LS Integra vs GTS

Well, the turbo is off the car...After some very very long debating, I decided to pick up an all motor build. Car has never felt so slow, As it stands its just a jdm b18c with ctr cams mated to a b16 tranny (solid mid to low 14 second car). This is basically my engine as it stands minus the turbo. Did a compression test and got good results 250 across the board. Not bad for an engine that saw boost daily over 400 whp at one point. Now I had always wanted to race a GTS in a N/A b series because I hear often how monsterous they are in comparison to a NA b series. I ran into a very nice looking red GTS (one of the few without the hideous factory body kits) at a gas station. We talked for a bit (nice guy) and I asked him what's done to the 2zz, all the bolt ons pretty much and a tune (assuming PFC??). He didnt have any times but I asked him if he wanted to give the teg a go one time. He sees the boost guage and crome running in the car, I assure him its no longer boosted, and he says Ok. We take it to a very deserted , basically boondocks side of town road. He wants a roll (I want a dig). We agree to 3 runs, one dig , one 20 mph roll, and one 60 mph roll. From the dig he jumps out (Ima newb and still think Im driving a boosted car that cant be launched at 6k, so I launch at my usual 3.5k on the road). By 70 I start passing him and put about car and half between me and him by 100. 20 roll was worse by 100 i had a solid 2 cars. 3rd roll was supposed to be 60 to 120, but the guy said good races he didnt care for a third roll. We swapped numbers and I told him to keep in touch because I wanted to invite him to track day in Georgia when we went

I didn't say power was decreased, I said PEAK of power. As in peak RPM that max HP is made. Where a stock B16 usually dyno max HP around 7800 (even though Honda spec sheet say 7600) LSVTEC usually makes it max HP around 7300, and B20VT at 7K flat. Displacement shifts the powerband down in the RPM range. what you get in torque, you lose top end. You can never have your cake and eat it...TQ or max RPM...
Actually, you shift where peak power is made by way of the head...IM packaging, Cam packaging, given the bottom end has the supplemental static cr to support the Cams and IM, Mathematically you shift where peak torque/power is made by way of the above mentioned parts. Once again I can lay down the dyno's as well as the dynamics equations of the b20 vtecs making top end power quite well beyond 7k...Its just a matter of you asking for it

I need more info on that LS. LS's run 16's, right where EG and EK Civic EX coupes run.
Its an LS Integra... ONLY mods are swiss cheese air box with no filter and a catback.... [email protected]
yeah :thumbdown I was expecting a true LS non-vtec.. not a swapped B18C. misleading. Oh well.

Props for the 70mph+ wins, too bad it wasn't on a real quarter mile to see exactly what you two would have ran.
