    Valvetrain...port and polish...cams...and a goooood tune. Should make decent power and be reliable.

    If you get the c5 (which personally i would get out of those choices) make sure it is coming with the c5 lsd tranny. Both the c5 motor and tranny are built like a rock and it would be pretty dam fast. But as the guy above said get the c5 and p and p it valvetrain and some good cams should make a decent amount of power.

    why rebuild the sohc? you can get lonblocks for cheap, heck just a block is cheap.

    build a quility DIY FI kit for the sohc. and stick the rest in savings... i wish i had my ek before i had the lsv built. i wouldve saved some $$.

    Well I'd go with the b18c, more potential for down the road or a b18b turbo which would be cheaper.
