    Hi all , Im thinking of building a b20/vtec . I just got a itr block and im not happy with it , i have a b16a head on the block with ctr cams, and i still not happy.

    so im thinking of pulling the head off and puting it on a b20 block with je pistons ...

    what would the power be with this set up..... and would this be a good idea?????

    if your thinking of staying n/a, just get the block sleeved and take it to 84-85mm, run some high compression pistons-> 12:1, get some stronger rods, and get your head ported. add a skunk2 IM with a larger throttle body, and your good to go.

    that motor would own.

    whatever you do keep the ITR block

    b16 head and ITR head are of the same cast.

    that 'splains it. i was under the impression that you'd ditched the itr head for a b16 head.

    There is no way to know how much power you'll get. It all depends on condition of the motor and your set-up.

    If you wanna get rid of the ITR block, i'm sure plenty of people here will take it off your hands for you...
