    Use the head gasket that goes with the block, the LS gasket. Check the FAQ articles on building LS/VTEC engines for more information...

    Well, you can look on the outside of the head for a casting. Look for things like P72, PR3, etc.

    I dont know if the seals are different between the gsr and b16 head, but if you say you need seals for a 99 civic si (if you are in the states) you'll get what you need. Otherwise, figure out what had a b16a engine in your area.
