    Alright I got a 94 civic coupe ex gonna put a b20 in with a gsr head in the car. Probably a gsr or ls tranny. Could I just use a gsr ecu and not have to do shit to the ecu right away? Would I have to change the wiring in the car? Or would the stock wiring thats already in the car work?

    alright cool. Umm I know the block is going to need to be tapped for vtec line and what not but does anything else need to be done? Head gasket? Head need to be raised? I had heard someone else says something about maybe doing that but not sure bout that.

    If you pull the head to put the new one on then you need to replace the head gasket.

    Not a problem. I would recommend the Buddy Club gasket if you want my suggestion. Great company, good price (only like $15 more than OEM) and it raises compression ratio slightly.
