MX-5's of the same CR can run around 15psi - ish, so with built bottom end you should be looking at that I would've thought...

Have fun! :cool:

sorry man. I've only had boost on the B16A.

somewhere between 10-15lbs would be my guess, but as always your results may vary.

Proper fuel delivery is a must.

start low, and work high.

A/F meters are useless. Get yourself a good EGT.

the 15lbs was sorta gettin too balzy..you need some injectors, BTM,ignition at least..lots of people will tell you that over 12lbs you NEED a standalone..so id stick with 12lbs and then you can boost higher at the track. Just because your bottom is build dont mean it wont break if your leaning out. Im gonna help my friend rebuild (#4 on his car) cause he melted some JEs leaning out.

I have the MSD BTM and a fuel pump. You recommend injectors, and a stand alone? What else. I got a fuel rail coming.

no need for a stand alone unless you plan on boosting really high, with the injectors, fuel rail and a FPR I think you can take it up to 15psibut like indy said take it up bit by bit not all at once.

sorry that was me on my friends sn..as for running 15lbs with no standalone....you need to get a different disk for your FMU, (i assume your running 12:1..cause 12psi with every lb of boost @ 15psi is 180ish MORE psi than stock, this will cause your injectors to sieze Id run some 440s and like a 6:1 or 8:1 disk..hondata is alot of $$ but people on other web boards say you really need em. (www.honda(dash)tech.com) the FI forum is really good. If you run 12psi with no standalone I personally think you will be fine...but its not my motor if it blows..once your setup, go tune somewhere where they have a wideban o2 sensor..good luck dude.

Just make sure to tune that bad boi. Engine management will just help tune it close to perfect. Hondata makes some kick ass shit, I believe it runs for about $1k which is pretty good for what it offers. Just make sure you have it tuned with proper fuel. :)
