    well if your into racing i would go with nitrous, a 50 shot should easily put you into the mid to high 13's if your a good driver. If this is your daily driver i would say stay non vtec because building an Ls/vtec the right way gets expensive and if you dont then it will get expensive when it blows up. Good luck with whatever your choice it man

    well the do's about ls/vtec for you are don't do it. Waste of your time and money most likely.


    Go for headers, some higher compression pistons, N20, or start saving for turbo.

    uhh thanks dude, thats why I said Or. If he doesn't want to save for turbo, I was saying to put headers, and HC pistons.

    it not headers but HEADER..if done correctly. ls/vtec can be as reliable as any other motor..it depend on ur budget..if u can the cash u can go FI , go for turbo, resleeve ur block and get some low compression pistons so u can run more boost..or you can just buy the turbo n slap it on n run 6-7 psi on stock internals. u can alway go all motor put a vtec head on wit ITR pistons n cams. resleeve ur block if u want higer rev. ETC

    Maybe you already did this, but if you want a little quick HP but dont want to spend any money, free up your crank. If you got power steering or AC, take off all the belts and just leave the alternator to crank. If you want a quick 12hp gain, buy a new crank pulley (waaaaay lighter). I dunno, im always looking @ cheap HP gains cuz IM SO F**CKING BROKE!!! :(
