how easy would it be to change the cam head on a ep1 engine to give it VTEC? what would need to be done and is it easy enough for me to do? (novice) or would i be better getting a garage to do all the work?

also what about upgrading the brakes, i think id do that before adding VTEC!

any help will be appreciated!!!

there probably isnt going to be a head available to fit on, and if the older d series engines fit you would need a remap with standalone ecu as your car is on coil packs and the older d series have distributors. it would cost a lot, probably wont fit and you wont get any more power.

would be worth saving the money and buying a faster car or doing a whole engine swap. which also wouldnt be worth it as you could probably sell the car and buy a ep3 for the same money as doing an engine swap
