Jrsc ls vtec

Hello all. I am new to the forum but I have research any problems I have had on here before. Thanks for all the help!

I wanted to get some insight into my scenario. I have a 93 LS Special Edition still in good condition. It is an R title and has about 114k miles on it. It is mostly stock, expect some stuff that has worn out over its life. It has the B18b1 and auto trans. I also have a JRSC for a b16 and a VTEC head. Given the age of the car, I am wondering if it is worth it to go through an install of the JRSC and make an LS VTEC? The car isn't worth much but still a joy to drive, but I also don't want to sink thousands trying to get this to work. Based on some of the photos on older threads, I believe my JRSC is not a complete kit.

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to TI. You mentioned that the supercharger is for B16 with a VTEC head, but inquired whether or not you should install LSVTEC. B16 block and VTEC head would not be considered LSVTEC.

If it was me, I would definitely supercharge the car if I had a supercharger sitting in my garage.

@Built not Bought, it is my understanding that the JRSC fits a B16 head, which is why I got the B16 head with it. It would be going on the stock B18b1. That would be the LS VTEC and then supercharged.

My concern is I may have trouble sourcing parts that are missing from the kit. I would want to do a lot of work myself to save money, but I don't have a ton of experience. I don't want to grenade a running LS SP.

Thanks for the clarification. Since you are going to install B16 head, you are going to need the following parts:

1. B16 intake manifold
2. Intake manifold gasket
3. -6AN external oil feed line for the head
4. B16 head gasket
5. Plug to close the oil passage in B16 head
6. LSVTEC dowels
7. VTEC ecu chipped for the SR
8. B16 exhaust manifold (2-piece)
9. Exhaust manifold gasket
10. Colder spark plugs
11. Larger injectors
12. Possibly 255 LPH fuel filter

I may be missing something, but you get the idea.

Also he still have the Automatic Transmission. He is limited on Tuning software. He also need LS/VTEC head studs, Adjustable cam gears and FPR/filter. He can get away with a 1 piece Manifold. I'm running a JDM ITR 1 piece on my LS (B18B1)/VTEC (B16)

About time I can now apply for Historic Tags for my GS/VTEC Automatic and no more SMOG

Thanks for the input. I was looking at the this kit

https://www.hptautosport.com/product...QaAsRfEALw_wcB


Looks like it has some of your list but I would still need:
1. B16 intake manifold - I thought this was part of the supercharger items?
2. Intake manifold gasket
7. VTEC ecu chipped for the SR - SR? Supercharger?
8. B16 exhaust manifold (2-piece)
9. Exhaust manifold gasket
10. Colder spark plugs
11. Larger injectors - What cc?
12. Possibly 255 LPH fuel filter

I have 3 large concerns.
1. the ability to do the work myself
2. the lack of completeness in the JRSC kit
3. blowing up the engine.


@phatintegra , how do you like the LS VTEC?

It was the best thing I have ever done and I’m on spray. I’m planing to go ITBs in the future. For the money I have spent I would of just went FI and would of saved money.

The LSVTEC kit looks complete, and for a good price.

1. You are correct
2. Hence the IM gasket shall also be included
7. I meant ECU chipped for SC
8. LS header (exhaust manifold) will not work with B16 head, hence you would need an oem B16 (2-piece) header. But I agree with phatintegra, it would be best to go with an aftermarket 1-piece header to improve the exhaust flow.
9. B16 exhaust manifold gasket will be needed to install the header
10. I suspect the spark plugs will have to be 1-step colder.
11. 440cc maybe all you need, but the supercharger specs would dictate the size, read the instructions.
12. More air means more fuel will be required. Your OEM fuel pump would likely not be able to accomodate the SC, hence and aftermarket high flow fuel pump will be required.

1. If you worked on engines before such as head gasket replacement, water pump, t-belt etc. I think you should be able to install SC yourself. Watch some youtube videos to make that decision.
2. Goodle what a complete SC kit looks like and compare it to yours. See if the parts you are missing are available for purchase, and if the prices are reasonable.
3. Make sure you get the correct ECU for the SC. If you can't, you will need to dyno the car. Chance of blowing engine up with SC is higher than if the engine is stock. Anything can happen.

Thanks for the input. I will have to dig out the JRSC and what is and is not there.
