    But not as good as an EX

    It'll probably be cheaper to just swap in a D16Z6 than to try to mod a VTEC-E motor. Yes, it does have roller rockers but it primarily operates on 3 valves per cylinder then opens the 4th valve at....ummm hell I forgot, something like 4K rpm.

    I used to work with a kid who put a JDM D15B VTEC in his CRX-HF and I thought it was a helluva fun car. A D16Z6 VX should be similar
