    i'd keep the b16. you'd be much better off buyin' a b20 shortblock and building a b20/vtec.... or turboin' the b16.

    I disagree. A well built B20 turbo is an awesome setup- better than a B16A2 in my opinion. The only question here is- how well is it built?

    keep the B16, with your budget getting into gallons of oil and fixtures of the B20 turbo, you could have built that b16 already. something must be wrong with the B20 he's selling, never know. nough said.
