Well I know you all have one. DUHHH! But other than the B18A (1991 LS), what do you have under the hood? It seems to me that most people put the B16 V-tec cause it sooo cheep. I have also seen a fair amount of B18C1 or C5 in some cars. Now if some of them were the LS/V-Tec I dont know. Cant see the bottom of the motor to find out. Any how, if the B18 is better than the B16, then why put in the B16???
I think most common swaps are the B16, the GSR, ot the TypeR, and some LS/Vetc.
I have a sedan so I want to be able to get a motor that will be able to pick up for the extra weight. I dont think that the B16 in my car will win VS. the B16 in the HB. I looked around and so far it seems that the best for price with still not too much loss of power is the GSR swap. I know the LS/Vtec is a really good powerhouse if… AND ONLY if you build the bottom end up.
How about somthing like this
-sleves upgrade to the 2.0L
and some other little tech stuff that I know nothing about.
If all that is done then the motor will last as long as a OEM and is better than the B18C5… But i guess its too much money to do it right. AHHHH, Im going nuts. Any input would be killer. Thanks.
