That is probably the worst motor set up you could go with. Also it's spelled *vtec, there isn't an H on the end.

Properly done there should be no issues. Making 500+ on stock sleeves, and no problems. All about buying the right parts and being careful in your assembly, but that goes with everything.

Sorry, I was talking any sort of LS/VTEC reliability. Your oil supply, headgasket, proper tune, are all important when doing something like that. Base your bottom end work off of the mileage and abuse the LS bottom end has already been through. New bearings, rings, ARP rod bolts.

Is proper ls/vtec even worth it compared to a basic motor swap.

I should learn to be more clear when I talk. If done the right way (which nobody ever seams to do anymore) then it's a good motor. If you slap a b16 head on an LS block then no...it won't last.

correct

Doing a ls/v takes a while and is a long process. (i just did one) There is lots to consider like how high your going to rev it, Longevity, budget. I would throw budget out the there as it is nice to not worry when you rev to 8k LOL

Dont forget to add arp headstuds and rod bolts as they are not the strongest. if you buy eagle rods, then you can fit a better bearing and allow for better revving. but remember,a ls or a b20 block was not ment to rev that high... so look into balancing the crank also.

Ill let that info pick your brain some more

I'm currently building one too. Treat it just like every other important engine build, why put money into something that wont last? Here's some reference I've followed, 95% of this info has been proven with many builds.

Here's a listing of parts:

Hope that helps.

Alot of the problem resides in the R/S ratio, and those teeny tiny connecting rod bolts from factory. It'd be best to run a GSR girdle, but at that point you might as well do a full GSR swap

It's a good read
