    Is there a difference between b16a2 head and b16b head? Are they same parts or b16b is modified from factory? What about valves are they different between 2 heads? I know springs and maybe retainers are different on b16b head, uprated compare to b16a2 heads.


    I am thinking of buying b16a2 head change the cams to EK9 cams , change the springs and retainers but can I keep standard valves?


    Thanks in advance
