    i just read the B16 head B18 block thread,

    ima noob just wnt to say good post!

    i'm new to rice rockets the last few years i built a 90 teg while i was in the military and then i was hit in it this year, it was totaled and am now parting it out. i have a 96 civic with a B16A, LSD tranny and re-mapped ecu out of a 96 SiR it was imported by nippon motors, anyway the teg had a B18C1 i just sold the head so a buddy could do a LS/Vtec. this thread has got me thinking now should i pull apart the JDM B16A and use the B18 block? the block has dished pistons and a lightend crank other than that its stock. or should i keep the imported motor together and build a JDM SiR coupe?

    thanks

    Well it'd surely be a better bottom end than your torqueless B16.
    Haha, sorry not everyone's life revolves around yours.

    I mean, when I woke up this morning, I said:
    "I sure hope 'lightdrinker' came over to HS and asked a question so I can answer it!"
