I have seen B20B4s, B20B3s, and B20Z2s. Don't worry about the last number, focus on the letter, B or Z.
Characterized by the tall intake manifold. aka the tunnel ram, or the giraffe
B20B vs 94+ LS intake manifold.
Intake manifold is low and more LS like.
What is that thing on top?
The idea is that the "resonator" chamber works like long runners and a larger plenum
when the pressure waves travel back up the intake from the ports.
Compared to the giraffe manifold this gives good top end and good midrange grunt.
This probably fills in the low-midrange hole we see on a B20 using an LS manifold
There is probably a performance draw back to this system in the upper 6k+ rpm range,
otherwise wouldn't see this box on the ITR manifold also?
The B20Z comes with a knock sensor. B20B has no knock sensor.
A slight dish shape on the piston. Be careful, the intake valve reliefs are not sufficient in size for a VTEC head.
Almost a flat top piston. Again, the intake valve reliefs are not sufficient in size for a VTEC head.
The B20B/Z head looks to be the same as a B18B (P75) head. The combustion chamber bore is 81mm, while the block and head gasket are 84mm.
Stock B20 exhaust manifolds look like an extreme case of cost cutting.
Constructed of two pieces of stamped steel and quickly splatter-welded together. Throw it out right away. So far it seems that any B series exhaust manifold fits, such as a B18C or B16A. Also, the JDM Honda ITR 4-1 fits well.
