    I need some help I've never worked with a tubo charged car. I need info on what i need to do to my b16a2 block and head for it to be able to handle about 15 pounds safely. I need to Know things like the best compression to go with where to find engine kits and pretty much anything you can think of.

    what kind of turbo are you planning on using. if you havent decided on a turbo, what kind of horsepower goal have you set.

    15psi means different things on different turbos....

    youre in the right range...the only thing i can think of is just changing rods and pistons (i recommend eagle rods and je pistons...also CP and Wiseco are good quality pistons as well).

    A T3/04E 57 trim 60/60 sounds good for your goal. youll probably be a little past the 18 psi mark, but i really couldnt say off the top of my head.

    I say t3 t04e turbo with a .57/.63 will do the job with 15psi. Then again management is the key to safe horsepower.
