    not sure on the fit but I can tell you the oem wires will give the most power,there have been numerous threads here and on honda tech,some with dynos and all.OEM's are the way to go.

    that is why i asked^ lol, i have OEM wires on my old D16z6, and the b16 wires could go for some new wires, im just trying to save the trip to the dealer, and the money.

    Well, if you have both, go swap em and find out for this guy.


    But I am inclinded to say no, they will not fit. Reason being that there isn't much room for stretching them out, and the B series is bigger. Also, I don't know it the post on the distributor on the B series is bigger or not, they might not be, but they could.
