    you have a b20 in it, swap for a b16 head and hook up the vtec. much cheaper and more torque. no replacement for displacement.

    HEY THANKS PISSED SOL I HAVE DONE THE LS VTEC BEFORE AND HAD NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS SEEM TO EAT UP OIL PUMPS AND THEY HAVE PROBLEMS SPINNING BEARINGS SO I WAS JUST WONDERING IF ANY ONE HAS DONE A VTEC SWAP ON A CRV I KNOW I CAN USE MY TRANNY BECAUSE IT IS A B SERIES
    I JUST THINK IT WOULD BE COOL TO KICK ASS IN A CRV
    AND CAN YOU JUST SEE THE LOOK ON PEOPLES FACE WHEN A CRV PASSES THEM AND THEY HEAR VTEC KICK
    LOVE IT :D
