    Hey guys

    If I've got a B16a2 head/ B18c4 bottom end do I still continue buying B16 filters or do I need a B18 one now..

    Are the both the same size etc coz I know the cambelts for these are bigger by 2 teeth, lol...

    i am sure they are all the same on the b series. The cam belt will be bigger as the b18 block is longer.

    Id say they the same as the fuel filter on most petrol cars is underneath near the tank so has nothing to do with your engine bay?

    you'll have no benifit, as there all the same, irrespective of engine size :Smile:

    the only way you could "improve" the filter system is to go after market, but its hardly worth the cost/effort, as it really won't "improve" the performance of the car! :-D
