It was definitely a "drop in" but as in the SR20DE to SR20DET the bitch is in the details (wiring).
I don't want to recommend somebody at JUN as I have found them to be evasive and a bit nebulous.
I never spoke to JUN about getting just the head. I think Speedlab could look around for you. Some of engine importers may also be a good start (SOKO, Perez, etc).
I've been dealing with JWT on the Turbo/other mods that are going on now.
I think a lot of people expect way too much from this motor w/a turbo. But if you really want to go full on NA, its a great route. I could easily see 220-240hp with the proper mods.
To get in that hp range though, I can't stress this enough, you have to be SERIOUS. This is not a low buck option. If you want to spend $10 on your car, get an air freshener. If you want to at least get in the rearview mirror of the Skunkworks Integra you have to step up.
If you just want the VE head plopped on your DE block I don't think its worth it. There are other options that will get you the same power. The JWT cams alone would get you most if not all the way. The VE is a great foundation to START with.
