Im looking for a b18b head on my b18a block. I was wondering if it would drop on without any mods. Can I use my ecu from the b18a its a obd0. I heard that the b18b head is a lot better that the b18a head, and the blocks were basically the same. Is this true? I was planning out getting the head milled how far can I safely do that with an b18a block and stock pistons? If I get my head milled how far do I advance the Cams?
Should I get a hydro trans for it, if so where could i get one?

IMO, the gain isn't worth the hassel. you are talking 5 hp probably...

and milling heads are bad, at least to me it is..
