    ok so my question is basically if i were to get a valve cover from something like the b18c1/5 would i be able to just bolt ir ight on to my b18a1 head or would i need the entire head? searched but wasnt able to find any real thread answering my question so i decided this would be faster.

    thanks for the help and input.

    The VTEC and non-VTEC valve covers are NOT interchangeable.

    And, why would you want to do this in the first place? Adding a VTEC valve cover to a non-VTEC head isn't going to magically give it VTEC... :shrug:
