    Either one would work. if you go with a b20, change the intake manifold (skunk2 non vtech model). or you can pick up a single cam vtech engine(d16y8 or d16z6)
    they will bolt up to your stock tranny and you can put in in your engine bay without mods. from their you could go turbo ,etc

    If you're not going to use a Vtec motor, might as well go for displacement, B20. Any choice on a turbo yet or still weighing all the scales? T3/T4E with a .48AR turbine housing should do the trick ;)

    I say use the b20 block and a b18b head. Then boost it. I just love that motor combo.

    12s or 13s is going to be expensive as hell all motor. I would just boost it.

    FYI, vtec does not have an "H" in it.

    how do you type a sentence with every word beginning with a capital letter? i have never seen that in my entire life. ever.
