i say do what you want to do. don't listen to anyone else. i'm using a ls head too on a sleeved b18a block . it should make plenty of power and you will like the amount of torque it has over the vtec head

Well, on some fairly mild (~400whp) non-sleeved setups, I've seen stock b16 heads pick up around 60 whp over stock LS heads. I'd say that the increase in power would grow exponentially as you start to make more power since flow becomes even more of an issue. I highly doubt that the head work on that LS head will net that kind of a gain.

Don't forget rev limit issues with the LS head. It might be capable of alot of high end flow and that turbo could be spooled out also... you won't be able to rev as high due to the valvetrain limitations. You might have springs for it... but that rocker design isn't happy way up and alot of power. (this is what I've gathered... take it with a grain of salt).

Comparing a stock vtec head to a stock novtec ,,obvioulsy get the vtec head for more power,higher revs,better flowing,etc.....But comparing a fully built ported out nonvtec head to a stock vtec head? you better just use that head you got,,you'll make great numbers with it....what cams do you have in mind?
hey the vtec head, preferrable the b16 since it flows better. then you get the vtec killer rocker arm setup and some nice big vtec cams. this should be the most hp gain from a b-series head. this would make it like a LS but with vtec ALWAYS on.
or since you already got the LS head done up you should get some nice aftermarket LS cams. this way you will be able to really feel the gains from your built head. the stock LS cams will do alright but will not pull as hard, especially at the top end.
