Honda B16 Engines

 

B16 was the first version of B-Series that rolled of the assembly line. Every version of the B16 engine was equipped with VTEC, starting with the very first B16 found in the 1988 JDM Honda Integra. During its life span, seven different  versions of B16 engines were  produced. All of them were displacing 1595cc, with bore and stroke of  81mm and 77.4mm. The first six of them, named B16A, B16A1, B16A2, B16A3, B16A4 and B16A6 were nearly the same  with minor differences in mapping and compression ratio. The power output was 150hp for the first version named B16A. The later versions, B16A1, B16A2, B16A3, and B16A6 were delivering 160 hp. The most powerfull version were B16A4 and B16A5 used in JDM and USDM Civic Si-RII  between 1996-2000. These engines were delivering 170hp. B16 engines were widely used in Civic, Del-Sol, and CRX models all around the world.

 

 

Honda B16B Engine

 

The most special B16 engine was B16B which was specially produced for JDM Civic EK9 Type R.  Besides its distinctive red valve cover, B16B was featuring wilder camshafts, higher compression - low friction pistons, ported and polished cylinder head, lighter connecting rods, fully balanced crankshaft, lighter inlet valves, dual layered inlet and exhaust valve springs and most importantly a different short block. B16B was using the same short block with B18C5. This block was 8.1mm longer than regular B16 block.  This  way Honda technicians were able use longer connecting rods to achieve a higher rod stroke ratio. Allowing the engine to rev 8900 RPM.

 

The production of all B16 versions were ceased with the rest of B - Series in 2000. Please check out Honda B-Series Engines page for general information on B Series.
