    Well, if you are talking about a b16 vs a LS b18 with the vtec head swap then I would say go with the b18 with the head swap. It has more bottom end torque.

    If your going to go turbo later i would recomend the ls swap..It is alot more boost friendly..But int he end it is ultimately up to you but i would LS it..

    :werd: The lsVTEC is a total waste of money unless you already have the LS block (ls teg or something like that) This is because you have to totaly rebuild the ls bottom end to withstand high revs of VTEC (ie 8000 rpm) you rev to 8000 on a stock LS block, your going to throw rods and shit in no time. Just get the b18c, same displacement, cheaper in the long run.

    However, if your going turbo, go with the ls block without the head swap

    Posting whoring is when someone goes around posting just shit. He joined and has said a lot of useful information, he just didn't find the board until now. IMO, its just catching up and having answers.

    IMO, if you aren't going turbo, then b16 sir II, b18c1 or b18c5.

    Turbo, ls swap or crv with ls tranny.

    if you want to simple get a b16a2 you will have good power and vtec is always a plus but i would go b18c1 you will have more power and a more powerfull vtec

    why spend the extra money for an OBD 2 b16a2, when the b16 SiR II is the OBD 1 version of that motor?

    no i meant 'fuckin ls' meaning 'get the ls.... i don't feel like repeating the same crap about advantages and disadvantages between b16 and b18b when it's in every 5 posts.

    he wanted opinions so i gave it... if i was post whoring i'd be in 'anything goes' OH GEE WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT that's where 65% of your posts are....

    thanks for the back up domestikilla

    You need to get off the turbo idea till the original poster says "ok I wanna turbo",all he asked was for the best choice for a swap.And trust,we have read that thread.By the way a vtec/t isn't going to be slower than a ls/t.If tuned and built,right it will run circles(slight exaggeration) around the ls/t.

    The answer is fairly simple "daily driver" was in the question for that I say b16 or just the b18....Reliability! more reliable than a hybrid. If you get the LS you can add the VTEC head later.

    If you go buy an ls swap, then by the time you are done adding the vtec head, you have as much, if not more into than a turbo setup would cost. A turbo can be used for daily driving. Its all of a matter of tuning, and are you ready to take care of it and build a reliable kit. With the LS tranny, your car shouldn't see much half or full boost action, it all depends on how its setup.
