    what's a vtec head cost, like 200 bucks or so?

    you'd be way better off saving your money to get a new motor, dude.

    Trust me, patience pays off. Go all the way or don't go at all.

    save up, start with a nice 1.8 vtec block and go from their, it will cost less to run quick in the long run.

    just go to the dealership and ask for 4qts of VTEC fluid thats all you really need

    its about $15 per Qt

    there might be places to get it online .... i havent really looked around too much though

    well man i think a all motor 1.5l is pretty dope so if i were you I would get a d16z6 or d16y8 head. so go find a D16z6 or y8 head. complete with intake manifold, throtle body, all sensors, distributor, and what not. Then do an MPFI swap, if you get a y8 manifold sell the dizzy or trade for an OBD0 or OBD1 dizzy and then decide what OBD you are going to run, 0 or 1. it is a fairly cheap swap to do it will just take a lot of wiring work. people will claim it is a lot, and in a way it is, but it is not that hard, or it is not as hard as everyone claims it is.
    good luck...
