maybe u can try to do a search here. if my memory serves me right, there was a thread on B16A B16B not too long ago.

anyway, what is ur budget bro? if u r like me with other priorities, u can opt for the B16A which is powerful enuf compared to ur SOHC engine

depend on ur budget and goal.

if u are lazy to mod, then go for b16b. but if u have lots of time and enjoy the process of modding, then go for b16a, use the balance to start ur own mod.

B16B anyday. But why B16B when you can go quicker with a B18C?

Well I think your question doesn't make any sense without mention out your budget.

If budget is not an issue, forget about B16B and go for B18CR.

The price is way too different for B16A and B16B and you won't find your answer without your budget.

maybe he try to do comparison which one is better.. if majority say b16b oso almost same with b16a the he might getting b16a... n vice versa...
after getting answer then he will start kumpul duit if his current bajet not permitted.

b16a EK RM7-8k..

and to make it same with type r u need to spend on this
b16b cam + vs = RM1.5-1.6k
b16b valve = RM400
b16b intake manifold = 1.5k
b16b lsd = 1.4k
b16b ecu = 0.5k
b16b extractor = 0.4k
b16b head = 1.2k

total different = 7k + 7k = 14k

so better get b16b engine conversion @RM11k
but that one if got intention to mod ur b16a to r...

hehe... btw, avantech got 1 unit engine package for b16b now.. selling at 10.5k only. please pm for details if u interested.

business, business..... kekeke.

But anyway, hattech has pointed out very clearly the difference of both engine in terms of price and it is definitely way better off to get the B16B if you plan to upgrade to type R later, might as well put it one shot.

Bear in mind that, however, you will get yourself the dashboard, climate control and meter cluster for the price of EK4 halfcut mentioned here between 7~8K while you only get the engine for 10~11K.

if getting a b16a, it is not worth to mod into b16b already. its "better value" to get some aftermarket performance part.

how come in kuching here, b18cR is cheaper than b16b? i know one B18CR with 25k milleage going for 10k only. anyone interested? can shipped to kl :P
B16B here is too hard to source in kuching.

EK4 black dashboard definitely much nicer, if Japan one with digital climate control much shiok, got hot air with fully automatic air flow system... shiok gila ni...... kekeke

Well ok..thanks for the replies. I just wanna use this car for 1 or 2 years only. Wat is the different between B16B and B18C, price? How is the maintenance as i staying in PJ and working in Cyber, traveling everyday, will it be so high maintenance? My budget is abt rm 8K half cut + installation. Mine is still 96 specs so i'm planning to face lifts to 99 specs as well. any suggestion? i need this get done as soon as possible as my engine is really kong.

Erm how much will be the EG B16B half cut? same power as EK? need more ans on this, thanks!!

I STRONGLY suggest you sell off your car and get another ready mod with the engine transplant for that kinda time frame. It really doent worth the efforts to do all the exterior mod and engine transplant and I will drive it as it is if I were you.

>Wat is the different between B16B and B18C, price?
you can try pm or calling hattech-v for price quotes.

> How is the maintenance as i staying in PJ and working in Cyber, traveling
> everyday, will it be so high maintenance?
service maintenance are similar to other brand cars regardless of destination and travel distance. keep your service logs.

>My budget is abt rm 8K half cut + installation. Mine is still 96 specs so i'm >planning to face lifts to 99 specs as well. any suggestion? i need this get done >as soon as possible as my engine is really kong.
again, pm hattech-v for engine and bodyparts.

>Erm how much will be the EG B16B half cut? same power as EK? need more ans >on this, thanks
no such thing as EG B16B. maybe it was hybrid in japan. "same power as EK" translate to endless combinations.

cheers
