    Well I have been waiting and gathering parts for some time now and it finally will become a reallity in the next week or so. I have never owned a swapped b series vehicle only an integra and prelude vtec and have wanted to do this for a long time. I only have this pic for now but will add to it when the project is completed.

    1995 civic cx hb
    b18b1 block stock "1998"
    stock ls pistons
    p28/crome from phearable
    gsr head stock "2000"
    hondata style im gasket
    aebs im manifold
    arp head studs
    itr water pump
    itr oil pump
    itr t belt
    golden eagle ls/vtec kit
    itr flywheel
    action 6 puck clutch
    brand new itr tranny
    itr cams

    block is in awesome condition as well as the cylinder walls and the head is mint almost like it was never run.

    im looking for about 170-175 at the wheels and i will be happy for now.

    Well we will find out shortly after the build. I think 170 is very obtainable based on friends dynos.

    I think import builders dyno is reading low for that setup actually.

    I will post more pics next week when I have all of the parts that I ordered.

    the addition of a better then stock header i think can get me there as well.

    you should have built up the block more - GSR or b16a2 pistons and ARP rod bolts (with the rods resized of course)

    with your setup you might touch 175.

    don't rev it too high with those LS rod bolts.

    good luck though man, and congrats on finishing it. did you do the tap of the head yourself? (im in the process of building an LSVTEC) and how far down do you tap it to plug the oil hole? just enough for the plug to sink under the surface?

    and props to the phearable.net ECU, good stuff. good people.

    yeah it wont be revved past 8k and that wont be very often. the block build thing isnt totally necessary, sure i would have liked a little more compression but i'm not trying to break any records here. the issues with ls vtecs start from revving too high but really come down to water and oil pumps. the people you see with the problems left their ls water and oil pumps in; the ls pumps just cant supply enough at those rpms.

    tapping of the head will actually start this week when i have time and will be tapped just enough to go below the surface of the head

    my good friend has an ls vtec with stock rod bolts and hasnt had any problems at all and he tears on that motor everyday. worst thing taht happens is i have the block redone or get another one.

    the only thing that sucks about the LS pistons is the low compression. thats why i recommended the GSR or b16a2 pistons, you wont get HIGH compression, just a bit above stock.

    i think i may do that also, not touch the bottom end. beacuse now that i think of it, i dont think i would want to go anywhere near 8k anyways...? opinions anyone else?

    Those ls pistons will be perfect for a small turbo setup... t3/t4, low boost, a good tune, you could do easily over 200 safely, no turbolag.

    I just did mine this week, I was a little scared, I lubed up the tap and went at it. Im going to be sending mine to a mechine shop to be milled (very little) and to be cleaned up a bit, before I put the ITR valve springs in.

    I just need to install the timing belt, valvecover and make sure everything is top dead center. Hopefully I will be doing the swap soon.

    Thanks for looking.
