hey im about to purchase a b20 bare block this week. i still havent decided how im going to build it up. as far as N/A or turbo. if i go turbo id most likely leave it non vtec so i can have less problems and financial budget. but what internals should i use. would an itr or gsr crankshaft be benefiticial to me? help me out with some idea
thanks in advance

no not really, the cranks are very similiar, except your b20 crank dives out a tad more displacement.

and also you have a larger bore :)

what can i do to put out better numbers and keep my displacement

by better numbers are you talking about horsepower? just build the motor for either n/a or turbo which ever you choose. as for displacement, 2.0L is fine, it's 84.5mm. If you're not happy with that I guess you could have it bored and honed to 85mm but I don't really know how big of a difference it will be. 86mm and up is usually for all motor cars though.
