    Hi I am thinking of buying a 96 or 98 civic cx/dx. I was wondering can I take the vtec head from a 93 civic si and put it on. If so what type of wiring and converting do I need to do?

    both d series...go for it, you'll have to get a vtec ecu....then tap the oil pan so your vtec can actually work a couple other things here and there....
