    its really not worth it in that car.... just swap the head onto your B18.... keep the torque, get the VTEC, youll be happier with this setup

    (unless your in Cali... then you cant do a head swap :( )

    The B16a is agood powerplant for the DA chassis. Thats why Honda put it in the 89-92 XSi and RSi Itegra in japan. I have a first gn B16's wit simple bolt on's and i've beatten G3 GSR's with this set up and i am very happy. If yo have an questions about the swap just ask me but you do need a J1, YS1, or S1 trany with this motor if noyou won't be happy with the LS trany and the B16 it wil fal out of VTEC every time youshift even when yu shift it at 8,000 rmp's. I did a J1 swap into my fred's 90 Integra LS with a B17 today. The car moves with the B17 and te B16 trany i can't wait to race hm and see what happens.

    Because you can't smog it legally.

    Beaten the B18C1?? I'll believe that if you are boosted or they can't drive. The C1 has much more torque than the B16. I would say that it is not a good power plant for the DA, because it only lasted 2 years in Japan. Then they went to the 1.8l engine.

    Okay, so it was there 3 years, big deal. How many years did the B18C run? At least 7. They dropped the B16 for the B18C because the B16 is a torqueless wonder.
