Ok, I have heard both ways. I would like to know for sure if the B20B or B20Z is open or closed deck. I know that every other B block is open deck. I am researching for considerations on putting vtec head on one of these blocks and turbo as well.

SO.....if you know please post a pic if possible. Otherwise, this may just turn into a verbal debate.

Thank you for your help guys!:D

Not all H-series are closed, i cant think of exact years off the top of my head but i think the early versions were closed and the newer versions are open.
