Default 97 civic lx vtec help

I put a Vtec in my 97 lx,
Im not sure what year the head came from but im thinking its from a 95

The distributor dont fit!!! can i just buy a 95 distributor and switch out the plugs?

Also i read that there is a oil injector in the block that i should have took out when doing a mini me swap is this true?

Good thing for the edit option!! Anyway back on topic..

The old head was bad so i got the 95?96? vtec, The distributor is to big,, If i get the right distributor for this head can i re-wire the distributor plug?

I have the gray all in one plug [97],, i think i need to wire in the dual plug type [older].

The wire colors are the same it's just the coil has its own 2 wire plug..
