Re: Which Engine for Forced Induction??

Ya see I'm a huge fan of preludes but now this poll is making me sway towards the integra side, cuz i wanna run boost no matter what and i think a ls/vtec is gonna be the best or maybe get the GSR and just put low comp pistons

A boosted LS/Vtec can make massive amounts of power, but it will generally be a pretty volitile setup. If I were you, I'd go with a boosted B18C1 with low comp pistons (like you said). You'll make plenty of power and have a more reliable engine.

A LS/Vtec can be a very good motor if built correctly and tuned corrdctly for redline, etc...

There is a recent thread in here somewhere where someone asked, so we talked about that.

Re: Which Engine for Forced Induction??

12psi on c1 or c5 is alot, but can be done. as for 300hp i dont know. even with engine management, youll have to run it rich as hell to preven detonation, and running rich will lower your hp. the ls has lower compression and a tad more displacement. also since the cams arent performance oriented towards N/A power you get more boost kept in. i also disagree the ls is better then the gsr or other like tranny, to a certain degree. a car without long gears thats turbo are the 6-speeders(like skylines; they have crossed ratios). main reason why is first gear, for turbo you want a short(numerically high) first gear to help reduce lag and get you into the power band. but, highway racing, a ls geared turbo motor will have advantage over gsr.
