    pulled the swapped 93 ls motor from my crx and opted to rebuild it (not that it had issues, just felt like it needs more power). this is it's current setup. I have kept it OBD0

    89 crx si shell
    90-91 ls ecu, dis, fuel rail
    450 cc dsm injectors
    93 ls block, stock internals
    97 ls head, intake manifold
    97 dc 2pc header
    holly 70 mm throttle body
    oem 93 ls tranny
    custom 2.5 exhaust pipes
    magnaflow muffler
    magnaflow hi-flow cat.
    b&m fpr


    now, this is what i'm looking at adding...

    t3 turbo
    custom manifold and downpipe
    35mm wastegate
    turbo xs bov, boost controller
    custom oil lines and i/c piping
    eclipe side mount i/c (low profile look)
    oil cooler
    ...internals...
    eagle rods
    eagle pistons
    dart sleaves
    ...head...
    skunk 2 valve springs, retainers, intake manifold, tb and camgears
    valve job

    now for my question....i was just going to keep my stock cams. but... what other oem cams do you think would work better...97 ls, 93ls, or other? just curious

    If your just going stock there's not much camwise for your LS. Some great OEM cams for the VTec guys, but your pretty much at the top of your game for the non-VTec. Leave whats in there in there.

    how much power do you want to make? because it seems like new sleeves aren't necessary.

    i'm not sure exactly the power ouput goal quite yet. I know a few of the parts aren't necessary but i figure if i don't put them in and decide i want more power i'll have to open it up again. but if i do and decide i want low boost at least i'll know the block is safe ( as long as everything else is tuned ). my way of saving time in the long run :)
