    The New LS/water pump should be fine, from whati know, the gsr,si and b20 oil pumps flow the same, but a type-r one floes a little more oil...,just use your b16 one, and if you get a chance,get a pro/drive oil gear. we use pro-drive gears in all our turbo carss and have never had any sort of oil supply issues.. -paul

    You can use the LS water pump, if you do you have to use the LS timing belt as well. Because of the way the LS pump is geared it will start to cavitate at a lower RPM than the VTEC water pumps will. I don't know what that RPM is.

    Did he give you a reason why? He is the first person I have heard of reccomending that.

    That makes sense. How high are you planning on revving this engine?

    cory said it'd have no problem going to 8500, and i trust him as he's built several ls/vtec engines and had a setup identical to the one i'm in the process of building... but it probably wont see past 8200 very much.

    Right on, I'll let you know how it runs.

    I have never talked to him, but Cory sounds like the man. Is he in CT like most everyone else here?
