    Ive got a B18 with the s1 tranny in my 1989 crx,
    and a B18 with a blown head gasket with an A1 tranny in a 91 integra,
    and i just bought a B16 with an LX tranny with the computer,
    and i dunno what i wanna do with it.
    i know i want to keep my S1 tranny in my crx.
    but, i dunno if i wanna put the B16 in my integra or the crx.
    or if i should put the good B18 in the integra and then take the B18
    with the blown head gasket and put the B16 head on it to make a
    frankestine motor.
    im just askin opinions on what to do here.
    i want the crx to the a fast kinda street racing car..
    cause its already stripped down with a roll cage..
    but i also want the inegra to be quick.. but itll be
    a more everyday car..

    its not lsvtecH its vtec..and to build it right you need the conversion dowels,the right headstuds,the right gasket and a proper way to oil the head.also the right tune...you shoulf upgrade the rod bolts to accomodate higher revs,but its not a must

    what conversion dowels?
    what all would i need to buy, or get done to put the vtech head on the b18?
    would i need the head gasket for the B16 or b18?
    and rod bolts, what kind? ive got the computer off the b16,
    is that the right tune?
    or different computer needed?
