    You'll need the motor and an LS ecu. If i were you, I'd pull out that B16, slap that head onto the B20 block, and drop it back into your car. Won't have to change anything else. But yeah mounts and linkage will work with the B20

    a b20 is a bored out ls block. they use the same rods and crank but a bigger bore. i would sugest doing a crvtec if you wanted to put in a b20. you will need vtec head bolts, oil feed line, crv head gasket and a new crv timing belt if you are using a crv water pump. the oil pump will be fine, it is the same part # and pump as a GSR. the motor mounts will be the same as what you got right now and the tranny will bolt up. and the wiring harness is a direct swap.
