Any B-series head will fit on any B-series block. Or mostly. I don't think you can do a 3.5L head on a 1.8L block. If you want more power then you should consider buying yourself a Gsr engine perhaps an ITR and swap for what you got in your car. But they are pricey and you won't be sure of how many actual miles they have already. You could do Ls-vtec. drop a gsr(b18c1) head or ITR(b18c5) on your block, also a b16 head. Then you'd have to go for vtec conversion and all that. If you got the $$$ go for it but there's more to it than you think. You can google Ls-vtec and you'll learn more about it. And it depends on what you go for if you Have to swap tranny or be able to keep what you got. Good luck

YES, i've seen the J32/35 swap done first hand...but there is a LOT of work... you will need new EVERYTHING. if you have the funds and time, by all means. but if not...i'd honestly recommend dropping a GSR or Type R b18 instead
