riceburner700 is swapping a y8 head onto a d15 (i think), so i'm pretty sure its possible. The swap you are tlaking about (swapping headers/ECUs to get VTEC) is called a mini-me swap. Google it or use Search at the top here on HCF. You'll find lots of info about it. It's quite common and if done correctly can give you some good power.
