    Im new to the honda world and I have a couple of questions. I have a 1990 Civic hatch and Im going to install a B18b1. I have done some research on building the motor and have found that I should have the head port and polished, Skunk 2 intake manifild, crower 403 cams, header, and adjustable cam gears. I read that the pistons of choice are the JDMBA P30 pistons.

    Now for the question......

    I would also like to turbo the car......would the above be good for a turbo motor....such as the pistons? Also can anyone tell me some good sites for which turbo to use. Any advise on builing the motor or turbo's would be greatly appreciated.

    you can safely boost the car to about 6 lbs daily. Anymore, its die more than likely. 9.2:1 Compression is good for boost.

    Couple problems with the proposed mods...
    Cams - get 62403T's or 62404T's these are for Turbo Apps.
    Header - on a boosted engine? If you go boost you should not waste the money on a NA header, you'll need a turbo manifold.
