SpeedDemon Posted March 24, 2010 Share Posted March 24, 2010 ok so i put lsvtec into the search and went through all 8 pages and found nothing to answer my few questions. even the stick at the top didnt answer them lol. so here are my questions i just started my lsvtec build today. picked up the type r oil pump,pickup, waterpump, pr3 rods, and p30 pistons all with 30K on them. they are in great shape. ill be getting a entire b18a1(1993) long block for $100 with spun rod bearing. i just had a few questions after reading your old lsvtec build thread...(this is going in my 92 d16z6 hatch) i plan on running a b16 head and hopefully a type r intake manifold. so with that the p30's on ls rods should net me around 12:1 compression? that seems a bit high for an everyday driver with reliability in mind. i have the pr3 rods on them now(came like that). is there a way to lower compression such as using the pr3 rods? or is that possible when using an LS crank? if not then what rods should i use? RINGS- should i get hastings rings or just go oem? Adjustable Fuel Pressure Reguator- should i get one or get better injectors? ECU-what ecu should i use? STUPID QUESTION- should i get a tune after doing the swap? seeing as there is no actual ecu for a Frankenstein. or can i just unplug the battery to reset the ecu? if so what kind of tune? recommendations for a clutch/flywheel set up? coilovers or OEM B series suspension? im sure ill have more questions after this. but it would eb greatly appreciated if you could help me out. im shooting for 200WHP maybe 220's with cams and some other goodies. whatever is cheap is best for me, as long as its relaible. DO NOT ANSWER IF YOU DONT HAVE THE ABSOLUTE CORRECT ANSWER. i dont have money to just throw away and time to waste. thanks in advance Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
