    ok WOW its researching time. first off the motor you are looking for is more than likely a b18c1, which would be found in the acura section because most of them came out a 94+ integra gsr. so there is your solution if you want to keep the 1.8 DOHC vtec. if you upgraded to the 2.2 which is a h series motor then yes you would need all new axles and an ecu and some other stuff. idk where you got the rwd conversion because the f20c is the only motor around that is rwd and it came out of an S2000. do some researching man there is lots to learn here. any help just let me know.

    yes it is a b18c motor sorry i did not say that, ''blown'' means that my block is cracked and my pictons are probably bent to shit. as for my motor situation yes i would like a b18c but there expensive as shit, so if you know where i can get a good for cheap plaese let me know im also looking at a b16 engine what the difference between the b18 and b16?

    .2 litres is the obvious one, but the B18 makes just a little bit more power.

    If your car had a B18C in it previously all that you would need to do is take it out and put the B16 in.

    To a garage. Pull the head off, and see how badly it's damaged.


    Any engine is reusable, it's just a matter of how much money you want to spend. Remember, it's just metal.

    Is that an aftermarket intake manifold? If it isn't, you got a b16... not a B18c(1)

    Also, you don't seem to have the knowledge it's gonna take to pull a head off so I suggest you take it to someone who will pull it off 'properly.' If the head is still good but you don't want to/know how to put it on a new/good block, I suggest selling the head and just use the money you get and put it towards a new motor...

    If you decide to get another motor, get it from here Specializing in JDM-USDM engines and parts... I promise, you won't regret it...:)
