If you live in az aka arid desert I'd reconsider itbs on a daily driver. Also steer clear of obx if your going to itb atleast spend the money and get quality. I know drivability and quality are not the azht way but its my way lol.

I'd just do bolt ons like header,exhaust,intake and tune. Than save for higher comp or turbo.

im piecing my k swap part by part slow and painful but at least ill have a kswap i hope. im thinking of leaning toward a k20a3 even though its 30 hp under a a2. if ive been reading right the a3 has enough lower compression to make a decent turbo motor with stock internals. i assume no more then 7-10 psi? if i go k20a3 can i bolt on any k series tranny? like a 5 speed or 6 speed i dont thing im gonna pay for the lsd version ty for all your help so far

I'd reconsider using ITB's on any daily driven car, I'd only use them on an all track car. The power you would gain over a well balanced engine with a nice manifold would be marginal at best. The reason I see people doing this is for the wow factor when they pop their hoods and/or obsession with having the "best." The money you'd spend on them and tuning would be better spent other places and would bring you way more power.

I'm confused, you want ITB's but then come back and say you are going for a K20A3 and maybe go boost. Was the OBX ITB's the only brand on your wishlist? The only ITB's that would be worth it would be something like Hayward or Toda and those will cost more than a stock K20A/A2/Z1/Z3 long block. You want boost or ITB's but don't want to get an LSD? I think you are shopping for the wrong series of engine.
