    It will work, but there are several modifications that you'll have to do so it works right. Here is a link with VERY DETAILED instructions on how to do EVERYTHING. I hope it helps bro. I just finished mine and it runs good. I'ved decided to upgrade my cams to eother ITR or CTR (Just need to get spring and retainers)/ B20/VTEC Build up Guide - Honda, Acura Tech Website, tutorials, tuning and HOW-TO's. Drag racing, street racing, road racing - C-speedracing.com
    Good luck! Let us know how it turns out. POST SOME PI"CS!!!!;-)

    well if you have the spare heads just swap the head and keep rolling. If you want to spend a few more bucks on parts and labor for some more hp then do the LSvtec swap.

    it's not an easy swap to do but it is fun to drive depending on the parts you use.
