    i am picking up a jdm b16a head today...i have a b18a block...and i am going to do ls vtec...heres all the parts i need to buy...let me know if i left any ones out :


    b16 dizzy
    B18a Headgasket (i was told to use the b18 head gasket instead of b16)
    ARP head studs
    Golden eagle LS vtec conversion kit
    Pr3 ecu


    Stuff i want to get in the future :

    VAFC
    Chipped ecu



    i dont know if im missing some stuff on the top list..if i am can someone correct me....but i also wanted to know how much my compression would be if i did ls vtec with a b16 head...and about how much hp and torque id have with intake,header,full exhaust,and advanced timing..with the ls vtec motor?


    Thanks. :worthy: :worthy: :worthy: :worthy:

    you will run too lean on pr3....get a pr4 and a vtec controller..also make sure you have obd0 dizzy.

    Im not sure if you will run too lean with a pr3, but i do agree that a chipped pr4 with a vfac will be a better set up for you.

    Ie: Better fuel controll, vtec engagment points ect.

    1.6 liter ecu on a 1.8 liter motor.that is a ..that is a 12% increase in displacement..you should get your pr3 chipped for a higher displacement motor and have knock sensor removed. you will also have to run twin o2 sensors on your pr3. i would send off my pr4 to zdyne and get a one wire vtec conversion specifally for a lsvtec. i tried running a p30 on lsvtec and it ran lean as fuck.

    edit: i would do the pr4... i see no reason to hack up a perfectly good rare as hell pr3.

    you can use the pr3 and get an adj FPR for a little more fuel (if you have detonation), ...but i run a chipped pr3 (spoon chip) and it runs rich 55psi...a pr4 ecu does not have ignition timing for the vtec so stay away....a vafc hack is out not what you need....get turbo edit or any ems....thats the way to go
