yeah it's not like we're flaming... but if you have a GSR then you already have a more powerful engine than the ls/vtec...
Oh my, you most certainly do not....a properly tuned and stock ls/vtec will beat a stock gsr every day of the week...all things equal of course...

yes true LS vtec is strong. yes it can beat a GSR in the torque factor. but the thing that suck bout the LS vtec is that u still redline at the same ur vtec doesnt evn last that long. And if u want race a GSR u'll beat a stock GSR but when u start going bolt on's and other things then its all up to the driver's. both cars R the same and it all comes down to who drives better.

only in numbers... take into account the better N/A gear ratios of the gs-r tranny, and the fact that ls'vtecs don't like to be revved the hell out of like the b18c's... and how can you say "all things being equal"? there is no equality between a relatively heavily modified ls/vtec (swapping a head would be a relatively heavy mod) pitted against a gs-r with the same money invested...

i think the point being made is the ls/vtec is used to make a non vtec motor like an ls b18b to be more like the gsr/type r engines by adding a gsr/type r/b16 head to it. If you have a gsr, there is no reason to do ls/vtec, unless your motor is shot and you cannot rebuild it. Stick with the gsr engine.

all things being equal = drivers and conditions the same...it's just stock ls/vtec car vs. gsr...where did I lose you?

sll i heard is horror stories about the ls/vtec...like 2-4 months of operation then problems...so I would either stick with the gsr motor or make sure that someone with good refrences or very reputable work on something like the frankenstein swap

yes it is just like a gsrjust a vetc head no change in the emissions unless you put it on wrong
Speaking of emissions and what not. Comming down to smog (in California where I live, they are anal about alot of sh*t) would an LS/Vtec pass? I'm thinking that a mechanic would do his normal routine, get the VIN number and/or any other ID numbers he needed and notice that the engine stated in the VIN is different than whats installed in the car. So the guy would instantly say right then and there, "Nope. this won't pass"

Anyone got any information on attempting to smog a LS/Vtec in CA? Can it be done? If I were to do the LS/Vtec conversion on my daily driver, I'd definitely would want it to pass smog!

uhm, a built ls/vtec could rev to 8000 rpms, and who was it that said you keep the stock ls redline? ecu chip will change that..

when i got my smog done in cali, i dont think they checked the vin# on my motor. and correct me if im wrong, but isnt the vin on the block not the head? so a gsr head on an ls block wouldnt make a difference. or maybe it was some other # on the block?
but yea cali emissions are a [email protected]@ch.
