      is it possible to convert honda city 1.3 type 2 to a 1.3 vtec?

      Hello Guys,

      i have a honda city 1.3 type 2 2003 model and i am looking to get it converted to a vtec by keeping the engine same to 1.3 (1346 cc). so pls do let me know whether it is possible or not? if the answer is "YES" then how much will it cost and i wanted to get it turbocharged as well.

      can anybody tell me who is the best person to do this work in bhopal or indore?

      Thank All...

      Welcome to GH and enjoy your stay here.

      To answer your question - Yes its possible.

      We have a lot of people who come here with such questions... but a lot of them are frivolous in nature and soon the thread goes to toonland! So if you want coherent answers, please tell us a lot more about yourself and the current sate of your ride, what exactly you find lacking in your ride and what you are trying to achieve (0-100, in gear acceleration or top speed - all require different approaches). Also state the amount of money you are willing to spend. You will find participation increasing when readers realise you are serious about your pursuit.

      Yes. It is possible to swap a VTEC head. And it is so common in JDM that they even have a term for such an engine. Just google for "Mini me VTEC" and you will find lot of threads.
      007 has such a build on his 1.3 OHC. But he has pretty much worked on it himself. Not sure if it can be done in bhopal or Indore.

      Yes. It is very much possible.

      A lot of time and money. It took me 2 years to do all my research and implementation. If you want to take the quick route, you will need a complete VTEC head with distributor, engine bay wiring harness, interior wiring harness and ECU.

      Nobody. I seem to be the only person on the planet who has seen a 1.3 VTEC conversion through from start to finish.

      Then why do you want a Vtec in the first place itself? The amount of time and money you spent on taking that route and getting very minimalistic gains, you could turbo your existing 1.3 Honda and kick some serious butt!

      Thanks for your great reply, basically my budget is around 1L ( with turbo installation if possible ) and i just want to take out some more power out of my ride by keeping the fuel consumption same. i am looking for a 0 - 60 boost

      actually i took a test drive of a honda city vtec and since then i am dreaming about a vtec car, but i love my ride a lot and so i dont want to sell it, hence looking for a vtec upgrade..
