    I have a 93 1.5 civic engine. Can I put a 1.6L Vtec head on this block and use P28 ECU? Will this work in my car which is alredy pre wired for Vtec in a 94 hatch? What else would I have to do and how much more power will it give me? Taking out B16 and need a cheap motor with decent power, so thought I'd use this 1.5L i had kickin' around:)

    For that rewire your horn button on your steering wheel to activate your vtec!

    Yeah, it was a joke! I tired it and it didn't work to well. Gave a CEL every time I pushed it...it did kick in, but it didn't like being on.
