    B16? Try either a Del-Sol VTEC cap, or maybe one from a GSR?

    Try checking the pn on the distributor and check with the honda dealer to see which application it's from. Since you tried the two b16 caps, it's probably the gsr one, but I never really thought the caps were very different. You learn something new everyday.
