    im assuming you are refering to the B18B (LS engine)??
    if so the B20 and B18 head are the same .... the intake manifolds are different ... but you shouldnt use either one anyway (the B20 wont fit and the LS one just sucks)
    id say get a B20 long block
    get some turbo cams from crower
    get a GSR tranny
    get a skunk2 intake manifold
    get a big ass throttlebody

    your pretty much ready to go at that point :)

    if you want VTEC dont bother with swapping heads and shit
    just get a GSR engine and resleeve it to 84mm
    that will give you the VTEC head you want and the 2L bore that you want
    and a resleeved GSR will be much stronger and more reliable than a stock walled B20
    the GSR tranny is great
    you can get it with an LSD

    resleeving the B18C is a great option, in this case, you don't have to bother with oil line hook up and wiring/ecu, and all that other jack shitty, since you want turbo, get the SiR-G tranny, you'll be satisfy with it. i agree with E_SolSi. nough said.

    resleeving = replacing the walls of the cylender (sleeves) with stronger material... often people choose to go with a larger bore when doing this for added displacement

    golden eagle does this .... but they are in the US and shipping will kill you
    i have no clue where you could go in AUS

    Well if I was going turbo and I wanted a respectable setup that is quick, I would run the B18c with new sleeves 84mm for sure, pistons, rods, fuel set up, engine management, nice t3/t4, and make sure you get some type of LSD since it will only help.

    buddy of mine had a LS sleeved motor with a drag gen 3 kit, t3/t4, and a little tuning, pistons, and shot pened rods and ran a 12.7 on a full interior eg hatchy.

    If you look into Sport Compact Car a little while ago there was a LS Turbo powered hatchy that ran an mid 11 i think and the fucker had all the interior and look factory from the outside, the chick even painted her intercooler black to make it sleeper.
