“One thing leads to another, everything must work in harmony to have the best gains possible.”
those that build their motors and search for optimum gains will understand exactly what i’m talking about.
because of that, there is no set price, and there is nothing “stock” about an LSvtec. If you are starting from zero, meaning you have absolutely nothing except a DA, with a stock B18a in it, consider roughly $3k for a decent build; thats if you build it once and don’t decide to change something after you seal the motor up and drop it in your car. The motor itself is only half the battle and perhaps half the budget. you’ll need everything else that supports it to optimize it FOR YOUR GOALS.
thats the best advice i can give you.
this is my 1.8L lsvtec, still running strong after 5 years
