    Long story short,It's when you put a Vtec head on a non Vtech block.

    I was considering putting a vtec head on my d16a1, but was told that it is more money/machining than the power gains are worth. dunno, maybe someone else heard differently.

    there is no machine work required in the head swap.
    the only modification to the motor/head required is to pull 1 oil squirter out of the block's deck.

    type "mini-me" into the search bar, here and on honda-tech. you'll find out everything you need to know.
