Hmm. I'd suggest just going a head and turboing the motor, and then turning up the boost as you desire more power.

You can boost it as it is stock within reason, also.

the ls motor has a good potential w/o vtec. i help a friend put together a 92 eg hatch with an ls swap , blox turbo manifold and t-3/t04E and its really quick for being a stock motor.

heres a vid link we put on streetfire:


so copy that and watch it

the hatch now is going with a bottem end in it with MY b16 head for a built LSvtec set up... we'll have more vids here soon
