See though yours is built up right, so it's definitely all good. It's boosting on 11:1 compression and not building up the internals that strikes me as pretty damn stupid. You're still a *** though.itr206 said:boosted type R's are for ****'s
your an idiot and nothing you said is true whatso ever.White98LS said:Ok I don't wanna start any fights here, but seriously, why boost an expensive high-CR engine on stock internals when you can boost a low-CR engine for much cheaper?
To me, boosting an ITR engine on stock internals is dumb for a few reasons:
1. The freakin' swap costs over $4k usually. As opposed to an LS swap which is maybe $1k and comes with more turbo-friendly gearing and much lower compression. And if you blow the thing up, that's another extra few grand you get to spend.
2. 11:1 simply is not good for boost. Sure, it can be worked with and made decent with a lot of tuning, but there's just less potential than a low-CR engine. Why do you think factory turbo cars have 8-9:1 C/R's?? Why do you think all the badass, high-hp 11-second turbo Hondas have low compression?? It's certainly not worth spending many times MORE money to get higher compression for turbo....
3. VTEC is great for all-motor high-rpm hp but isn't as big of an advantage with boost. Neither is an 8400-rpm redline - useful but not incredibly important unless you're going for truly huge numbers in a mainly-for-the-strip car.
4. For the cost of a stock ITR motor swap, you could have a B18B swap, resleeved and fully built bottom end, which is much MUCH stronger, so you can run real boost and not this 5,6,7psi BS.
I'm not trying to start anything here, I'm just giving some simple reasoning as to why a turbo JDM ITR motor wouldn't be the best idea on stock internals. You can tell me that it can be made to work and work well all you want - I'm just saying it's not the BEST way to go at all. Unless you build it up the right way and strengthen the bottom end - I'm not even a fan of turbo LS on stock internals.... or turbo FWD's for that matter, but that's just personal opinion and people should do what they like.
I know my last 10 posts have been completely useless and not helpful at all.
But i just felt like participating, and i am a bit drunk.
BTW, sup tegXTR, i live across the street from your work...LOL
