I'm going to be getting a b20 and adding on a turbo, and I was wondering I know the ls head is better, but is there really a difference? I know that the cams are different, so could I just save money and buy ls cams or should i just swap for the ls head?
Originally posted by TRuggiero_@Feb 26 2003, 02:53 PM I would definately change the head, not only does the B20 head flow for shyt, have pretty much 0 powerband, it's not vtec too. You can't switch the cams though cause 1.8L cams won't fit a 2.0L.
why dont you go into detail about how much more the ls head flows than the b20 head? The intake manifold is different, and you would need a different one anyways cause the crv one wont clear a civic hoodline.
Hmm, I guess you'd be right. But I never said anything about using an LS head. If it were my B20, I wouldn't waste my time using an LS head, I'd get a vtec one. Because as you said, they are the same heads.
Im going for a B20 turbo as well. At this point, i want to worry about tuning the turbo end first. I dont want to have to fuck with VTEC and turbo. Isnt the B20 head the same as an LS with diffrent cams? I was thinking about just port\polish the head, throw some cams at it and get a GS-R intake port\polish.
ok..what's the deal with the v-tec heads? i thought v-tec's main function was for lessened gas consumption...i know it also adds a lil' bit of power when it kicks in..but is it worth it to pay more for v-tec?
