    I know what parts and everthing I need for both and the price for both of the engines.

    I want your opinions, and also any ideas on my time on the 1/4 mile all motor. These are the two engines I think would be the best for my car.


    B20 :
    less horsepower
    more torque

    B16A1:
    more horsepower
    less torque

    any opinions helps, thanks =]

    b20, b16s are torqueless...slap a vtec head that biotch and you'll be straight (theres alot more to it then just the head). Or you can always turbo it and have some nice power.

    What people fail to realize is that the b16 is FACTORY TUNED to 160 hp where as the b20 is not meant to be a performance motor, and therefore NOT factory tuned. Put similar cams and high compression pistons with basic bolt ons in the b20 and you'll have well over 200 hp. Displacement+Honda Motor = whoop ass.
