    I am currently building a B18C and I am turbocharging it, I was wonderong on advice on what bits I absolutely need to get the engine runing correctly. My quiries were do I need
    Bigger injectors or could I run an extra injector with a hop switch
    Camgears, adjustable
    Metal head Gasket
    I have an Apexi VAFC fuel computer, will that be sufficiant or will I need to run a bigger computer like motec or wolfe

    ANY ADVICE OR IDEAS WOULD BE GREAT

    THANKS B)

    extra injectors suck... stick to upgrading the 4 you have. depending on how big you are going, 440s, 550s, 720s will hold 90% of the turbo setups out there.
    toda cam gears
    you really dont need the headgasket either...

    IMO, a vafc is a pos and is not suitable to tune a boosted application. Plenty of people do it, but a lot of them blow up. I would not put 5 psi on a small ass turbo on my car without hondata or aem ems TUNED with a wide band o2 on a dyno. but thats me.
    motec is kinda going crazy IMO- its bad ass... but its also a shit load of cash
