there is a shop about and hour from me that is doing this with a 2002 coupe and an RSX motor. Im not sure if its the base or the type S, but they got a 2001 or 2002 civic coupe with a blown motor, and bought a totalled RSX with no damage to the drivetrain from an auction. There building it right now though thats all i know.1Fast99Si said:The new CRV with the i-VTEC has a 2.4 liter engine. I'd love to throw that in a new 2002 civic coupe and then turbo it. Talk about a beast in a car that is hurting for some power.
Taken directly from crvtec's site "The B20 blocks, the bore is 84 mm. and most B series VTEC cylinder heads, the bore is 81 mm. This means that if you were to use a B16A head, there will be a small lip around the top of the deck created by the smaller cylinder head. This difference will affect performance and increase the chance for detonation. If you don't take advantage of the breathing afforded by the larger bore (opening the chamber up), you're losing a lot of the benefits of the combination."dumpsi said:MUGENSI00, what kind of mods are you getting for $14k and what your hoping to break in the 1/4 mile?
since your doing a fully built b20/vtec, i guess you'll bore out your head to match the b20 block. i dunno should i bore out my head to match the b20 block because im in a budget rite now and i want to do a b20/vtec and i want to know should i do that? what could happen if i dont bore my head? is it really really recommended because i know some people who didnt bore out there head and it's running fine but some people tell me that if i dont bore my head it could cause detonation. is that true?
