can anyone help me?
I was told I can put a single overhead cam v-tec head on my non v-tec motor. My motor is a civic lx d16y7. and do I need to change my ecu and any thing else? second question is if it works will I have to worry about any problems with the motor and is it worth it will I gain any horse power I have some work done to my motor so far.
thanks for your time

yes you can do it ... its called a "mini-me"
yes you need to change your ECU... use a P28
yes it will give you more power... no there is no way to tell you how much... every setup is/will be different

do a search ... this gets covered about 47 times a day... there is plenty of info on it around here

i would deffinatly say get a B series .... what one is up to you (and your budget) B16A2, B18B1, B18C1
also i would suggest swapping to a manual tranny... that costs about $600 from what ive heard ... somone else will be able to help you more with this....
