  1. K24A2 head on k20a3 block

    Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    I was wondering if anyone knows if a k24a2 head will go onto a k20a3 block without any issues? Some people say something about valve to piston clearance but that doesn't make sense to me. I know the k20a2 head will work and they are almost the same but k24a2 head is about half the price in my area.
