Well you can put a vtec head on a non vtec block its called a "mini-me" and is a decent way of increasing power on a budget, but you are still left with a crappy tranny and small displacement.
And for what it would cost for parts and such you could just put a d16z6 (si) engine and tranny in and be done with it. Or save up a bit for a b-series swap.
Doesn't the vx come with a factory wideband o2?

Yep. 5 wire as opposed to the common 4 wire.

yes well i would resurface the head or mill it a little to raise the compression up a bit. Are you using the SI intake manifold, injectors and throttle body too?
Wouldn't putting a z6 head on a z1 block give you a really low compression?
