its really a matter of opinion, i love the bseries, specifically the b18c5 for the rediculous amout of power made for a 1.8l but apparently the new b series is the k series, specifically the k20z3, the only major differences are that the b has a timing belt while the k has a chain, and the b series has a twin cam vtec that has a mean sounding crossover, while the k series has a DOHC head, with vtec only on the intake cam and it also has variable valve timing added to the intake cam as well

No. The designation "B20" refers to quite a few Honda engines and even a terrible engine found in 3rd generation Preludes.

The B20 block with a B18 or B16 head is a terrific engine.
