    would the b18a1 head be able to handle the high compression of the b16 tho?

    wouldn't the B16 pistons actually lower compression? (B18 pistons would theoretically have a longer stroke than the B16 pistons.) Stroke is also determined by the crankshaft. So i dunno.

    No. The B16 pistons have a larger dome.
