20b NA swap

Hi there! At work my soldering station blew up so I had time to do nothing and just think and come up with some unuseful ideas(like the wasted apark thread I posted :D ). Basically I was thinking what the car will be like if i swap a 20b in it in NA config and put some things from the 13b-msp like s-dias, rotors to have bigger compression and do some porting to enlarge the ports and tune it to this configuration. What do you guys think?

Unless you have a literal mountain pile of cash right beside you, I think it's the best for this to stay on paper...

It was from Proís kit, we already use Weller for like 3 years without a problem and the Proskits are problematic, something blew up in it and it caught on fire. At my work it runs every day so... And out there in the world are NA 4 rotors so why not 3 rotor NA :D

I said I dont want to build it, I donít have that much money. But as a idea how much power can something like that have? 200kw 250Nm? :D

The Speedsource cars claim 450hp, but they're not exactly working with OEM parts or real world drivability constraints. Who needs S-DAIS when the car spends its entire useful life above 6,000 rpm.

So for the real world and with OEM parts and reliable and streetable, it can be somewhere around 350hp?

If someone can give me the NA 20b them I can build some primitive ECU that can handle the ignition, fuel injection and some kind of small fuel maps, but thats just my creative mind. In real world only 1/10 of think I came up with will be realised :D

well a renny is
2 rotor na = 200whp; potato wtq

since I'm bad at math 1 rotor renny style is 100whp; half a spud wtq
so..

3 rotor = 300whp; curley fries wtq

200 whp is optimistic. I think stock is about 180 whp and 130 wtq.

And remember that this is also realized by the very good intake design of Renesis. The older NA FC makes much less power stock.

So I am going to say that 270 whp can be possible, but you have to engineer the intake properly and that's very difficult. Otherwise there will be less power.

it's not that optimistic new and/or healthy engine with all the bolt ons and a tune will get ~190-205hp

also you would have to make custom header, intake and tune for a hybrid engine anyways so that right there would be the "restrictions"
