    parts trader sucks ass. and havign the wrong intake manifold is a pthetic reason not to buy a cheap Vtec head. you can make the b16a intake manifold work with it, or better yet, just buy a cheap b18b intake manifold until you can afford the gsr one. i have like three intake manifolds for sale if you want.

    I like partstrader, I have always used it and to me it has been good :)

    As far as the head, i would buy it, GSR heads are costing roughly 700ish since they are in a little bit of more demand than b16's are. Just buy a skunk intake manny and problem solved.

    why not. the bolt pattern isn't that different.

    well i'm saying that, but i am comparing my b16 intake manifold to my b18a and b18b. and i always heard you can get the gsr intake mani to fit ls motors so why not the other way around.

    not trying to be stupid or start an argument. just want to know.

    their are two differences between the b16a intake manifold pattern and the b18a/b

    1. there is one stud that is in the wrong spot

    2. the coolant passages are different

    there are no differences that i know of between the ls and gsr manifold mounting pattern.
