    It can be done.

    I'm not sure what it does to the compression. I believe it stays the same, but don't quote me on that.

    You'd need, at the very least, the complete head, intake manifold, VTEC water pump, POSSIBLY a VTEC crank pulley, VTEC timing belt, VTEC computer.

    After all is said and done and paid for, you'll see about a 10 horsepower (to the flywheel, not wheels) gain. Maybe a few foot pounds of torque as well.

    Why not double what you spend and get a 65 horsepower increase with 25 extra foot-pounds of torque?

    As usual, he's right. I have done a headswap on a F series. It is easy out of the car, but it would be a lot harder in the car. I spent $80 on a headgasket, and I fabricated my own intake gasket. The exhaust is reusable copper. Shitload of work for little gain. Instead, use boost, NOS, change the cam, add a header, or just buy a better engine. A F22B(jdm) or H23 would be a easy swap, and not too hard on the wallet.
    That's the rizzle on the dizzle Seany-izzle. :p

    Thanks for the confidence. I don't know about "as usual"....maybe 90% of the time. :D
