Swap the V-Tec head and get a V-tec ecu. Read Mini Me conversion to get an idea. It's the same concept except that you have dual cams.

huh? like, put in an LS, then swap on a VTEC head? if its DOHC, its called frankenstein, its only called mini-me if its SOHC. but a full DOHC swap is a better engine, and a better idea.
