    turbo and tune it. call it a day. if you don't want to turbo it, get a gsr head, good cams, and get some tuning done.

    isn't a gsr head is a vtec, so should i replace my rod bolts before i do that, vtec will rev to around 8500, and b20's are known as far as i know for have bad rod bolts to rev it that high, or is that just a myth?

    all of the cr/vtec issues i have seen, is people blowing head gaskets, and that is because they don't put them together right or don't use honda stuff. you are going to be just as reliable as stock if you build it right. yes, i would use a gsr or b16 vtec head. your rod bolts should be fine, i have just heard about the b20 having weak cylinder walls.

    weak cylinder walls is the big myth I've heard. But if you aren't turbocharging it some rediculous amount, you will be fine. I'd replace the rod bolts with ARP bolts, and get them resized, but you don't have to.
