    If you don't know what parts you need, you won't be starting this week. Matts96hb prally has the best info for Turbo non V's.

    Its still pretty basic info that's all over the web tho.

    You can make the same power with an LS as a LS-V, but it takes much more work on the LS to even match the internally stock LS-V (I'm talking mainly about the cylinder head here.)

    You'll need cams, valve springs, retainers, extensive port work, an aftermarket intake manifold and TB to get there. In my experience, it isn't worth the trouble. My car made 450 at the tire before I decided to go LS-V. Still makes about the same amount of power, but is far easier to work on. The stiffness of the valve springs makes it a real PITA to get the tension on the belt right, and the springs tend to stretch belts much easier.

    Another option is to source a p8r cylinder head. This head has the same diameter valves as the VTEC heads, but is still non-VTEC. You could then sleeve your bottom end, bore it out to match the cylinder head, and pick a mild set of cams to complete the build. It'd be rock solid. That was the route I was planning on going, but LS-V turned out to be much easier considering I already had most of the parts.
