    I think you need to do some more research before you tackle boosting an ls/vtec. Just my .02

    not sure the specs on your cams that you have but they might have a tad too much for FI applications.

    also don't forget about the shiftlinkeage.

    I think skunk 2 makes turbo cams, also heard that running gsr cams would work well also for a FI engine.

    for shift linkage i'd imagine you'd need the linkage from a '99-'00 si, but something else may work. and get some gsr cams.

    Forget about the GSR tranny... LS tranny is better for Turbo appz... Why? Well the answer is simple... The longer gear ration of the LS tranny allows you to stay longer in the peak HP so you get torque for a longer period... GSR tranny shorter gear ratio will make the car start faster because it reaches the peak HP faster but... 1/2 a sec later, LS tranny will overtake you...
