Im using a FSWerks style log manifold, and i went with the 20 because i did not find a 23 untill i got all my parts. Then i was pissed LOL! But everything turned out great plus there are more built 23's out there so its good to be different sometime.

why not? thats the real question. his car came with a 2.0, why not stick with that? why go through the trouble of switching to a 2.3?

Thats like me asking you why build an Auto? because you want to.
