Ls vtec engine build?


Junior Member
I'm going to build my engine over the next week and I was wondering which complete gasket kit I will need.

I have a B18A1 block (stock ls rods with p30 B16 Pistons and arp rod bolts) and a B16A1 cylinder head. I already have the golden eagle ls vtec conversion kit, main and rod bearings and rings but I am stuck on which complete gasket kit to buy... I was thinking I may need the B16 gasket kit because I was told the only difference between the B18 and B16 block is the deck height? Is this true? The B18 kit will only give me the botom end gaskets and no topend.

Any help will be great

Thanks in advance.

you're going to hae to mix and match. the ls bottom ends are not the same as the gsr bottom ends
