That's completely unrealistic. Bandwidth wise, grin scales worse than bitcoin,
with transactions taking well over 2KB, mostly due to rangeproofs.
Your block full of 20K tx would take a monstrous 400MB, and a grin full node
would have need a bandwidth of over 3456 GB / day.
Even a minimal client keeping only the 32 byte transaction kernels
(which can't be pruned) would need storage space of 2TB per year.
