B Series Overview

Available in 1.6, 1.7, 1.8 and 2.0 Litre configurations, the B Series remains the most popular choice when performing a Honda engine swaps.

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 horsepower.


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 litres.


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.
