Default LSV in teg

Im picking up a 90 teg tomorrow to use as a winter car untill i get my new truck. Car is in pretty good shape for its age, just a bit of surface rust and still has original one piece headlights in perfect workong condition. The shell has 250,000 miles with a newer b18a1 with a little over 100,000. I wanna go LSV after i get my truck and im not driving this everyday. Been out of imports for a while and i dont know any good shops that would do the work or where to even start getting good parts. I was thinking about just buying another motor and having it totally rebuilt the way i want it. Any leads and ideas would be great. Thanks guys!

I built mine just recently. I did all my machine work at Harveys in Norwalk. He did good work for a good price. Everyone has thier own personal choice for machine shops. As far as the right people to assemble or advise on the build, I'd contact Sean or Eric at Central Imports. They've been building some extensive Honda builds since I knew them in highschool.


Got any pictures?

Just buy a GSR motor to swap in it and save yourself some time and money to get a better more reliable outcome.

^^ Nobody does LSV right anymore. That's a thing of the past that kids now these days think is just a myth and 90-95% of people into hondas don't know how to properly do lsv.

Lsv is just a bad combo. Nobody does it right anymore plus kids slap a head on it and instantly think they can rev to 9k not knowing that the ls has such a low redline because the bottem end cant handle it.
