    I'm not exactly a pro at this stuff, but I have a question. Is it possible to replace the stock F22A1's SOHC head with an H-series VTec DOHC head? Or should I just take the same amount of time doing that and slam an H22 where the old engine used to be? Oh, and p.s. I don't know much; if my post seems a little flakey, that's why.

    Almost not possible. The head and block aren't the same shape, and this requires massive amounts of money to make it work. Probably 4-5 times the cost of what it would take to swap in an H22.

    It's been done. These guys did it. But they advise against doing it, because it's not worth the time and cash.

    Yes, it has been done. Use an H22.
