Default A b16 VTEC head on a b20 block.. help??

Hey guys, I've heard of Frank engines (short for Frankenstien engines) where you swap the heads and blocks of diffent engines in the Honda B series to create your own custom ****.. I just ran by an engine and I wanted to know if it's a good idea.. it's a b16 VTEC head on a b20 block (from a CRV). I wanna drop this into my CRX but I don't know if it's a good idea.. also do ya'll recommend putting a DRAG Gen 3 Turbo kit on it when it's complete.. any info on this swap or the turbo would be great.. thanks in advance

That will be a great idea, I'm also doing this in the coming months, but for more info check out www.crvtec.com . Place for good info on the swap.

make sure you build the block and not half *** on it. Those swaps are AWESOME..but it can go bad easily if you don't build it properly

I'm building a b20/vtec for my crx to compete in honda-challenge as well

those motors make some good power, but it all depends on how its built. getting it built right will cost you some $$$.

Here's another site that should help. http://www.c-speedracing.com/howto.html (just scroll down a little bit) Also are you going to be building the engine or buying an engine already put together? Build your own or buy from a reputable shop and get it done right the first time. hth

My suggestion... worry about getting the b20 W/OUT vtec into your car. Get it all straightened out & then go w/ a turbo. When you have all that under your belt & settled... then worry about a vtec head.

Going from 112 hp to 330 hp is insane if you have never dealt w/ it before.

Good luck,

Pete

Here you go:

B20z/type R with 11:1 CR pushing 900kg of CRX

Bhp? 230-240 (still running P30)
Torque? Shitloads of them
Fast? No doubt, kills 300bhp E36 M3

here are some b20vtec dynos, along with a bunch of others. keep in mind though that they did not just simply put a vtec head on crv block.
