    Dude, dont go for a b18b they are pointless. to much work and money for a small increase in performance. go b18a from 90-91 teg, much easier and almost equal power.

    difference between the b18a and b18b
    Code:
    --b18a--                  --b18b--
    
    head:
    lesser agressive cams       slightly more agressive cams
    very gay intake manifold      kinda gay IM
    obd 0 or 1 depending on year  obd1 or 2 depending on year
    
    block:
    identical for the most part.... slight differences possibly in compression of pistsons or head gasket thickness... im not sure
    
    tranny:
    cable                    hydrolic
    slightly different mount point for each as well
    
    moral- get a b18a. it will plug right in a lot easier

    you could put a/c on it but you need a bracket. if you need a a/c bracket let me know cause I have an extra one. email me.

    i love how the b18a has a "very gay intake manifold" as opposed to the b18b's "kinda gay intake manifold"
