    Well my head gasket is gone so thinking that because i have an b16a head sitting in the garage and my harness already has vtec splice from my d16 that i may as well do the head swap. Haven't done this before so wondering he there is anymore i need to do to complete this. I an running pr4. Do i need to swap ecu. Is it pretty much plug and play? Thanks any help is appreciated.

    You will need an ls/vtec conversion kit Golden Eagle VTEC Conversion Kit LS VTEC GSR B20 B18. If you still have the ecu from the original d16, you can get that chipped to run the ls/vtec correctly. Other than that, it should be plug and play. You will need a b16 intake manifold as well.

    99sidude is right about the IM. Your LS wont even line up. You should be able to use the fuel injectors (if they're OBD1 injectors).

    I have a JDM B16 Intake manifold and Throttle Body (b/c I needed USDM B16A3 IM) if you are in CA...we can work a price out.

    EDIT: Is the head complete? VTEC solenoid/oil pressure? Engine harness Plugs for them? You will need to run VTEC to the chipped ECU and shoudl get donor pins from a junk yard
