What about a LS/VTEC Turbo?

LS+turbo...then if you're set on an LS/VTEC set up you can build a spare LS block and make the set up that much "safer"...whatever that means.

just boost the piss out of it. build the internals up a little bit and get a decent engine/fuel management and rip shit up.

I say LS-Turbo. But I am sort of turbo crazy. I have heard bad things and good things about LS-VTEC, but right out of the box the LS-Turbo will be much faster. If you have the money, go for both - just make sure you do it right either way.

depends what you want man. LS/VTEC "the poor man's type-r engine." YOu get respect for doing it right. n/a-Allmotor type respect. And no turbo lag.

But you could always get LS/turbo. Simple. Easily. Probably safer. still....your boosting.....Forced Induction......why not jsut spray nos....
