    I have only done a little searching, but i am asking for some quick helpful tips.
    I have the D15B8 non-vtec, and just bought a JDM D15 vtec. I am getting ready to start the swap, but I have a few questions concerning it. Here we go

    1. Will most of the sensors swap over?
    2. Do I need a new wiring harness and ecu?
    3. Can i just hook up and run a Vtec line, and have my ECU flashed by Honda?
    4. Will my stock 5spd tranny transper to my new engine?

    Sorry for the noobie questions, but this is my first swap, and going from 70hp, to 130hp is going to be crzy. Thanks for you help

    Counterstrike RULES!!!!!!!!
