    Torque? Hondas don't make that :lol:

    Do some searching around. There are tons of b20 VTEC builds on the internet.

    your not going to get b16 pistons in a B20, B20 is 84mm bore and a B16 is a 81mm bore.

    if you get a 11.5:1 comp on a B20 vtec and cam it you should find what your looking for.

    Torque monster.....not so much. If you want torque you need Nitrousoxide.

    look into H22 with a h2b setup, thats another option.

    as far as making all motor lsvtec or b20vtec... its one of those things that is only really worth doing if you can afford to do a complete build. doing a cheap build where you just throw a vtec head on is pretty pointless, you would be better off with a gsr or type r motor really.

    If you're planning on swapping a K into the car you might want to go ahead and start saving instead of spending money on another motor.

    JRSC a b series if you want a torque monster.

    an internally stock lsvtec is not all that. id rather just have a stock gsr motor by a long shot. and yes, like 99sidude said, the only honda i have ever been in that you could really describe as torquey was when i had a JRSC on my integra. with a jrsc setup you can get a vtec b series motor to the neighborhood of 250whp that is instantly there all the time, every gear. and it could be done cheaper than going K.

    My two cents.. Throw an entire ls engine/trans in there for as cheap as possible for the dd duties... Save up and then go k series... If you build up an engine "in the meantime" for when you go k, you will spend waaay more than you could ever sell it for, resulting in a loss... Never a good thing when trying to build a car...

    They are getting harder and harder to find. I've been passively looking for one for awhile now.

    I've come across aftermarket B16 pistons cast in 84mm. Check out eBay, I think that's were I saw them. But, correct me if I'm wrong, can't you not really change B20 pistons without sleeving it?

    You can, i ran CP pistons in my b20vtec with stock sleeves for a couple years, most of that time with a JRSC on there. Problems only arose when i went turbo and decided to do a high speed pull...

    I have had a b20vtec for years now, and have done tons of research on them. From what i gather, they are fine to about 300whp if properly tuned. After that cracked sleeves are only a matter of time.
