Here is what I learned.

If I want it to not throw codes, I have to purchase the intake manifold also. This little swap is starting to become more and more expensive by the minute. I could use the experience of the head swap though...I need to research more on the electrical aspect still.
Let me just say this: Take your time.

Spend the next few weeks/months researching your options. Use it to search for parts and to ask others to search for parts with you. If you post a list of parts you need most of us will keep an eye out at the junkyards and will usually get you the part for cost.

Hell, I have two extra exhaust manifolds for these vehicles in my basement right now. I can also be on the lookout for a smaller intake manifold (VX/CX/HX) in the event you need one.

Haha, don't worry about it

Haha, don't worry about it too much. We make fun of each other over here but it's not like honda-tech,

How's the search for parts?
