    Well its done. Took a while because I did it after work and in between other stuff that I needed to make.

    Stock 1990 CRX SI D16A6
    [​IMG]

    Custom cross member and radiator support made by me.
    [​IMG]

    Intercooler mounted
    [​IMG]

    Some charge pipe fitment.
    [​IMG]

    Manifold and DP I made.
    [​IMG]

    Assembled

    Greddy Knock off

    Done

    Setup
    Garrett T3/T04B .48 exhaust "S" trim from Hotrex (bought from Blaast performance)
    Mini ram horn manifold made by me
    2nd gen DSM 450's from Ebay
    PM6 chipped by me running Turbo edit
    Charge pipes made by me from www.LSDmotorsports.com
    Oil line kit from www.LSDmotorsports.com
    Bar and plate intercooler from www.LSDmotorsports.com
    Autommeter Ultralite Boost gauge from the HMT classifieds
    3" Stainless Steel Downpipe made by me
    Turbonetics Creep gate from the HMT classifieds
    Greddy Knock off BOV from Ebay
    Custom Traction Bar/Crossmember made by me
    6 puck sprung clutch from www.LSDmotorsports.com (not installed yet)
    All said and done it cost less than $1000 to buy the car and build the turbo kit. It runs very well thanks to Jordan (Mahcivic) lending me a .bin for my PM6. I tried to make a basemap but I suck at turboedit I guess. Its only at 5 psi because of an exhaust leak before the turbo. I didn't get my gasket in time so I made one out of sheetmetal. It didn't work that good and I ran out of time. One more minute and I would have been divorced! I didn't want to drive it open downpipe too long. My 3" Kteller exhaust should be here by Wednesday I hope.

    Special Thanks:
    HMT for all the supprt and ideas
    Mike at www.LSDmotorsports.com for coming through with all the parts.
    Hotrex for lending time and fab help
    Ne3ek for helping get that pile of shit BOV to work
    Mahcivic for a good running .bin

    Lastly my wife who tolerates this ridiculous hobby of mine!

    Actually I'm new at TurboEdit. OBD0 sucks. I have always run Uberdata and I always tune myself. I actually Dyno tune locally.

    I dont own the dyno. I'm only the Honda/Acura consultant. I do all the chipping. I also do OBDI GM chipping. The place I do work for is very expensive. They do mostly Corvettes. www.jandmmotorsports.com Mike owns the place and tunes like a mad man. He is the best around for domestics. He tunes Mustangs like you read about.

    if you need some pointers with TE let me know too.. its kinda gay, esp with the map over-lay deal, but hey, it beats the hell out of the hack.

    here's a bin i made for a pm6-zc running a SSautoshit setup on their super-70 with dsm 550's

    check the injector option to drop to 450's and give it a run... watching the wideband of course :p

    Thanks I'll check it out. The map I am starting with has a lot of street tuning on it. Jordan spent many hours with his PLX on this map.
