I'm here in Fayetteville, Ga. I put a B20A in my 91 2.0 Si cause the engine was shot.If you want something with a little more oomph, Then I;m sure they'll be a ton of guys to steer you in the right direction.Had to keep the original intake and exhaust cause we have emissions in this county.

All the counties that surround Atlanta have emissions. Nowhere else in the state.

Usually the valves can be changed and the head re-used. The valves will bend before any damage occurs to the pistons. Or swap out the head if you have a shop around you.
