    You must be real comfortable doing a head gasket, wiring vtec(if you plan on using dx wiring harness), and timing belts. please dont take your rotozip or dremel tool to your head unless your absolutely sure your ready or have practiced enough. if you use your non vtect dizy, you can turn it quite a bit further and get the mega pep you would like out of it, you would just need to cut a little into one of the holes and add a place for the other two bolt up. you would be verry happy with the advance.

    JUST TO CLARIFY
    Comfrotable With Head gaskets
    Comfortable with Timing Belts
    Comfortable with home PNP or a Pro Shop

    You may be happier with the same money into headders and a killer exhaust, unless your needing a rebuild...

    valve seals are gone and the rings are shot so i was thinking about a rebuild but i wanted to add vtec well i was at it also how do you think the cr will be to high or have i read wrong that the cr will be 12:1 or will it be lower with the p29s

    For the cost of rebuilding and the mini me swap you can do an Ls swap. B18a1s and OBD1 B18b1s are very cheap. I paid $800 for mine.

    considering they're all fairly easy why not do it? he'll get wayyyy more power out of the mini me than with a header and exhaust on the b7
    i dont think he'll have anywhere near that into it. he would still have to get a tranny, ecu, axles, etc.

    I'm running a mini me with a d16a6 bottom end stock, crank, bearings, rods with vitara low comp pistons, and a stock z6 head boosting 10 psi. I've been running this setup for 10 months no problems, I'm assuming that im at or around 190 hp, and around 150-60 ft lbs, assuming these numbers do to just by the way that I've pulled around 4 cars on lightly modded gti's, and other cars alike. Also other supporting mods are stage 3 xtd clutch, steelies with bfg drag radials, si trans =)
    ps. I blew my stock dx trans apart at my current level, doubt that speaks for anything though.
