    They can be turbocharged. Never actually saw a B20 turboed in a CRV, but as long as there is clearance it should work out well.

    it shouldnt be any harder than turboing any other b series honda. the only thing is that you will probly have to modify the intercooler piping, or have it custom made. but thats really not a big deal. if you are leaving the engine stock internally, i think 250whp would be a good goal. it will be torquey too.

    find a local tuner near you, thats your best bet. see what they can tune with (or like to tune with) and go from there. some guys will chip your ecu and tune it on chrome for cheap. a better option that is still fairly inexpensive is Neptune. my tuner installed it on my ecu and dyno tuned my car for $300. it has all the features of hondata S300 for less money, and is a much better and possibly safer program than one of the free ones like Chrome.

    Here's my two cents. You said you had a b20z. b20zs are higher compression than my b20b4. If you used b20b Dish pisons or even a 2.5 mm turbo head gasket you'd be on the safer side and able to bumb the boost slighly higher. A head gasket change is about as easy as it gets.

    8.8 versus 9.6. Both are fine for boost. No need to pull it apart.
