engine b18c / b18b

Engine Honda B18C / B18B

It was in the engines of this series that the VTEC system was first used. With a 1.8-liter engine, the story was slightly different. Honda decided to experiment with a B-motor without VTEC. This is how the B18B engine appeared, which was of a larger volume (correspondingly with a better start), but absolutely normal when reaching the VTEC zone. Things changed completely when Honda decided to add VTEC to the 1.8-liter engine. The release of the B18C engine marked the emergence of a new generation of motors with “motorcycle” characteristics, when more than 100 hp were “removed” from one liter of volume, and which could “spin” over 9000 rpm.
