with the y8 and high hp you will have a little bit better daily driveability, but with the y7 you can have an extreme cam with high lift that will makes lots of hp, but will suck on the bottom end. if you do the vtec you can get a cam that will allow you to have nice low end torque and high end hp.

so do you want a nice daily go with the vtec head, but if you want to just drag then keep the y7 and build it for a big turbo.

If it was my case, I'll keep y7 head. weld combustion chamber, mill lil bit, port, agressive cam, spring retainer, intake, bigger tb, headers and more... You can reach nice number with a setup like that :) maybe more if you want to go turbo, or nitrous...

If you want really hardcore setup, but you will loose much streetability and gaz efficiency, go for y7, there is a plenty of potentiel, I think you can get really hot cam than vtec ones, less valvetrain and device around head, easier to tune, really nice if you go on track or if you home to works or school is a 1/4 miles. I realy like lumpy idle who wants to stall every rotation, it really intimidate...

If you want best of both world, vtec is the key, but little bit $$$, and big cam for them are less bigger than y7 you can make regrind.

keep non-vtec man, tuning is wayyyy easier, in my case i stuck with the a6 head and never went vtec and tuning was a breeze b/c or no vtec to work around
