    What would you guys choose.....I've narrowed it down to two different types of setups. Please put all considerations when you give me your opinion. Its down to a ls vtec with a b16 head with itr cams and valvetrain and a ls block, most likely will keep stock bottom, may get itr pistons. Or would you choose a b16a2 swap? Right now I have the head so I would have to get all the other parts. I was leaning towards the ls/vtec until I started thinking about stuff like smog and what I would have to do to get it smogged...what do you guys think?

    In my opinion I would go with the B16 just because of the reliability issues that you get with the LS/vtec.

    :doh:

    if you are in cali im pretty sure it is illegal to do head swaps (ie: LS/VTEC or CR/VTEC)

    keep that in mind

    let me search for how many times you posted something that seemed stupid to me.

    why don't you shut the fuck up too, noob. give the guy a break.


    peoples socialist republic of california = illegal for a headswap, meaning ls/vtec = bunk

    since smog is an issue, you're best bet is to get the same yaer or newer than your chassis, b16 from the 99-00 civic si, b18c1 from the same year or newer GSR, or a b18c5 from the same year or newer ITR.

    yea dude, if ur worried about smog u should deff stay away from building an lsvtec. a b16 will please ur needs im sure. besides, like -Incredib1e- said, lsvtecs are a bitch when it comes to reliabuility.

    hey slammed90lude

    I had a feeling somebody would say search this forum or something to that nature. n00b huh? Thats damn right. I decided to go to a new forum to get some other opinions but there are still people like you. Why are you on a forum if your gonna say that? It makes no sense. And I actually did a search but I was pretty tired to look through them all, why the hell am I explaining myself to you anyways? HAHAHHA Btw thanks everyone else for your opinions.

    Get an Ls, it does have about 20-30 hp less than the b16 but has like 20 lbs more torque. It's alot easier to obtain 20 hp then it is to obtain 20 lbs of torque....unless FI is involed, then you get both.

    I would say do an LS swap then go and get the LS passed by a ref. The do what ever the phuck you want to that LS motor. as long as the block # are the same as the bar sticker on your door insert the people at the smog shop are not going to know that it is not a real honda motor that you got approved by the Refs. All the stcker will say is 1.8l 199X Acura motor, and will have the motor serial # on it. It says nothing about DOHC VTEC on the sticker.

    okay first i dont even know why that foo was being an asshole, this is a FORUM! this is where people go for other peoples opinons. jeez take the stick out your ass and if you dont have anything nice to say, STFU! lol

    and ls/vtec not being reliable that bullshit. i mean theres alot of people out there that take alot of short cuts and thats what causes the motor to blow. you cant expect to put together a 2 cheap parts and no effort and money, and expect it to be a type r killer.

    like my motor it has a 2000 itr head and a b18a fully built bottom block, i dont run my shit crazy all the time but its been running good and hard for about a year without any problems. it mainly depends on how well you treat the car and how much effort you put into it. its usally the people that dont have the money to afford a rebuild that research it and do it right!

    ls/vtec is just as reliable as anything else as long as their built right. when you build like shit you get shit.
