Ok, so after all my other problems, I'm keeping the teg while I attend UTI. But I need an engine, and if im gonna do another non-vtec engine im gonna go with a B20. I did search the boards and if possible maybe you guys could give me solid answers and the place you got the info from.
I read the B18B and B20 heads are exatly the same.
Question: Is there absolutely no difference between the two? no camshaft difference? Nothing at all?
I also read in the IM article that the two manifolds are different. Plainy just by looking they are. And its hard or impossible to use the B20 manifold without cutting the hood.
Question: Is using my old B18B intake better for the B20?, or because we dont have all the volume and
runner info is there no answer until we obtain it?
Do you need a(n) adjustable FPR or is it just a nice thing to have?
Becuase of displacement difference is there a change to the 7k redline of my b18? I dont see why there should be because you increased bore, but I'm not 100%
And in the future if a use my old head and do headwork to it for the B20 I will need to do tuning. But if I use a SRI or CAI, my B18B or a aftermarket IM, and my DC exhaust manifold and whatever exhaust using the stock head would I need to bring it to a tuner, do it myself with VAFC or should I just leave it?
Meltman:We here at TI all appreciate you trashing a perfectly good ITR engine because you're dumb.
Forced induction is NOT a fix for bad VE
B18Ch1ck: I am making noodles,they probably handle better than a DC5
