    After getting hit by a Ford F-250 who put his front tow hook through my headlight, hood and valve cover knocking the motor out of its mounts ( pulled the threads on the drivers mount), I have decided that since the motor needs to be pulled for repairs anyway, I can just as cheaply swap in a B18 block instead of fixing the vtec B16 block. I am looking at the Goden Eagle conversion kit. Is this the best route to take and is there anything special I need to know. Will my B16 header work or is the B18 taller and requiring a differant header? Any constuctive advice is appreciated. Time to get this baby back on the road and see 300k on the odometer, it is sitting at 299,732 right now.
