What BO does not say is that this is not economic. Much cheaper to sell yours and buy the dohc which your insurers will not class as a highly modified car and require brake and suspension upgrades and inspection reports before charging you a huge premium to cover.

both answers are right. If you're still Gung Ho about it, You'll need engine, transmission, axles, ECU and VTEC wiring harness (if engine is VTEC). Better brakes and upgraded suspension is recommended (not required) too.
