Okay so I'm somewhat of a "n00b" still because I didn't look for any stickys on the form about changing heads. I have a y7, but I've got a y8 motor. Instead of swapping the whole motor, I thought maybe I'd just put the vtec head on the motor thats in there now. I guess I'm asking 2 questions:

Should I just swap the entire motor?
And how would I go about swapping the heads? Someone wanna help? thx!

Which of the two motors is in better condtio? I would pick the one with the least miles/less problems. Around here a head swap like that and engine swap like that go for the same price so i would just swap the y8 engine.

well, what are the plans for the bottom end? i mean if you plan on doing a bottom end build, then yes, might as well since it is going to have to come off, and you could use the boost in power on the y7. however, if all you plan on doing is running the y7 till it dies, and swapping in the y8, you should just wait and swap in the whole y8. just my .02
