Question Adding a vtec in a B20 motor.

Is that I can add a vtec in a b20 motor by just install a vtec head, such as b18c head or b16a2 head on it?

Any people do this already?

How much for all those parts for adding a vtec?

Do i have to change a vtec ecu or i can get another stuff to activite the vtec?

How many hp and tou will increase?

Is it durable?

After all its just simple "bolt-on" thing right?

Locate the search button and do some research.

And to that comment about the "tcc guys":
I shouldn't take offence to that but I do. There are a alot of knowledgeable and helpful people on this board, so I'd watch whose feet your stepping on with the comment. Just a heads up.

B20B pistons are not competible with VTEC valves, so it is not a bolt-on affair. For one, the pistons need to be changed.

You can make power in non-VTEC form, there are aftermarket performance cams for it.

why waste time tampering with electrical things when you can just install a DOHC V-TAK sticker in under 5 seconds with the same results?

I wouldn't call a newb with 4 posts a TCC guy. Instead of being a smart ***, why don't you try to help him.

I think he is misreading the sarcasm in your post Matt. Obviously his engrish is not so good. I think even the biggest newb knows there is no such magic vtec chip.

If everyone knows squat, then feel free to educate all of us with your vast pool of knowledge and help answer the original questions.

what about the "secret vtec" on y7 engines that engages when you take it up to >6000RPM, release the clutch, rev it up, then engage the clutch back?!?!?!?!
