    I have an 87' Integra with a stock d16 engine and a1 tranny. I wanted to know if I could put a v-tec head on it, like a b16.

    No b series head will bolt onto a d series. You'd have to use a sohc vtec head like a z6 or y8.

    Would using a sohc v-tec increase my horse though?

    it's not that vtec adds power, it helps spread it out over a broader rpm range. vtec motors also seem to have better aftermarket support.

    to use a z6 head, you could probably get away with your stock intake manifold and an odb0 vtec ecu. I don't know exactly what you'd need, but there are sites out there that show how to build it. Just try searching for "mini-me swap" or something to that effect. you're going to find a lot of info about putting a z6 or y8 head on a d15, but the process is basically the same.

    b series head will def not bolt on, and a SOHC vtec head will not bolt onto a DOHC d series block... at least thats what my research has lead me to understand...
