    Hey, I am looking to turbo my B16. I am thinking just a slight turbo (5-6psi) that is cheap and comes in a kit. I am new to the turbo, I was thinking supercharger, but that is 2 expensive. I am going to install all myself, and I know my way around a motor, but i still have a couple of questions. 1) do I need to have an intercooler or can I get by without one? 2)are there any complete cheap kits that run under 2k? 3) Any heads up? I want this to be a daily driver. 4) what management shit do I need for fuel? thanks everyone

    Don't buy a kit, peice together your own. USE AN INTERCOOLER for its low price you'll be satisfied (ebay).

    Heres a list of what you will need:
    Turbo (get a t3)
    intercooler (dsm will work)
    BOV (you don't need it but its a safety thing, and is for longevity of the turbo)
    Piping (custom piping is neccasary)
    Injectors (DSM will also work)
    FMU (ebay)
    Manifold (revhard)
    missing link (ebay)

    I know I'm forgeting something, But all that can be had for under 2k, and will defenitly be able to be daily driven, i say up the boost to about 7-8 psi though. i can't even estimate the numbers you'll get but maybe 250.
    As I said DSM injecotrs and a FMU will work fine, as long as you use the missing link, or you can buy hondata and some DSm injecotrs.

    no shaft play at all. it's a little dirty but it's completely rebuilt and has the waste gate on it.

    $150 plus shipping.
