Torque and CR (B16B has 10.8:1, JDM C5 has 11.1:1)

I've never done a B16B swap, but it would be almost identical to a JDM Type R swap.

Crap. My bad. I should have paid more attention to the post. Oh well. Uh, off the top of my head, I don't think anyone on here has/had a B16B (they're usually pricey and hard to get) but I'll let them speak for themselves...

I think if you have long-term plans you'd be better off with a C/C1 swap... less than either a C5 or a B16B and just about as much fun (sacicons knows...)
