    Before someone else says it:
    "Depends on what you want to do with your car"
    But it sounds like you want to go fast, a good cheaper way to get there is LS-T (b18b+turbo).
    A good more expensive way to get there is the other options you mentioned.

    WERD but I think you will get bored with the B18B1 until you turbo it so as long as thats OK with you then it's all good. By the way get a different tranny than the LS it SUCKS take it from me I know.

    Buy some porno and lotion to keep yourself out of boredom until you can put a turbo on that b18b. Come this time next year its not going to matter if you waited a few extra months, but you will be happier in the long run having gotten the same end result with less money spent (unless you bought a LOT of porno and lotion in the mean time).

    So why not go LS/VTEC turbo?

    Why would you just do a LS turbo? Is there something that I don't know?

    Ease, Cost, down time.
    If those aren't of importance, turbo a LSV or GSR.

    More you deviate from stock, the more that can go wrong. I'd rather up the boost a few more pounds than add Vtec and have worry about tuning in the vtec.
