It would probably be easier to swap the engine. VTech doesn't make THAT much a difference where it's worth the money though.

you can add the VTEC head but it takes work cause the dont bolt on directly , its just easier to swap it out and going LS/VTEC makes it unreliable if it isnt done right and the timimg is always off

the block has NOTHING to do with VTEC. VTEC is Honda's variable valve timing technology. Valves are in the cylinder head, cams are above the heads in overhead cam engines. Swapping in a VTEC block doesn't give you VTEC. I like EJ1s as well but if you want to do any sort of engine swap or conversion make it a B18C swap.
