B16 or B20?

Swampnuts

Stay out the swamp.
well in my opinion any b series is reliable, thats one of the reasons why they are popular. if it were me i'd go with the b16, 160hp vs 142hp, but i believe the b16 has less torque, still more powerful overall

B20z hands down. B16 and b20 with the same trans will put the b20 ahead every time.

I've never been a fan of the B16. Back when my d16 had just bolt on's I used to walk 99-00 SI's all day,from a roll and a dig. Afterwords everyone would make me open the trunk and hood so they could check to see if I had a bottle or something hidden on the car.

B20 with a B16 transmission and LSD. You'll pull on B16's all day long.

More torque + shorter geared transmission negates the ~20hp difference.

Boosted B20. Or B20 Vtec.

I'm not super impressed with the B16. It has more top end, but I like torque. But that's just me.
