    Sounds great to me. Why don't you put a Vtec head on the ls block? That's my only suggestion.

    I've never actually seen one but from what I've gathered it seems like an ls/vtec is more powerful than any motor by itself.

    You'll get plenty of power from an Ls turbo anyways :).

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and figure that this is in the wrong forum.

    If you are going to do all that why don't you stroke it to a 2.0 or 2.1?!?!

    we did a ls stroker 84mm 2.0 for a ls/vtec and for fun threw a stock ls head on it and it fucking ripped for a ls. Then we did the r head.

    Well that's what I'm talking about. This forum is for 1987 and older cars.


    And the stroker kit is effective, but it's also not cheap, nor is it for the beginner to attempt.
