    i am amost certin, that it wont last that way, plus u have have to enlarge the dowel pins, get a oil passage blocked up and tap the oil pressure switch, its not s simple as just throwing it on

    I think to make it reliable, you should use everything type R (pistons, oil pump etc.) and put a B16 Head ..... i cant really say that will make it reliable... it depends on the use of the car....if you are gonna race, which you obiously are then it cant be 100% reliable because the LS block is not meant for VTEC....
    thats what I think because of experience.... I think you should just get a B16B or a B18C or B18C5 it would be cheaper ...trust me your gonna end up paying more than just to get a type r engine

    if you are gonna spend money to get all that type r stuff, do like I am doing. b18c5 block, darton sleeves, eagle rods, and wiseco pistons. I rab into some good deals and am only gonna have about 1500 bucks in it. I'll be able to beat the snot out of it. Then what is great is I can turn around and sell the type R pistons and rods out of the block for like 500 bucks. NICE
