    IMO, its way too small for an ls/vtec.

    i think you would be much happier with a t3 60-1 or a t3/to4e

    It cant hurt. Don't expect to generate much more than 50 additional hp with it @ 10 psi, tune well, I am assuming if you're fully built you most likely have a high cr, and in this case tuning to the hilt is a MUST!
