You know what I can't believe? That no one has had the handle "L20" before this guy?! :P You're lucky you're new, I would have mentioned the tall and short block L20s and the extra model with the double balance shaft. :D But we're supposed to be nice to newbs.

To be clear, L20 differs from L20B. The four-cylinder is 'L20B' and the six-cylinder is L20. But since they didn't sell the small 2-liter six here, well we know what you meant.


If you go to a Nissan/Datsun car show, you might see an L20. It was the standard engine for the Z-car in Japan.

When I see L20 I assume it's the 6 cylinder as it was built first in '67. (or so) The same displacement 4 cylinder (built about 8 years later) had to be designated as an L20- B to differentiate. Seeing as how the L20 was the only one of it's kind when built, it was never called an L20A . If it's called an L20A now it's only because of the L20B.
