    put a vtech head on it... then you have the cars original awesome torque added to the great horsepower gain with vtech. or just boost it.. from what i understand thats the best engine honda makes for turbos. Or the best i know of anyway.

    uhh dont listen to him...^^^^ there is more than to just slapping on a VTEC head... id say get another block an build it for whatever u want.. n/a or boost that way u dont have any down time since u just bought it.. ls motors r great for turbo but its also about what ur budget is an everything an depending on how much more power u wana make

    it dependss if u want vtec or not... but if u wanting a gsr motor than get one an put it on a stand an build it for whatever u want... patience is a big key in building a motor i found that out the hard way so just take ur time an dont rush it
