    It will bolt right up to any b-series block. The only catch is if its already a vtec block or not. If its a vtec block then just bolt up. If not, you'll have to get the head tap and run a oil line for vtec( ls/b20 blocks)

    among other things, like upgrading oil/water pumps and the dowel pins must be switched.

    Periods (.) do wonders in sentance comprehension. I was trying to understand what you were asking to see if i could give you a hand, but I am completely lost. Good luck with your motor though.

    Normally if they were stock, you would use the head studs originally for your block. I'm not to sure if I would in this case..
