    if i am not mistake all a b17 is is a stroked b16 so im pretty sure the head is the same casting so i dont think there would be any benefit for you to swap the head on a smaller bottom end so stick with the b17 and i would use the 94-95 gsr ecu so u would need to go to obd1 which is not at all difficult the obd0 to obd1 harness should include wiring for the vtec. correct me if i am wrong on any of the above info
