Default lsvtec.. opinions

lsvtec. is it a good idea? the major concern about these buildsis reliability. but lots say if done right, itll be jus as reliable as a manufactured motor. what is it that you have to do right or what is it that goes wrong w/ them?

People leave the bottom end stock and try to rev it to take advantage of the dohc vtec head. Everything from the cooling, oil pressure, to the rod bolts and crank scavaging come into play and need attention.

The H22 will be a great option for you if you choose to add a supercharger it will keep up with and hand it to alot of things on the road.
