B Series OverviewAvailable in 1.6, 1.7, 1.8 and 2.0 Litre configurations,
the B Series remains the most popular choice when performing a Honda
The B Series was available with and without Honda's V-TEC. The engines
with V-TEC are, even in OEM form, the most desirable, as the variable
valve timing allows for better tuning and ultimately more torque and
Here at King, we've done hundreds of B Series swaps. We have unsurpassed
knowledge experience and proven results building and tuning these
motors. Whether street, road course or strip, King's B Series builds
have proven not only fast, but incredibly reliable.
Although many B Series end up as Hybrids, or highly-modified, we build
many to OEM specs, especially for the Integra Type R owners who wish to
keep their cars original, but still want the most out of their B18s.
The LS-VTEC Hybrid combines the best of two different Honda powerplants
while maintaining OEM parts and reliability. The LS-VTEC takes its name
from the most commonly used parts; the 1.8 litre shortblock from an
Integra LS (or GS/RS), and a VTEC head from an Integra Type R/GSR, Civic
Si or Del Sol VTEC.
The 2 litre version can be created in two ways: using a stock 2 litre
CR-V block or having an Integra LS/RS/GS block sleeved to displace 2
The reason for using either shortblock, aside from displacement in the 2
litre, is the stroke. The Type R and GSR have a stroke of 87.2mm, while
the LS or CR-V stroke is 89mm. Combining either option with OEM JDM
VTEC pistons results in substantial low and mid-range torque, as well as
increased horsepower across the entire power band.
Substantial power and torque are easily obtainable through exhaust,
intake and cams. Add to the mix the key ingredients of a good tuning
solution along with King's expert tuners and you've got the recipe for
some serious all-motor power!
Add forced induction and 500+ WHP
is easily attainable.
We offer three build categories, but almost all of
our builds combine aspects of all three.
