Asked by Sep 30, 2012 at 08:21 PM about the Honda Civic

Question type: Car Customization

I have a 90 civic hatchback with a d15b2
engine and was wondering if I can swap
thenon v Tec head out for a vtec head?an
what does it require?

1 Answer

1,675

called a mini-me swap: a new ecu with remapped fuel codes and a wiring that is for the vtec pressure switch and vtec solenoid (a6 and c15 ports on the ecu), different mounts, intake port, sensors... but for the head only: tougher gasket because a d15b vtec has a larger capacity for better compression... i think thats all you'll need...
