    I would like to know if anyone out there has an old kit laying around that will fit directly to my car... i can make a few mods to it if i need to, im using a DSM t-25. i would also like to know what injectors i should use and if i need to do anything to the wireing to make the injectors work. also i have the fuel pump off the eclipse i got the turbo from... would it benifit any if i even used it and how would i wire that up....... thanks.

    wow. no one searches anymore. all your questions are covered in the "turbo information" section at the top of the front page of this site under "building a homemade turbo kit". but since you probably wont look, ill tell you instead. for the fuel pump, buy a walbro 255. i need to double check, but im pretty sure its stock# gss342. direct plug in on civ's/ac's. its about $90 shipped. application specific piping kits for your car run $125-$150 shipped, and come with a bov flange already welded on! for injectors you need at least 440cc. you can get precision 440s new for $200 or less shipped. dont F with dsm injectors/resistor box, youre just setting yourself up for more possibility of failure--theyre used! but if you have to, theres great writeups all over the web. check out homemadeturbo.com. full of great DIY boost info. the guys there can be a little abrasive, though, just to warn you.

    Scrap the eclipse fuel pump, buy a walbro, they're cheap. I went to radio shack and bought some resistors and just wired them directly into the harness so I could use the DSM injectors

    was it easier/cleaner than a dsm/resistor box setup? what size resistors did you use?

    I don't remember and am too lazy to search, just do some research for which resistors. It was extremely easy and it was a clean install.
