Head choices


Recommended Posts

I am looking into getting an integra, pref a LS from what i was told that the tranny's are the best to have when setting up a turbo application. but should i replace the head with a V-tec head or use the B18B1 head?

either way i was going to replace all valvetrain and cams. Only for the fact that i rather do things right. And i plan and having some serious HP in the car. can u explain the differnce in the two heads.. as far as why i cant turn a LS head into a V-tec head. And if i do need to get a V-tec head where can i get one.. cuz i can not find anything around here at all.

thanks

Mike

well an LS is either a B18A1 or B18B1, you just have to tell me the year of the integra and i could tell you.

 

LS gears are pretty long, which is decent for turbo, but an ITR trans is probably best because it comes w/ factory LSD.

 

I'm doing lsvtec w/ a B18C1 head, but you can use a B16, B17, or B18C5 head also...

B18B/A is NON VTEC. all the other mentioned dare VTEC. you cant turn a non vtec head into a vtec head. impossible. you can however , turn a non vtec engine , into a vtec engine.

LS trans good if you got some power to get through them , i mean they boast a 4.266 final drive as well , same as 2nd gen B16's. gears are just taller. VTEC head , GSR trans.
