    hey guys i have an ek4 b16 at the moment and was thinkin of takin 'Poom's B18c4 engine of him but the bottom end needs rebuilding, i can sort all that its just is it worth the effort as these are like 10bhp more than a b16? anyone else done a similar swop? what do you think to these? also its on Type-R cams :Smile: any help would be great cus i really want it! :Grin:


    Thanks

    personally wouldn't bother with the damaged b18 and get a b20 bottom end instead

    B18c4 with a teg gearbox = good results.

    yes i have my mate has one on his Del Sol :Smile: just not sure if its worth messing around with for an extra 10bhp lol
     
  7. daz-civic Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    b20 bottom end gives you alot more than 10bhp

    the bottom ends can be picked up for between 300 - 500 mate.

    My B16 in my EM1 has ITR cams in it, with the usual bolt on bits it made 173 BHP, no slouch at all!
