Default Question's for "B" build

Well I took the plunge, I have a 1989 civic DX hatch, Just bought two B motor's to make one complete engine. B20 and a stock B18 complete.
I do cylinder heads here in south Florida and was thinking of building the B20 up. my questions are as followed:
Whats the best Intake? Skunk2 or Edelbrock or others...
Whats the best cam, part # and brand please, for a daily driver? B20 motor will have 11:1 comp. and Fully ported cylinder heads for N/A set up, Has Eagle H-beam rods, JE pistons....
What kinda power do you think this thing will make? To the wheels, 225FWHP?

Thanks, Im new to this forum, but have been porting heads for quite a few years, since 1993. Also have worked with several shop's do their Cylinder Head Development. Toyota's, Nissan, Mitsu. and All American made stuff.
Most of the shop's build BIG HP builds, TURBO builds for the most part 1000RWHP + so don't have much to go by way of N/A Honda stuff.

Thanks, for your help guy's. Also would like to give anyone that's a member of the FORUM a 30% off all port work. Thanks, T-flow cylinder heads

With a PnP and a built head, non VTEC B's will usually be right above 200. The only people I know with fully built heads are running all Skunk2 valvetrain's, Skunk2 cams and gears. But you can get those numbers a little cheaper with other brands and still be reliable.

yes throttle body and intake manifold... i have some skunk 2 parts everyone has told me that skunk2 is the best but my research has told me different in some areas.. for instance skunk 2 doesnt make the best camber kits (found only by feedback not by experience).

Im talking strictly motor parts when I refer to Skunk2. Im not a fan of anything else they make.
