Is buying a D17A2 vtec head all i need to convert my LX engine to EX and get it to the EX stock 127hp???
Or do i need to buy anything else to make the install work? Im thinking of finding the part in a junkyard and changing it on my car, then adding stage 1 camshafts (and maybe valvetrain kit + pistons and Apexi S-AFC2)
I think doing this will add some serious gains. If the head is all i need i will have 12hp more and then another 8 or so w/stage 1. Thats 20 on top of the basic i/e/p set-up i have now.

what do you guys think>?
