    you are going to do some research but here is what you need so far, you have the vtec that is a plus, you are going to need a b18b block or if you could get a b18c1/5 block even better. if you get the b18b you are going to need the kit for the oil and there is a plug that you are going to have to remove, you are going to need a new head gasket, replace the flywheel clutch and then put the trans on and that is about it but do more reseach because there is alot to do ok man

    I know this is a old thread and I am sorry to pull it from the dead but with the combo on you build up I was thinking it would put more power to the ground.I am about to install a ls/vtec into a ek and wanted to know what you guys thought of the setup

    The block and tranny has about 90,000 miles on it. It is mated with a 2nd gen B16 VTEC head that has around 70,000 miles. The VTEC oil galley has already been blocked off. The tranny is a cable transmission. The exhaust ports have been ported.B18B bottom end with als tranny

    Not much of a setup really. You should also have the GSR/ITR water pump, oil pump, timing belt, b16 pistons (not necessary, but a good idea because LS pistons don't have valve reliefs [sp?] and you will want those if you are milling the head or using big cams), arp rod and head bolts, a VTEC tranny (again not REALLY needed, but you will fall out of VTEC on every shift without one) and depending on the model of EK, possibly an ECU. Of course if you do use the B16 pistons then you will also need bigger injectors and some sort of tuning device ie. V-afc, hondata, AEM ems, motec, etc....
