Hi! Newbie Question. Im using R18 Engine right now. Is it possible to do a R18 block with an R20 Head? My Only mods are Full Exhaust And Aftermarket Short Ram Air Intake.

Out of curiosity is this even advantageous? I don't know anything about the R series engines, but with the vtec engines its traditionally been the smaller displacement motors that have higher cfm heads.

If you’re talking about a 9th gen R18(Z1) and an ILX(fancy 9th gen) R20(A1) don’t waste your time, they’re the same head, I have both of them torn apart sitting side by side, and there’s no difference in the heads...

The only reason the R20 heads “flow better” is because they use a 3 stage intake manifold instead of the 2stage that R18’s use
