I'm building an ls/vtec, i got the crank balanced, eagle 4340 steel

rods, 1st gen b16a pistons, vtec oil and water pumps. My

question is what should my rev limit be? I'm also using a stock

1st gen b16a head. Also what is the rev limit of the 1st gen

b16a "PW0". JayMan320 I know you know dude hook me up man.

8000rpm, you wont make much more power past that.
let me know how you like it, i've been researching it for a while and doing the conversion with a fully built up skunk2 stage 2 gsr p/p head.
good luck

I'm hearing from alot of guys that my b16a tranny is not strong

enough for 180-200whp numbers. Which would be a better

setup? A LS tranny or a GSR? Also i have a question that hasn't

been addressed in the furom of ls/vtec's. Wjat is a good boost

level on the ls/vtec with the stock sleeves?

8-10 daily driver...c/r 10:1 and lower...

The B16 can hold, Where did you find that misinfo? A Friend has a b20/vtec making well over 200hp, no tranny problems so far.

LS=longer gear ratios, suited for a FI car
GS-R=1st-2nd same as LS...3rd and up gear ratios become closer.

Will my 1st Gen B16 pistons be a bolt in process? I read that the

piston might have to be shaved ? What part of the piston needs

to be shaved if nessesery? Also is my 91 dx fuel pump combined

with the b16 injectors and a fuel presure regulator enough for

the 170-180 WHP i hope to fuel? Thanks you honda freaks
