    Yeah i had a post about 97 b16a turbo ek hatch vs 95 b18b1 turbo eg coupe and nobody posted in it. Finding out the ek hatch is about 88lbs heavier. I just decided to go with that. Hatches are the shit---

    The engine bay is virtually the same between the two styles. As far as getting the IMPORTANT bits in (all the stuff under the hood), there is no difference.

    If it's a B20 VTEC then it should already have VTEC. If it doesn't, then it's just a B20, which is basically an LS with .2 more liters of displacement...
