    See this thread.


    Also:

    B18b is non Vtec and B18c1 & B18c5 are Vtec.

    So a "B18" isn't exactly a real motor, it has more call numbers :)

    And yea, you already have Vtec (the B16y8).



    Yes it matters a lot. Superchargers create low end power (for less straight line racing) while turbos create top end power (for things like quarter miles..).

    Oh I know, but he would learn that if he read the reference section.
    Which I'm trying to point him towards.

    And it's Hexen. Not Hexan.. Why does everyone think it's Hexan?

    What the hell? It's not Hexan.
