    B20 if you want the extra compression. GS-R or LS otherwise...

    b20/ls

    and then there are weird people like me who would have pnp and 3 angle done on it and slap it on a b16 block w/ cometic head gasket and have some fun playing.

    the best block to put on it would be an ITR block. or get a gsr block with some itr/ctr pistons.

    do you really think a stock crv block is "better" than an ITR block?

    why tough and expensive?

    because it's a good block and more rare. which brings me to my next question. why would someone by a bare block and not have a anything else or a plan on what to do with it? thats like buying blu-ray dvd's without a blu-ray player or HDTV.

    Do not get the itr block to much $ for nothing special, the itr gets its power from the valvetrain and hfp port and polish, all located in the itr head, the itr block and the gsr block are almost identical. I would personally suggest the gsr block it came off of. that will make you the happiest with the leas heartache. if you must though get a b18a block and make an lsvtec. just make sure you reasearch and do it right or it will be a total pos. (arp rod bolt & headstuds, gsr oil& waterpumps, etc) gl

    Very true, but by the same logic you'd assume that any of the other engine blocks mentioned would also be properly prepped and/or built for whatever purpose they're intended. Obviously an ITR block would be nice, but I don't really see spending the extra money for it when you can just choose one of the cheaper alternatives when you're going to be building it to suit your needs anyway.

    If it was the head we're talking about, then yeah, spending some extra bucks for the ITR might be worth it, but the block? Meh, I dunno...
