The b18c is the engine code for both the JDM GSR and the JDM Type R.

b18c5 is usdm type R. ....the JDM has a bit more HP and an lsd transmission

I have a jdm B18C in my sol. Im still confused on the status of that though. I was never told if it had lsd or not, and if it is the gsr, or type r motor. anyone know how to check?

The Head will have the code stamp PR3 on it if it's a type r......and you'll have a red valve cover...the JDM GSR had optional LSD also..but I'm not sure if you can tell unless you look at the differential.


on a sidenote, I hope you know what you bought...cuz if you paid 4500-5000 for a GSR swap you got ripped...but then again if you paid 3000 for a type r ...now that ain't too bad!
