    NAAAWWWWSSSS!!!!!!!

    save your money. if you are into racing, you'll need it down the road.

    if it truly is burning a hole in your pocket, i say LSD, good tires, upgrade the suspension. something along those lines. maybe even some new brakes.

    +1 for a vtec head. You don't need to build, just keep the rev's under control

    A stock gsr computer is going to rev out to 8200 rpm's, which is more than the stock b20 can handle. Plus, a b20 is larger than a b18c1, which means it gets more air, and hence, needs more fuel. I think a p28 ecu with a custom tune would suite you best.

    hell no... 10 psi of boost on a b20 will get you roughly 250-300whp depending on setup/tune. A b20/vtec will yeild 160-170 at the wheels stock.

    10 psi wont get that much power. maybe 240 or so, but nowhere near 300. if you are wanting speed for daily driving, just get a good tune and a few bolt ons. i also suggest going to a driving school. that will make you faster than any mod could ever do.

    well my b20 has stock internals so if its anything like the ls there good for 270-300hp on stock bottom end. i wouldnt want to risk it anymore then 13 max 8-10 everyday. well if its that much more power gain then im going to turbo it. im going for a fast car so its sounding like boooooosssssttttt

    the sleeves

    what tranny do you have?

    i would invest in a gsr w/lsd


    and why the 3" exhaust. i bet you would see a gain from going to 2.5"

    buy the 84mm gsr replica pistons and nice cams if you want to stay mild NA

    well right now i have the ls tranny with a stage 3 puck clutch and 9lb flywheel. gsr tranny would be nice but i just got my ls rebuilt so im going to run that for a bit. as for the exhaust i know that was alittl exessive but my buddy had 3" on his single slam jrsc and it did quite well so i figured bigger motor, more boost so i would run it also. puting gsr pistons in a b20 is the same concept as b16 pistons in a b18 right? higher compresion? also is the block gaurd a good thing to have on a b20 or is it pointless?

    with that transmission and that exhaust, boost may not be a bad idea.

    Short gears are always better. For boost, just swap in a LS final drive.

    I vote VTEC head, or just camshafts for your B20(like Crower or Crane)+tune, or transmission.

    Keep in mind he just had the tranny rebuilt and has a decent clutch and flywheel, an LS Tranny would be just fine with a small amount of boost, no need in replacing his tranny again if you ask me.

    Well, he did ask what he can do to improve the performance; and replacing the transmission is one of them. I've also suggested some other things he can do; keeping the $800 limit in mind(anything you replace could be resold anyways).

    Also, his car isn't boosted right now; so a better transmission would indefinitely make a noticeable difference.
