Can't say for sure, but I'm pretty sure it will work. I've never tried this though, I would assume B-Series covers would have to be the same or else a timing cover for an LS-VTEC would not be possible.

Yup, it should be a straight fit. Had covers from a b18b and b16a sitting next to each other, and were pretty much identical. As far as I can tell the extra material for the taller deck blocks is in the upper covers

Ok, I wasnt sure. But I do know if the block/oil pump is from a (96+) and the timing cover is from a 90-95 you will have to trim the lower cover to fit.

1st gen b16a is the same as 1st gen b18a

2nd gen b16a is different than 1st gen b18a.

Ive never owned a b18b so I can say for sure on that one.

I have had issues with this. It depends on the oil pump. What B16, and what B18 cover?
