    okay, so my boyfriend just/is swapping his old ex motor for a jdm b18b. I have constantly been nagging and basically bitching about his hobby in knowing things about cars. but I guess I want to support him now, trying to be a better girlfriend. although i know nothing about b18b engines whatsoever! but I was basically wondering if this engine can have a blow off valve or if that is only for turbo engines? :huh: he said it came out of an acura integra (which i did know) LS.

    -his motor was blown and he needed his car repaired ASAP so basically this was his only choice of an engine-

    anyways, I probably sound retarded. :withstupid: but that is because I don't know anything about integras, or engines in general. any help would be GREATLY appreciated!! is this engine capable of a blow off valve (the transmission and everything were from the same type of car obviously) and if so what kinds would you recommend?

    is there anything you possibly suggest that I could buy for him (engine wise) that would increase the performance/make it nicer or cleaner. you know anything like that? haha maybe like colored wires/connectors or idk something along those lines?

    You could just get him a gift certificate for E-Bay or some other supplier of car parts so he can choose what he wants...
