    What are you starting with?

    All you really need is the head, ECU, timing belt, VTEC oil pressure switch plug, and add a couple of wires. Anywhere from $150-$350 for everything depending on who and where you get stuff from..

    Now aday its pretty cheap to do it, 1000-3000. Its possable and not to hard to do ( if you have the rite tools).

    It's nowhere near $1000 unless you buy new OEM parts from the dealership(like the head, etc.) Just ballpark figures: A complete VTEC head can be had for about $200 or even less, and about $100 for a ECU(P28). If you look in the right places, you can find complete SOHC VTEC motor swaps for like $300-$500.

    Search your local salvage yards and ebay for a complete head and a ecu. Definetly consider a valve job at the least to insure you have something fresh to work with.

    If it was that easy, don't you think there'd be a bunch of companies making adapter plates?

    I believe someone already did it(or maybe that was a F-series?). Lets just say he regretted it.
