    Does anyone know how the handling would be on the B18C(IT-R) on a 97 DX? Is it going to be as front heavy as an H22?

    IT will be just like any b-series motor, they weigh all in the same ball park.

    No, it will not be like an H22, but even they aren't really too much of a problem with the propper suspension.

    You won't have any problems that you can notice, especially if you have to be asking this question. If you were an autocrosser, then you probably would notice a difference, but otherwise it will just feel like your D16, just with a lot more power.....

    i have a B18 in my sol ... it handles VERY well :)
    but i also have ass loads of suspension work done :)


    but to answer your question
    no
    a B18 will not have the negative effects on handling that an H series would
