    well if u wanted vtec a b16 seems to be popular.. but if u wanna keep it simple get a b18b1 head and cams.. the b18b1 had more lift duration than the a1, i also have a b18a1 and am putting a b1 head on mine and the b1 cams.. im sure there is other ones that may be better though..

    frankenstein'd? hardly. your just putting a newer ls head on an ls. not a big deal at all. if you were doing an ls-vtec build then sure that term might be more appropriate.

    the b18b1 was not in the 93 integra. first year for a b1 was 1994, and they continued till 2001.

    although it is an improvement, i wouldn't expect a huge gain. it also depends whether the engine you started with was a 90-91 or a 92-93 because they were rated differently. so if you have a 92-93 engine then doing this swap soley for a power increase is really not worth it.

    Power: 90-91 Only: 130 bhp (97 kW) @ 6000 rpm & 121 ft·lbf (164 N·m) @ 5000 rpm
    Power: 92-93 Only: 140 bhp (100 kW) @ 6300 rpm & 126 ft·lbf (171 N·m) @ 5000 rpm
    Power: 94-01 Only: 142 bhp (106 kW) @ 6300 rpm & 127 ft·lbf (172 N·m) @ 5200 rpm

    i know what you mean man, nothing wrong with that lol. but atleast now you know. if you have a 90-91 engine and can get a b1 head for cheap, then by all means do it.
