    :withstupid: i also agrre with the head issue. it really depends on how much you want to spend and if you have another car to use during the build up of your engine. i personally like the Ls/vtec. but it has to be built right. not just a slap on of a vtec head. but a vtec head is like do all the work to your ls head. much much better flow plus cams. thats the way i went

    Are you opposed to building an LSVTEC?
    Do you want to run NA?

    All Motor in an LS in your teggy will take some $$$ to hit 13's. It can be done. A guy that I know off of clubsi.com (HXguy) had a all motor civic hx 97 i think, it was all motor and non vtec and he hit 13's pretty easy. But he had a 2.0 bottom end, shorter gearing, head work, and it was tuned out, and I believe slicks as well. He eventually put a vtec head on it and I think it hit 12's for sure.
