HONDA VTEC B SERIES ENGINE GUIDE AND SPECIFICATION B16A B16B B18C B20

Tuning a vtec engine equipped car can be very interesting. A vtec engine is famous for producing high power without the use of any forced induction. A Vtec engine is simply a high revving monsterous machine.Eventhough im a ‘turbo’guy, i do have an interest on Vtec engine, especially the B16b engine which produce 185bhp with only 1.6 liter of displacement without the aid of a turbo or superchargers.Yes, its pure engine power.

Another thing that i like about Vtec engine is the ability to mix and match the engines. As long as the engine falls under B series, it is basically inter mixable.My favourite combo for this matter would be a B20B Block from The Honda Crv combined  with a B16A or even a B16B head.Swap in some performance cam and few tuning here and there, you’ll be smilling all day long on this monsterous machine.

A favourite Honda car of mine is the Eg6, Ek9 Type R and the Dc2 Type R. With a race tuned engine, these machines are exceptionally fast in the touge and circuits.And if you notice, all the car that i mention is in the 90′s where they only bother on producing maximum power without even thinking of fuel consumption and emmission.It is  the glorious day of car modification.

Eventhough all this vtec engine had been around for more tha 20 years, it is still one of the favourite engines to be worked on. Especially the B16 and the B18 series. So i would like to share as much info as possible on the Vtec B Series engine.

  2. Am_VTEC Killer says:

    Bro.looks like u know much on vtec. I want to ask u sumthin. How is the B16A maintenance?

  3. azameel says:

    maintenance should be simillar to any other 1.6 engine since its an NA engine.
    but fuel consumption wise, if you always drive in the vtec range around 5K+ rpm, your fc is going to be a bit high,

  4. Vtec killer (pembunuh vtec) says:

    Hi i really need some advise. I wanna purchase a eg94 with a b18b non vtec head. The bottom end is now a 2.0 i would like to buy this car and add a b16a head. Can this be done? How will i know if the vtec will kick in at the 5k plus rpm if i go through with the conversion? Do i need to buy also an ecu? Or do you connect the oil feed to the head so that the vtec kicks in? Also can i take this to honda motors to be done? Please reply as i would like to do touge racing here in cape town sa. My previous car is a right off after 4 years of racing the mountain roads and need a proper machine to race with. Please help. Your input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Regards.

    Hey , Im an ex mitsi man, recently owned a 10sec evo and have recently purchased a 93′ dc2 b18c v-tec (not a type-r and non LSD) something i know nothing about (Honda’s) but would like a performer, just wondering what mod’s would be the best to start with to increase power for less money possible and maybe even if the type-r parts would fit straight on, —Type-R Fuel pump or get a fuel regulator?, Water pumps?, type-r ecu or full management system?, v-tec controller or not?, and 1 problem i seem to be having is that the v-tec doesn’t always work-could this mean i have a faulty distributer or ????, Please if you can help in any way possible it would be much appreciated.
