    I talked to some guy and he told me that due to emissions over in japan the majority of the motors are carb. He also said if an engine is really a jdm it wont have a # at the end. I.E. d15b7 vs d15b being jdm version. He said you would just take the carb of and attach your intake manifold and would be good to go. Is he right? I dont think i ever heard of a carb b18b or b16.

    whoever told you that carb shit is wrong
    more often than not the JDM engine codes will not have the last # (B18C instead of B18C1)
    the only acception i know of is the old B16A1 (rare engine... came in a special edition of the JDM CRX)

    Actually, if you look at the line up in Japan, they do have quite a number of carbed models. Civic ran them till 96, when they all went FI, up to third gen ludes, and fourth gen accords too. So he isn't really full of shit, but he isn't not either.
