vtec with b18-A?
Where the hell is the question? Capitalization?

I'll humor you just this once, next time we'd expect something to be written regarding the question, like information or specifics.

VTEC B18As are had by taking a VTEC head (such as GSR, B16A) and placing it on the B18A block. Its referred to commonly as LS/VTEC and is considered a Frankenstein engine due to two seperate B-series being used.

There are a lot of problems for people who are inexperienced with building creating one of these, such as bolts to secure everything. Oil running properly. Everything matching up well, etc.

A qualified mechanic can build a monster LS/VTEC though; my mechanic has a 199x 2 dr civic (looks about '99) with full interior from the front seats up (cage in the back) that runs approximately 10.63 in the 1/4. Turbo'd, arguably one of the best engine routes for drag, but not at all reliable unless built well and with experience.

Edited - I said D series, not B! duh.

You need to be a little more specific in what you are asking since it is very vague.

I am guessing you're asking about putting a b18a and adding vtec to it?

The route to go is to use the b18a block and put a vtec head on it (b16, b17a(92-93 Gsr) b18c1 or c5 (GSR or Type R).
More commonly known as the LS Vtec swap.

These type of swaps should only be done by folks with experience, as these type swaps are only as good as the person who built them.

You mean b series? :lol:
You can make a "Frankenstein" d series verison aka "mini me", by putting a d series vtec head on a d series block.
But you CANNOT mix b series block and heads with d series.

Get a golden eagle LSVTEC (or CRVTEC) kit. Has the dowels to line the head up, the oil lines for vtec, head gasket. You run a GSR timing belt and water pump. Thing is don't plan on revving it higher then 8000rpm without doing rod bolts. LS engine aren't designed to go to 9000rpm, and I have twisted rods and holes in LS blocks the size of a fist to proove it.
