    If you're tuning an engine properly, you won't feel the VTEC crossover anyway. It should be a perfectly smooth transition.

    Block girdle with resleeve = no way

    No P28 needed or wanted for a non-VTEC setup

    Yes, they're made of glass. A fart will break the sleeves. :p

    The B20 will handle boost just fine. If you're at a point to where you need to resleeve the B20 for boost, you'll be almost right up to the point where you'll need to resleeve a B18 too. The B20 walls are slightly weaker, but they can still handle quite a bit of punishment.

    What's your power target? A B20 can still handle 400whp if tuned properly. The pressure level doesn't mean anything on its own.

    1. Please use proper punctuation, spelling and grammar. Your posts are very difficult to read, which means people are less likely to respond. I barely got through what you last posted, and most forum readers have less patience than me.

    2. Yes, it's worth it. You can make 300whp easily on the stock sleeves if you or your tuner know what you're doing. That's plenty of power for the street, trust me. 500-600whp and you're most likely going to be running a turbo that will screw up your power curve enough to need race slicks to maintain traction when the boost hits. That's not daily driveable.
