hey man, I would go turbo, it's nice to see someone working on a d-series too
With$2500, you should go the Turbo route. Not really enough money to go N/A. You can pick up a turbo, get a R-ideal Gasket to lower your compression, ZEX cool temperature spark plugs, and easily run 8-10 psi on pump gas getting about 180-200 hps to the wheels with the right bolt-ons. YOu'll be happy with that, kicking an RSX-S's ass...92civichatch said:Whats up everyone, glad the site back on track! Well I decided that I'm gona get rid of my d15b7, and throw in a d16z6. I wanna be a little different and take the road less taken!! haha, I'm either gonna go low compression w/ turb or high comp all motor. What do you recomend, and if you have done either of these, how and what parts did you do it or use? I was gonna go with the greddy kit but I don't know how good it is!! Either way I want a high reving beast!! What do I need to go High Comp with a safe readline at 10k, looking to spend $2500 and build it myself, with the hepl of a machine shop. Also what kinda hp and tq numbers am I looking at either way! PLease help me out everyone thanxs, Chris
Damn is your keyboard broken or what? The caps lock key is just left of the A.mhardy said:WELL YOU CAN BOOST UP TO 8 PSI IF YOUR FUEL MIXTURE IS CORRECT AND BE OK ON STOCK INTERNALS, BUT UNTILL YOU GET PROPER FUEL MANAGEMENT I WOULDNT BOOST OVER 6.5 WHICH IS WHAT THE GREDDY BOOSTS FROM THE FACTORY
AND ALSO I WOULD REPLACE THE GASKET ON YOUR OIL PAN THE EXTRA PRESSURE FROM THE TURBO WILL CAUSE IT TO LEAK IF ITS VERY OLD AT ALL........GOOD LUCK ON THE D16 (REMEMBER YOU CAN MAKE A D16 A ROCKET IF YOU DO IT RIGHT )
Engines blow because of detonation. Honda engines can take the pressure as long as knocking does not occur. Four things:92civichatch said:8-10 psi on stock internal, I dunno, I've heard that hese motors can only handle up to 7psi, on stock inerds! what turbo kit you recomend, greddy?
