Default B16b vs B18c1/B18c5

which one would be better for a 2dr 95 ex? cuz the B16b redlines higher but the B18c has more torque?

Man, everybody is asking this lately. Did everybody win the lottery or something?

Torque = Go.

But, if you want my opinion... Be different, Rock the D.

well i heard that the b20 is rarely used, but what combinations can you do with it, or even to make it v-tech?

Sad.

Get a b18c5 if you have the funds orjust turbo your current engine if it's like an EX.

He means sad because it's not v-tech with an "h" it's vtec as in Variable Valve and lift with Electronic Control.

I have been reading that the B20 bottom and B16 or B18 head is getting really popular.
