    Ecu upgrade- Rev limiter at 9xxx rpm's?? Or Aem's or Emanager or Hondata whcih one good for a non-vtec turbo motor?
    Wastegauge-Tail-exturnal

    woooah boy. alright. That will be a pretty unstoppable setup if it all gets put together correctly, but so far the only thing I see is that you have nitrous + turbo + stroke. Now, I would reccomend putting the whole turbo/b18 together before you add nitrous. nitrous will only complicate and already complicated process. And since your swapping the whole thing, just keep the tranny from the b18.... no need for conversions. I doubt you really want the del sol tranny? It's just making things more complicated than they need to be. b18 trannys are easy to come by and relatively inexpensive. As far as *safe* psi, from that turbo, it all depends on how build your engine is. I don't see anything like that on your list. For the most power and reliability, your going to want a resleeve/block guard, titanium valve springs, retainers, valves etc. I'm not a turbo size expert, but a 20g is pretty large. I would guess your max would be somewhere around 20 psi with a fully built motor, but that part I am not sure about. As far as what it can handle stock - with that turbo I would say only 5-9 psi, and even that might be pushing the limits. But keep in mind with a large turbo, 5-9psi is still quite a bit. I think that turbo pushes soming like 650CFMs, thats pretty high

    thanx for ur input. I know the turbo was kind of a long shot. And probly should not go any bigger then probly a 16g turbo,if i wana run a safe system. But just a long shot out their,lol <_< and just picked it because im still looking at turbo's and stuff and still reaching and nos would be their to start up the turbo and cut turbo lag :lol: . but thank u for ur input

    look in the forced induction section for the big post on Turbo lag..... It basically says turbo lag problems are in people's heads. It's all how you set it up. I would reccomend building the motor either way though. Ie upgraded internals and bottom end

    hello, i have a 94 del sol with a b18b1 and have a custom turbo setup. i use a small turbo from an eclipse (td04) and boost is set at 7psi. which is good enough for mustangs, z 28, ram air's! i use the stock trannie wich i think is perfect for boost because of the longer gears which allows you to stay at max boost for longer...atleast it feels that way! stick with the ls trannie not the stock del sol. i have no fuel managment but it would help. well if i can help in n e way just let me know. later... :spin:

    1. you don't need a cable conversion the 92+ civic/delsol used a hydraulic clutch,like the B18B,so you need a hydraulic B series tranny

    2. You need axles from a 94+ B series motor,the delsol (except the B16A3 model) has D series motors and those are not compatible.

    3.Use the mounts that came with the motor.HAsport,only has a couple unnescessary replacement mounts for this,not needed for the swap.

    4.Like the axles,you need B series shiftlinkage,but it has to be from a B16A3 delsol since they are a different length and shape than the civic/teg shiftlinkage.
