If I were goin to build a xx/vtec I'd go LS.
Especially if you are keeping stock sleeves.
You give up a little bit of displacement, but you have thicker (ie: stronger) cylinder walls.)

How would you have thicker cylinder walls from a smaller displacment engine?

b18 and b20 have the same stroke. (89mm)
b18 bore is 81mm
b20 bore is 84mm
bigger bore means the area between the cylinders is going to be thinner, hence the b18 having thicker cylinder walls.


I really thought this would be common sense....really if you have any idea of how engines and displacement works, and a slight idea of the Honda line up, you should have figured this out.
Am I being a dick? probably, but it seems that any, even semi half almost technical question I answer, someone wants to questioin me.
