LOT of power for a small, FWD car. It wouldn't really be practical for a daily driven ride. I'd say just skip the VTEC head, and install your turbo on the LS and shoot for about 200 wheel horses...

    oooo holly s#!t i can already make that power wow
    i feel really dumb now
    kuz i have eagle rods, forged (DSM) pistons (had to bore block out), ARP head studs
    throws ram horn turbo header, and a G16(DSM stock turbo), down pipe, HKS BOV, and a air to water intercooler

    so do u think i should do some head work to the PR3 head or just throw that b16a2 head on
    thats my mean question to go ls v or not
    so give me ur two cents

    wow dude i just got really confused i was look at that pr3 head and comparing it to one on line
    i found one that had a vtec selind and mine looks indenticole to it (just not seloind) but mine has a valve cover like the b18a1 have
    so could mine be a b16 head just with the worng valve cover
    or do the b18 heads look like the b16 head on the inside

    LS valve covers don't fit on VTEC heads...

    here is my suggestion you want more top end then do the lsv conversion. If your not soo concerned about top end then just turbo your ls and call it a done deal.

    My opinion if you already have all the supporting mods that will be done to the bottom end then slap that vtec on. There is no sense on doing a LSV if the LS bottom end is still stock....reason being is you cant rev a stock ls to 8k even if your head can rev to that limit.
