that's teh vid...the civic had a b16b head and a b20b block. now my question is..i've been reading all this time about how b20's weren't really strong and the sleeves are too thin and all that. so why is this hatch revving the motor all the way to almost 10,000 rpm's? i mean yeah, the pistons were replaced, but that was the only thing upgraded with the block...anybody have info on this?

its not that its impossible to rev high on a b20 motor..
its that most peopl edont do the build right and automatially expect the motor to rev to 8 9k and run fine...
no matter what he tells u he got shyt done to the block..all the safeguards to make sure it can rev that high..

thats why people say its all in the build ;)
