    considering the cars are simular weight it should be alright but the prob with the rb20 is that due to the capacity it lacks torque

    so to get anywhere or produce power you need to rev the engine really hard and if you drop off boost the car is guttless

    If you want an rb20 stroke it to a 2.4 otherwise go a 30 bottom end with a 25 head
