    This is a kind of a generic question. If you were going to go the non vtec route for your motor would there be any gains in using the b20 head on a b16.

    I am asking this question just to see why this would/wouldn't work. This is not a swap I am going to go with just curiousity, so don't flame :ph34r:

    a b20 head is barely worth the time you spend to pull it from the block. just look at trying to buy a b20 block vs. the whole motor. that will really show the worth of that head. non-vtec is best in the forms of the b18b or the b20b or z. idk but maybe u could try a b18b head on a b20 block. never heard anything about it but it could be interesting.

    I know a guy with a B20z block and a B18b head with cams, valvetrain, p&p, and that's about it. He went low 13s in his EG hatch.
