ok i hope i get this right i have a 1989 honda civic si. Been slowly uprgading the suspension,polybushing's,sway bars,etc.
yesterday i was doing my big brake upgrade and some fuel dripped on my arm. I looked up and this beast had a fuel leak i guess the maine snow had gotten to it went over rest of chassis for a rust hunt.
nothing real bad ripped d16y8 i just put it out and the exhaust sytem pulling the fenders off and front nose peice too interior is ripped out so now it is time to play!!

Dude, dont go for a b18b they are pointless. to much work and money for a small increase in performance. go b18a from 90-91 teg, much easier and almost equal power.

difference between the b18a and b18b
Code:
--b18a--                  --b18b--

head:
lesser agressive cams       slightly more agressive cams
very gay intake manifold      kinda gay IM
obd 0 or 1 depending on year  obd1 or 2 depending on year

block:
identical for the most part.... slight differences possibly in compression of pistsons or head gasket thickness... im not sure

tranny:
cable                    hydrolic
slightly different mount point for each as well

moral- get a b18a. it will plug right in a lot easier
