Legend Heads

I know there has been some discussion about if whether or not the heads off of a newer Legend will fit our cars. I did try searching but nothing came up. So, could someone tell me if the Legend VTEC heads will fit on our cars? If so, what year legend, how hard would it be, how much would it cost, and what kind of gains would it bring? I know that is a lot of questions, but if someone could answer any of them it would be greatly appreciated.

search if you want to but I'm pretty sure that the issue has been discussed on the old board and they don't fit.

wait a sec, are you now saying the c32 heads dont fit either? I thought this was already resolved. The c32 heads fit and they are not vtec. But still a big improvement none the less.

The intake manifold will fit too, right? The Legend's intake manifold kicks ass cuz it's got a 3-stage variable induction system that gives the C32 an almost flat torque curve from 3,000-4500rpm.

it'll be hard to find but the best bet, is try to find a honda scap yard. or even just a regular junk yard. I know they have junk yards stickly for imports, so try that first.

its gonna cost ya though, make sure you have the VISA with you

Would the heads have to be off of a certain year and car, or does it not matter , as long as it's a C32?

I used to be on the Legend forums. Good people. I also used to belong to the legend.org and I still visit there from time to time. In fact, I was just on there and there's a guy selling 1991-1995 Legend parts including C32 parts.
