Probably but if I was you I'd phone the dealership and talk to the customer service rep and ask them. You could talking to engine rebuilds and installers too.Plus you might be able to get it from a do it yourself auto wreckers and some offer all you can carry out for a flat low cost too. Hope that helps and best of the way before buying or installing that other engine I highly suggest you do research this bec it could be that you need more then just the main comp replaced too.

No you need to get the ecu for that engine so vtec can work.

The Vtec engine has extra sensors that tell you ECU how to best utilize the VTEC. So point blank if your current car doesn't have VTEC you'll need a new ECU, along with some engine harness additions
