    If you're not using a cable tranny, this PROBABLY isn't a EF/DA question. Moving ot the correct forum.

    if you're putting the Ls tranny on to the b16 then you are going to fall out of Vtec when shifting into the next gear. for instance you are racing someone...then shift to the next gear..you will fall out of vtec because the b16 tranny or any other vtec are made for vtec engagement..with the Ls tranny..you will fall out of vtec, which causes you to be a little bit slower.

    it only works better when you can stay in VTEC, i.e. if the gearing is shorter(b16) then your rpm will stay higher and VTEC will continuosly be engaged, if your gearing is longer(LS) your engine will fall out of VTEC at every shift.

    just in case you don't know VTEC is where the b16 shines.

    Vtec engages a secondary lobe on the intake and exhaust cam that had a much higher and longer lift than when your car is not in vtec. this higher longer lift cam is what allows the engine to make 180hp way up high(8000 rpm).
