You have an EX and it's not VTEC? That really suprises me, even though I don't have a 5th gen.

if you have the f22b head thats a dohc dont get rid of it, you will get more power out of that then you will a vtec head, just change your cams

why shouldn't he switch it, a dohc vtec is so much better than a dohc non-vtec

His motor responds tremendously well to boost, which is what he should do if he wants some more power. Plus I think some DSM parts will fit (manifold). Putting a VTEC head on it would be a waste of money.

lol...dohc vtec is not better for gas economy. If its a dohc vtec motor its usually a performance oriented motor. Hence why everyone uses them as race engines.
