    um, like i said in the last post i made..... the car is fuel injected. i don't understand why that it seems hard to believe that a 87 si is fuel injected???

    HKS made a turbo kit for it



    which I had


    but sold :(



    swap a D16A1 in it, and get an 88+ SOHC turbo kit...you've just got to portmatch the manifold

    you stock harness with a stock 86-87 (Integra) PG7 and some check valves or an FMU will work...pre OBD ECU's are easy to fool


    I'm using a standalone, but that requires some wiring


    The thing with the D16A1 swap is you've got to change the motor, tranny, linkage, axles, and front hubs...the axles don't fit in the CRX hubs
    -but you come out with bigger brakes up front
