    Pretty much any boltons that you could use on your old B18A will work on the B20Z. Depending on how your shop put everything together, it's probably all the same as it was pre-swap under the hood except for a block with an 84mm instead of 81mm bore.

    What tranny do u have? and have u raced any body yet or have a guesstamate of your 1/4 time. I lost toruq after i installed my 4into1 dc in my 95gsr and didnt notice high end gain but ran a 14.6 at 94.0mph with intake, header and stock exhaust. I now havea b20z vtec and im very happy with the tourq. Your best bang for the buck is to get a vetc head.

    What intake manifold are you using? Check into a skunk unit or the like.

    b20b's are 700 at passwordjdm and other places, and i think my clutch is pretty good still, i can still chirp to 2nd without grinding, i just basically want a new engine because mine leaks and burns a lot of oil

    if your thinking of the b20b then youll have to change the intake manifold but in his case, he has a b20z which comes with the lower and shorter intake manifold.

    Either way the B20's manifolds are not very good...

    B20B has 126HP/133Tq
    B20Z has 140HP/133Tq

    i used the stock ls intake and went with a megan header....megan is a cheap copy of a mugen or dc style but it was 85.00 shipped and works and looks great....so all i really kept from the b20z set up was the block and head...i had to swap out intake man. , ex. man, crank pulley...but it went in great and runs good.... i would like to put a b16 head on it soon though

    ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT THE SWAP OR THE HEAD BRIAN???
    IF ITS THE HEAD I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT OIL LINE FOR VTEC, HEAD MACHINING TO FILL OIL SUPPLY HOLE, ECM PROGRAMMING, WIRING FOR KNOCK SENSOR AND VTEC OIL PRESSOR, INTAKE AND WHAT ELSE??
