Default D15b?

Got a d16y7 right now, how hard would a d15b VTEC swap be? Would it be worth it? Its got aout 130 hp and VTEC, which is a little improvement over my I/H/E y7....si would it be worht it? And can it be done by just swaping the longblocks/ECU?

idk....engine has 140K almost so just seems like its gettin up there in miles. Would a mini-me make it last longer?

140K is nothing for a honda...run a compression test and see what you get.

it's kind of a lot of work for minimal gains, mini-me would be cheaper and easier, and it's not like you're going to find a super-low-mileage D15B anyway

Not at all, just make sure your compression is good, and get it tuned properly.
