I'm pretty sure mini-me swaps are worth around 20hp or so, so I'd say they're worth it. Unfortunately, many people (who don't have vtec ) claim that vtec is just another thing that can need fixing. Actually, now that I think about it, the only people I ever hear complaining about all the troubles of vtec are the people that don't have vtec.

I'm not 100%, but I think you'd want a D16Z6 head.

I'm not really big on the mini-me swaps (since I already have a vtec motor), so consequently I don't know much about them, but I think the head is really the only thing you need. I'm not sure if the head would come with the vtec solenoid or what... I'd say try searching for a parts list... I'll see if I can't dig something up for ya.

Okay, so I was a bit off on what you'll need... it would seem I oversimplified the whole mini me swap thing... this link should help http://www.jdmuniverse.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=32971
