1- you may use your existing ls timing belt as long as you keep your ls water pump. If you switch over to a gsr water pump, you will need to get a gsr timing belt. The number of teeth are different on both, not by much but still different

2- vtec solenoid is located on the bottom left corner of the head. its right near the cam cap on the end. You can probably buy one off here if you dont have one, just post a wtb thread

3-yes the ls headers will work.

I have answers to two of your ?.

2. the vtec solenoid is located on the left of the head by the cam plug its right next to the distributor it has a metal cap usually rusted about an inch in diameter and 1.5 inches in height.

3. they will bolt on but you need to look in the exhaust tech articles and it will have your answer for the best choice which would be a tri-y since now you have vtec.

Edit: Dam it Ketu you beat me to it.

Its not headers. It's header, and the header goes to your block anyways.

Oh just some other information on the lsvtec swap. This info IS elswhere on the site but.... it is not just a simple bolt on affair although it is not that hard. You must relocate a dowel pin to make the head fit on the block. You must also tap into the block and run an oil line to provide oil pressure for the vtec function. goto google and search lsvtec there is good info. hope this helps.

So about how long should one expect the car to be down during an LS/VTEC job? Not looking for an exact number or anything just an estimate assuming things go relatively smoothly.

There are a lot of variables in deciding how long your car will be down. Will you pull the motor? Leave it in?
