    what is the difference in the Vtech and non Vtech engines in the B18 series (B18A, B, C) engines? Is it just the head assembly and the parts connected to the head? What would I need to change the B18B1 to a Vtech set up? How hard would that be? Is it worth the effort?

    do a search on "ls vtec"
    you cannot convert a non vtec head to a vtec head, you must get one thats a b16, b18c head and install it on your block.
    id say its worth the effort.

    the diffrence is about 30 extra horsepower due to an internal switch from low cam profiles, to high cam profiles which allows the engine to produce more top end power...

    you need to swap the whole head, get a new ecu, wire it up, and run oil lines...
    and prob some other random things as well
