tha cheapest gs-r engine that i could find was in texas selling for $2300, 100,000+ miles on it, and i had to go get it my self (to see wat kind of condition its in). im buying an ls engine for $350, 83,000 miles on it, and im paying a dealer to instal it and convert it for $500. big diffrence for me. i guess i wasnt spasifik enough about my Q: will i have problems with the trany?
500 dollars for an LS/VTEC just sounds too good to be true. And things that sound too good to be true, usually are.
There is MUCH more than just slapping a head on there, like I said, it sounds like he doesn't know what he's doing and when you're doing an LS/VTEC conversion you want someone with experience. It is not an easy thing to do, take it to someone who has done it before and who has done it SUCCESSFULLY.
ask him if he has done one before and go from there and make sure u get the head studs from arp or anyother company that make after market one that would hold really good ihad problems when i did that and doing the ls vtec is not hard i saw my mec/friend doing it so many times and i havent had anymore problem with it i have a gsr water pump with the timing belt from gsr because i have a gsr water pump and the tranny u wont have any problem with it. any more question just ask.
basicly im paying $400 for the ls block to be put in. and $100 for the ls/vtec conversion. i could do it my self, but i dont have the time. doing the conversion is so easy its not funny. all you have to do is, rerout the oil and plug in the vtec, slap on the timing belt and gs-r bolts, and of you go. i dont know why you guys making so big a deal about it! the hardest part is the block.
