    do you guys think the b20 engine is worth the price, ive decided im gonna switch to a b series and wanna do a swap asap, the b20 is the cheapest to get my hands on, i would love a gsr motor but i doubt it will happen, so is a b20 a good value. from what ive found parts from other b series fit right on it.

    im sick of having my ass beat by vw's

    b20s are decent motors for all motor.. mate a b16 or GSR tranny with it and it'll be a beast

    From what I hear they are definetely worth the price.

    There's a white EG that runs out at the local track.. ran a 13.40 all motor, b16 tranny, cams, and pistons i think, plus i/h/e of course.. stripped interior..

    Well the tranny that actually goes with it you probably aren't going to want. You can bolt up pretty much any B-series transmission to it, so I would suggest a B16 or GSR tranny. Those trannys are geared for acceleration.

    Get one with a P8R head if you an, its got Vtec sized valves 33mm vs the P75's 31mm.

    For tranny I'd go with a GSR for a street car, you don't need to have such low gearing as the B16a cause the B20 make more TQ then the other B eninges (remember the old saying, no replacement for displacement)

    oh and whatever tranny you get make sure its got an LSD...to help handle the extra Torque;)

    Good luck with it, thats the swap I'm planning on as well.

    an b20 motor would be sweet. but if you went b20 with a vtec head would be even beter you get about 200 hp with the b20 vtec conversion and if you and get a type r trany that shit would be quick ass hell

    well just remember a B20/vtec would cost about the same as a GSR setup if you add up all the parts to build it correctly though. That being said I've seen Dyno's of B20/vtec's that run ~235HP & 151 ftlbs :eek:...now thats a beast.
