    yes you can use the gsr crank for a slightly better rod stroke ratio

    then its not an lsvtec

    the RS is because of the ls crank.... with out the crank you just have a gsr in an ls block

    yea thats true, but he just asked if it could be used in the block, and really ls/vtec is a bad name for the type of build, because technically to make it a true ls/vtec you'd have to keep the shitty ls pistons, making it a terrible all motor build

    what?

    you can use b16 pistons on ls rods and still be an lsv. ITS THE CRANK RODS THAT GIVE THE EXTRA DISPLACEMENT
    SO shut the fuck up noob unless you know that youre typing. idiot...

    we are talking about two diff things then blanco...

    i would use a gsr block over an lsv if i had to do it again , because of the oil squirters / girdle and RS ratio..

    but the whole point of an lsv is the extra TQ it produces because of the ls crank /rods

    so
    this thread is about the crank in an lsvtec.... its an ls

    wrong,

    lsvtec = ls crank/rods in LS/ITG/GSR block

    gsr crank/rods in any other 1.8 block is a gsr [might as well keep the gsr block if possible]

    end of story.

    i didnt invent it. talk to him/her about this. point is people do it. thats not up for discussion.

    notice how you dont get the point.....

    ITS AN LSVTEC BECAUSE OF THE CRANK/RODS thats the LOGIC get it...


    lets review

    [honda jeopardy!!!}


    the question asked

    what crank do i use for an lsvtec?


    is the answer "what is an ls crank " pat?

    yes!!! you win 200 hondollars

    the lsv should not be built with non vtec pistons BTW. the vtec pistons have larger valve reliefs... [ it can be, like my lsv but it shouldnt. i have to stick with oem cams]

    and i was getting my point across dont get you panties in a bunch. i have no issue with you... i know your no noob....


    just so i understand

    if i have a gsr block with ls crank and rods with b16pistons and a gsr head, i dont have an ls vtec i have a built gsr?

    or is it a built lsvtec or type R?

    ok girls. lol damn. he has a bare block and is asking what crank he should use. I SAY, use whichever you want.LS,gsr,hell get a type R if you want. any of them will work.

    heres a question. do have the rods? if so what are they. IF you have stock ls rods and wish to use them(i wouldnt) i recommend arp bolt for extra insurance.

    continue arguing. TIME IN!!!!!!!

    formby, why are you such a fucking cocksucking prick?

    to the OP, you can use a GSR crank in the LS block without issue. You will need to use hte GSR rods also. if you use a LS crank, you will need to use LS rods.

    You can put whatever pistons on the either rods. I think the CTR pistons need to be modified for the small end to fit into the piston, I think its this way on P30's as well. but, for the most part you can use any p16 piston on the LS rod to gain some compression.

    When i got the bare block it came with the stock crank and rods and pistons but they are kinda shot, so im going to start looking for pistons for it. I also have all ARP bolts/studs for this build, any other recommendations for me? thanks guys

    ARe you planning on using a girdle? If not, look into ARP's main stud kit. probably overkill, but... fuck why not? right?

    Im with you on this. IMO, the point of an LSVTEC is to use the LS block and crank and rods... up the compression how ever much you want or even drop it... but, LSVTEC is built by combining the LS stroke with the flow of the VTEC head.

    damn, i ramble a lot.
