    What fuel does the JDM B16a SiR II motor uses? Well, in my state (California). The highest octane gas that i've seen is 92. But i'm using 91. Am i using the right gas? It makes ticking noises. And I was wondering if i am using the right fuel. I have the basic mods I/H/E

    get some octane boost, im pretty sure that the jdm motors have been run at a higher octane then we run here. you might want a vavle job done also if you dont already have one done.

    well, the b16 does have a higher CR than the b18c (gsr) i dont put anything but premium in my car either, you want to avoid knocking/pinging... guess it matters how much you care about your motor :)

    Japan has 98 octane gas so yes your correct there. octane boost does nothing. It raises octane levels by like .1 points, it is not worth the money

    really, just use 91 pr 92, and get a valve adjustment so your ticking stops :p

    i know that this is pretty much totally non related but what is the octane rating for Diesel Fuel? Is it possible to ignite (sp) with a spark plug at higher compressions (like over 15:1 cp ratios)?

    I don't know the octane rating for diesel fuel, but I'm sure that there is one. I don't see why you couldn't ignite it with a spark plug- you wouldn't need high compression to fire it with a spark either.

    for sure, it relies on detonation to run :D
