this is the internet captain. we can do whatever the fuck we want.
If your friend rich is the one who posted the bogus times and and the bullshit specs, then he knows jack shit about honda and even less about trap speeds in a quarter mile. I'm sorry that i'm being a dick but eckoman_pdx is looking for help with a swap he was also trying to find out how reliable LS/VTEC is. You've not even done the swap and don't have the car, and your giving him advice? YES, that pisses me off! He was taking your word that this swap was safe and there are no problems b/c you were claiming to have a reliable one. Thats dispicable you should be banned.

Hey, thanks for giving me real advice whtteg. Thats for being honest and letting me know what you know about and what you speculate. Thats for helping out. I appericate honesty. Also, thanks for the back-up DblOvrhedCamron, very much appericated. I agree. Posing as someone you are not and lying is dispicable enough, but handing out bogus advice is wrong and dishonest. You are correct, I am trying to find out as much information, fact, etc as I can about the ls/vtec turbo vs regular ls turbo before I start putting money into building my ls up. Especially since thats the current motor in the car, so once I start to build it up, the car is going no-where fast until I am done. Again, thanks to all who are honest, and all who are backing me up like whtteg, DblOvrhedCamron, etc. Anyone with actual knowledge who wants to join the disscusion and talk about what they know, your contributions will be appericated. and I agree DblOvrhedCamron, something should be done about ssshhhh (_burn_), ban him, expose him to all of af, something. I mean, this thread has a ton of innaccurate info or info that he had no clue about. Just a lot of wasted bandwith. I started the thread to get honest advice, not to waste the servers bandwith with bs. Again, thanks to all who provde help and honest information.

He swears thats the combo I should go for. He swears buy it. He'll do others, but he swears by that one. So seriosuly, whats the deal here. Whtteg? hybridsol? someone? I am not trying to be a so-called "dumbass." I am honestly building an engine. And as you know, thats a shitload of money, well over 5 grand for all of it, turbo etc. well over that. So I am trying to get my facts straight before I go and spend the $$. Also, I know I read in a book by Sport Compact Car that it is bad to stroke a honda engine. If I remember correct, it was because of the rod- stroke ratio, I could be wrong. Anyone know? I am looking for serious info here, not people screwing around. This is pretty much the same info I have been looking for the entire time. So now that we know who on here was screwing around, can people please actually stop screwing around here so I can figure this shit out and start planning my engine more. Thank you to all who help
I've helped with an LS VTEC swap but am not really that farmiliar with it, CJ's done one, no turbo though. But he's probably the smartest person I know when it comes to turbo's (give the man some insight). He's pretty good with that shit. I really don't know what to tell you about the head? The b16a head seems to be the better way to go though. Or atleast thats what everyone says. (lower CR).

Me too, over in the Street Racing forum...Your quarter mile MPHs were so far off it was humerous

But anyways...I wish one of the old mods here was still around, Baldy. He lives around me. He had a professionally built LS/Vtec in his teg, and it gave him NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS. I've also assisted in the build of one, and granted it runs fine with no issues, but isn't anything super impressive. The way I see it is this...You have, let's say, a 50% chance of it working right. If it does you have a decently running car, that makes decent hp and tq. If it doesn't work that's obviously bad b/c you'll constantly be putting money into it, like Baldy was, or you'll just end up scrapping it after wasting a lot of time and money. To me it's not worth the risk. You can get more power out of a straight b18(I know CJ will agree with me here). That's just my opinion though.

Self, Hey thanx man. You hit the nail on the head for why I have been asking about the LS/Vtec this whole thread. I've heard mixed reviews out it's relaiblity, and I wasn't about to start one with no good info on it. Still trying to figure it all out, and not just LS/Vtec, but what in all I want to do. I mean, turbo. built internals, etc thats given. I just want it figured out before I start as best I can. That way I'll have considerly less suprises almog the way, you know what I mean? And Seriously, someone outta ban that clown that was faking in where, pretending to be who he is not.

ssshhhh (_burn_) :

I was the one that was shown this thread and right-clicked on your supposed pic and found out where it belongs.

You are a despicable fraud who reads about cars on the internet, and think you know them. Go buy some school clothes or something...summer's almost over.

eckoman_pdx:

One of my better friends has a shop here in AZ, and he is a Honda specialist. Between him and everybody else I know that has done the swap, I know to only recommend this swap if you have plenty of engine parts and/or engines laying about your garage.

It's been pretty consistent, but as far as I have seen, 6 months seem to be the average time-period when you have to take the motor apart or close to it due to problems. Unless you're going with highly-forged, highly expensive materials for the internals, don't do it. Since you're going to be spending a lot of money on it in the long run anyway, you'd probably be better-off with a turbo-LS set-up, or if you want to go all-motor, a built b18 or a stroked b16 will go a long way. Somebody else can say Type-R motor, but IMHO, you could spend the extra money on a b16 and have better motor. But if you wan't bragging rights then yeah b18c5/b18c(JDM) all the way.

Hope that helps.

carrrnuttt , thanks a lot. That actually does help. Yeah, by the time you spend all that moeny, every 6 months, that would get bad. I think an LS- Turbo, or even all-motor ls would be better. Definately more reliable than 6 months if done correct. I think I am leaning towards turbo though. I know a proper built all-motor can rock, but I am partial to turbo's Again, thanks for the info, it does help. Thanks for being honest too. Thanks to all who have been honest, instead of fruadulantly posing as someone you are not. Anyways, so yea, I am thinking turbo-ls. I've heard too much negative about the ls-vtec, including from the guy I know who put my swap in. Of course, he didn't care to tell me why it was bad to do the ls-vtec. Just that, "it is, don't do it." And thats how this whole darn thing got started. Anyways, now I can concentrate on lookin into turbo's (or all-motor if I choose, but I don't it), lol. Thanx for your help.

It's all good, I no hurry, lol. From the number of posts this thread has accumulated, I get the feeling it's gonna hang around for a while while we wait for CJ, anyone have an opinion on what turbo's they like I know I'll eventually get around to checkin out the maps and junk on a bunch, but haven't had the time recently, lol.
