    You can't use the B18 crank in the B16A block unless you get really short custom rods and/or really short compression height pistons- otherwise your pistons will slam into the head. The B16A block is physically shorter than the B18 blocks. Now if you were talking about a B16B, you could use the B18 crank.

    Check your Helms manual for the rebuild parts list. It'll be better than what someone can tell you on the forum off the top of their head.

    As for more torque- increase your compression.

    You could also sleeve and bore to 85mm, more displacement will get you more torque.
