if possible! make it possible! go with the b18c5.but if u cant u can always buy the b16 swap and make yourself a strong reliable LsVtec. with the b16 head/intake and tranny u will be set. Lean towards vtec, its much more fun to drive, and with some tuning your vtec will have a great "pull" when engaged.u already have a b18. u already know what it feels like, now slap a vtec head and have some fun smoking mustangs, i know i do! lolI actually just sold my 91' integra with an Lsvtec. B16 head, ITR intake manifold, 4-1 header with straight pipe.b18 block with b16 pistons. chipped p30 ecu with obd0 to obd1 jumper. fast, but had alot more potential. I pulled on a 98' Gt Mustang, like nothing. heres some pics. check out the "sleeper" lol

if possible always shoot for that b18c5. thats the type r dc2 motor and its hell of a motor too. just to help you out bro heres how they break it down for honda enginesall honda engines pretty much use the same setup to badge their motors but ima use the b18c1 engine as an exampleB18C1:-the b stands for the series, which is b motor-the 18 is how much liters it has. a b18 has 1.8 liters. while a h22 has 2.2 liters, and a k20 has 2.0 liters.
