B20/B16 Vtec

so has anyone done this to there ludes??? now i know what your gonna say from the bat and that its not possible with our stock 3GP blocks...this is true i know this much...something about the oil ports wont line up and the fact that the head is 5 degrees back vrs. forward... but i know you can use the CRV block and do this build, those franks will fit into a CRX... but i want to know i guess is what is the pro's and con's of this swap... i read that the biggest advantage of this swap is you get the B20 bottom end torque and the B16 high rpm horsepower... so naturally it would be a awesome setup...so mainly id just like to see what everyone else thought about them and if anyone on this board has done it before

I believe this is not uncommon in 90-94 integras to take to bottom of the LS b18 motor with the top of the b16 vtec one. Called an LS/VTEC conversion I have a 91 integra which is beat to hell now, looking for a 4th gen lude, but I frequented the Generation 2 integra club forums often, and their site has a write up on it.
I would post a link, but I have less than 15 posts

yes, www.g2ic.com is a fantastic forum.
If you are really curious about a CrVtec set up, check out www.b20vtec.com.
They have great writeups on doing ls/vtec hybrid swaps.

My friend has a ls/vtec in his 95 Integra matched with stock tranny.
It's fast man, strong hybrid power that shouldn't be underestimated.
