Japanese automakers have ascended the auto industry’s ladder to become some of the most popular and consumer friendly in the whole world.
Honda has been the world's largest motorcycle manufacturer since 1959, as well as the world's largest manufacturer of internal combustion engines measured by volume, producing more than 14 million internal combustion engines each year.

Honda car company became the second-largest Japanese automotive manufacturer in 2001 and a major player in the  sports cars bussiness. Honda was the eighth largest auto-mobile manufacturer in the world behind General Motors, Volkswagen Group, Toyota, Hyundai Motor Group, Ford, Nissan, and PSA in 2011.

Honda owners have created their own community. Their own Honda JDM subculture. Engine swaps and tuning is something casual !

Where VTEC was born !

195 PS/ 1797cc / 176 N·m / stock performance

We already know that:
The B-series are a family of inline four-cylinder DOHC automotive engines introduced by Honda in 1989. Sold concurrently with the D-series which were primarily SOHC engines designed for more economical applications, the B-series were aimed more as a performance option, featuring dual-overhead cams along with the first application of VTEC Honda system available in some models. One of the best Honda Civic engines ! The B-series, the B20B variant in particular, is not to be confused with the earlier Honda B20A engine introduced in 1985 and primarily available in the Prelude and Accord-derived vehicles from 1985-1991. While sharing some design elements and both being multivalve Honda four-cylinders, the B-series and B20A differ substantially in architecture, enough to be considered distinct engine families.

But this engine is
popular and lots of Honda JDM factor, if that’s something you are into. The ease in which the B series engine can be swapped into a Civic is frankly ridiculous, for a guide on how to swap a B series, check here. And you've got Honda Vtec specs that many could only desire.

If you want to bolt it in and go without bothering to modify or improve the engine’s performance, the B18C5 is the way to go. No need to mess with cam profiles or cam gears, simply installing a Type R engine will radically transform your Honda Civic.

Beware -It’s not cheap and in fact it’s still prohibitively expensive to swap a true B18C5.With the amount of normal B18a, B18B and B18C1 engines out there, it wouldn’t be financially wise to jump straight to the B18C5.

Master VTEC engine.
