It'd be great if you add a 23 manifold w/ a 23 head & get the imtv to work on a 20 car. You'd need the pcm from a 23 car & if your there, I'd install the 23 motor too. I'd be figuring out the costs involved= the head, I/M & the pcm vs the whole 23 motor. The grunt vs the cost. Do a BSD plug & that gets you more & holds more oil too. Say if the head/manifold & pcm is say 800. & for a little more say 500. gets you a 23= Thats what I be doing then. Add a set of mild cams, add a bsd plug, header & tune to start w/ & then your wondering= I come I didn't do this before?
