    I have an obd1 b20b sitting under the hood of my EF with i/h/e and im looking to free up some horsepower via Blox 66mm TB, Skunk 2 intake mani, hondata IM gasket, bdl fuel rail, 250cc-310cc rc injectors, head gasket to bump up compression, hondata s300, and a fpr. i allready have a 190lph pump installed.
    But since the ls head on there doesnt flow very well will i c any noticable power gains?
    Im looking for some good hp gains maybe around 15 to the wheels but i still want some low end to midrange tq any suggestions?

    Going vtec is not in the equation as of right now prolly at the end of this summer.

    If you're planning a VTEC head swap for later this summer, then why dump a bunch of money into it now? You'll need a different head gasket and intake manifold at that point anyway. Just save your money and have what you really want to have that much faster...

    I see alot of money and no real power. Add Cams to that list and you'll actually see gains out of the throttle body, IM, and a good tune. (on top of the I/H/E) Otherwise they are a complete waste of cash.
