    keep the b18a crank in there, the b16 crank will lower how high the top of the cyliner is from the top of the block by alot and drop your compression a ton, so you lose a lot of power by doing that

    Use the LS rods and pistons if your gonna turbo it.Just get some arp rod bolts because the LS ones are weak

    If you have the money, go for the VTEC head swap. If you're trying to stay budget, leave the VTEC alone. You'll still have plenty of power potential on boost without VTEC. Leave the stock crank and rods in there too.
