You can put a b-series vtec head on it and it will be fine for turbo. The problem comes with how you do. There are some precautions that you need to take care of before you decide to just slap on a head and call it a day. You gotta supply oil to the vtec head, buy the right dowel pins, use ARP GSR head studs, etc...

If I were you, I'd say screw it and turbo your LS straight up. If it breaks, well then do an LS/VTEC or just build up the LS block.

its pretty much a waste of time really. just turbo what you have. if you blow it up and want to build something real serious then put the head on it later. your turbo kit will still bolt up to the new head.

+1 headswap would be minimal gain for the effort.

Most of you guys are also forgetting that if he slaps a vtec head on, he has to first prep it. In which case, there still might not be sufficient enough oil. So it's best that he also switches over to a vtec oil pump, therefore making an ls/b20 vtec setup sufficient. And if he really wants to top everything off to make sure there's enough oil, he could slap on an OEM oil filter :P.

But after spending all that money, he still would have just the same amount of fun with just an ls-t setup.
