why are you putting in a 1.6? somebody correct me of im wrong, but cant u put a b18c in there? if youre doing a swap, might as well do a good one.
as for your question on 1.6 liter vtecs, i think that there is only one

do some research. dude, i think your better off swapping in a bigger motor.
and dont get a SOHC if you want performance. i just had a whole thread about this. search for "SOCH or DOHC" in the garage forum. basically the SOHC vtecs are economy based and overrated.


ok, now someone please correct me if im wrong, but if youre planning on FI, arent you better off with a nonvtec?

Its not a money issue is it? If not then, I would agree with druuuu... Me personally, I would just drop in a b18b and say the hell with the b18c... Check the numbers of both in torque!!!
