Default B-16b

Would the b-16b be a good engine to put in my 98 honda civic. Is this engine any better than the b-18c. And also would this be a good engine to do mods to such as rebuild and put pistons, cams, Turbo, etc....I would appreciate any more suggestions on what engine i should get and other upgrades for the engine. And also will i have to get new axles if i get it. I have a d-16 y8 engine in my car now and i have the stock axles. I f i need new ones what would be the best place to get them and what kind.

wayyyyy to many posts on this already but ill do the drty work. a b16b is what most of us swap in. its a good motor for littler money. some leave it, some turbo it. ill be changing out cams and doing internal work for mine.

the best F/I motor would be the gsr motor (18c1) altho a bit more costly, it hold up to a turbo better then such things as a type -r motor(18c5). type-r motor is a good strong motor but realy not worth the money, u can do better for cheaper.

best drag motors are like the h22(lude) motor or the f20b motor(accord type-r). but those are big blocks and take up ALOT of space and possible frame cutting.those motor also dont run that cheap soo over all your best with the si(b16b) or gsr (18c1)

correct me if im wrong, maybe im just tired, but the b16b is the ctr motor. that is damn expensive, and really not that much different from either the jdm or usdm b16a. i believe the b16b makes 170 hp, due to slightly higher c/r (i think it is 10.4 to 1, but dont quote me). other than that, it has a few choice differences, poly coating on the pistons, and a few other things. b16b is expensive though since it is the real deal ctr. b16a sir II full swap with tranny, ecu, manifolds, axles is 2200, 2500 with lsd b16b is in the high 3's

You still didnt answer my question, is it better to get the b-16b over the b-18c. The b-16b pushes more horses stock, so that is why i am planning to get the b-16b. Let me know if i am wrong.

no, go with the b18c in my opinion, more aftermarket support, and more tq if im not mistaken. the b16b is an expensive b16 with poly coating on the pistons and raised compression. not worth it unless you are really into the jdm or building your ctr thing. other than that, b18c or normal b16 is what i reccomend

yeah, your car will be faster with the b18c, and all mods will give a bit more power gains because of the higher displacement. even though the b16b has 5 more horses, the b18 has almost 20 more lb-ft of torque.
