    You'll get maybe 10 horsepower if you did that. Reeeaaaaaallllllly not worth the time and effort IMO.

    There MAY be differences in the coolant passages. I KNOW you'll have to run an external oil line like you do with an ls/vtec.

    It's feasible, but not practical. Why would you want to spend a thousand dollars or more to get a worthless single-cam VTEC head on your bottom end? The money is better spent elsewhere.
