Well if it does work (which I don't know, just trying to help), you can just buy the y8 head, y8 intake manifold, y8 intake and the y8 ECU.

Honda-Tech has a DIY but I'm very lazy right now.

First off, your mini-me swap is different then every other common mini-me because you are not going from non vtec to vtec. I've never heard of anyone having to get a timing belt and water pump when they do their mini-me but you should look into it because it might be true.

From my understandings the only difference between the y5 head and y8 head are that the cams are different and the way VTEC works. If this is true then all you should need to do is get the y8 head, P2P ecu and you should be good to go. Your intake mani is the same as the y8 so don't worry about that.
