See this thread.


Also:

B18b is non Vtec and B18c1 & B18c5 are Vtec.

So a "B18" isn't exactly a real motor, it has more call numbers :)

And yea, you already have Vtec (the B16y8).

also i am planing to top either one of those engines i am getting with either a turbo or super charger... so which engine would be better? and which charger should i use with that engine if it even matters


Yes it matters a lot. Superchargers create low end power (for less straight line racing) while turbos create top end power (for things like quarter miles..).

Oh I know, but he would learn that if he read the reference section.
Which I'm trying to point him towards.

And it's Hexen. Not Hexan.. Why does everyone think it's Hexan?
