The B18 family
The B18 came in both non-VTEC and VTEC variants. The B18A non-VTEC powerplant was first used in the 1986-1989 Accord Aerodeck, EXL-S/EX-S and Vigor MXL-S in Japan.
The JDM version is marked B18B on the unnumbered block. The JDM version has a 9.4:1 compression ratio while the USDM version has 9.2:1.
B18 or B-18 may refer to: Alton Bay Seaplane Base (FAA LID: B18) B-18 Bolo, an American bomber aircraft manufactured by Douglas, based on the Douglas DC-2. B 18, a Swedish bomber aircraft by SAAB. B18 (New York City Bus) serves Brooklyn.
The Integra Type R is equipped with a 1.8-liter DOHC VTEC inline four-cylinder (B18C) engine.
“The K-Series is far better: the head flows at higher CFMs, it has roller swingarms and a larger displacement,” said Rodcharoen. In the area of forced induction, the distance between the K series and the B series decreases.
With a fixed engine, the 11.8:1 B20-VTEC produces 227 hp and 167 lb-ft of torque.
At 3000-5400 rpm, depending on the load, one of the VTEC solenoids engages, causing the second valve to engage the camshaft of the first valve. Also referred to as 16-valve mode, this method is similar to a normal engine operating mode and improves the mid-range power curve.
Production of the D-Series began in 1984 and ended in 2005. D-Series engine technology culminated in production of the D15B 3-Stage VTEC (D15Z7), available in markets outside the United States was available.
Honda has further improved the original VTEC system, which has now evolved into the Honda i-VTEC® (intelligent VTEC). This technology was first available in 2001 and most Honda 4 cylinder vehicles used i-VTEC® until 2002. The i-VTEC® system combines the original VTEC with Honda’s VTC (Variable Timing Control).
Introduction. In 1989, Honda launched the first generation of the B16 engine in the Integra XSi and CRX SiR, which later spawned six more generations during its eleven-year lifespan.
