    because more displacement > less displacement

    and...

    more displacement = more torque

    Yuu can sell the B16 and pick up a b20 long block... you might want to keep your intake manifold though because some of the B20s come with a manifold that will interfere with your hood.

    just take a b20 block, put the PR3 head and keep the tranny, I am assuming you have a Si tranny, cheapest way,

    Yeah, and you'll spend hella cash to get hella powah outta da hella tiny hella whiny hella underpowered B16... hella more cash than you would spend on the hella cheap B20 bottom end with some hella high compression pistons.

    hella annoying and thats why we be usin hella lota hellas lately y0.

    but seriosuly,

    a stroker kit = mad loot. and you're NOT going to hit 2.0L without a 3" deckplate. and that = even more hella loot.

    just buy a b20 bottom end. you can get one for like 3-400 bucks. then performa the cr/vtec steps

    1. 96-00 CR-V B20B/B20Z blocks
    2. Need a mount kit, brackets for power steering and AC if you want to keep them, axles, transmission etc.
    3. Probably $2000-3000 properly installed if you take it to someone and you're lucky- less if you do it yourself.

    You'll get more power and torque from a good junkyard turbo setup on the 1.6 than you will from a straight B20 swap.
