he's asking if its good to boost an LS/vtec set up. i think.

the answer is yes ls vtec setups are good to boost IMO. the reason they make more horsepower N/A is because you have the entire rev range of the b16 head and you have the displacement of the b18. plus the b16 head flows really good.

so the answer to your question is yes you can boost an LS/Vtec

b20 blocks are thin. most people i know wouldn't really boost a b20 block unless you know what you're doing. i'e herd a lot of stories where the rod popped out of the block from boost.

the blocks arent thin. the rod bolts are the weak point in that engine. i wouldnt be doin anything like 15 psi on it..

throw a set of arp bolts and head studs and boost it. the worst you can do is pop an engine. i know i can find b20's pretty cheap and it dosent take long to swap out another one. jus get TUNING thats the best way to keep an engine from detonateing. detonation=bad lol
