    ok so i have a b16a that i swapped into my 90 DA i have most bolts and i little head work done... my plan is to turbo it.. i heard b16s have great toloreces for boost.. should i keep my 16 tranny? or i have an ls i could use since it should work better with boost right being longer gearing? and what i have turbo, waste, gate, bov, all pipping, clamps, oil line, oil return line, intercooler, exaust mani, boost controller, boost gauge .. what else do i need? and how many psi is my safe range? any comment/idea welcome thanks

    i personally like the b16. i had one that would not blow apart.... with ur question, go with a gsr tranny. unless u plan on reving the hell outta that thing. an ls trans does have the longest gears, but u have to rev the motor so hard to keep it from falling out of vtec, that it would definately shorten the lifespan of the engine. the ammount of boost depends on the turbo u use. boost is not what kills a motor... horsepower is. i suggest you run a t3t4 hybrid. theyre common enough to find everywhere. much bigger than that and that lil b16 wont be able to spool until like 4500... i have a b16 tranny with an lsd in my turboed crx. i have to short shift the hell outta my car to get any hince of traction in 2nd gear. hope this helps...

    Skrotm I still want to see your rex bro. If your ever in Tally shoot a PM...

    OP- just bolt it up, get it tuned and try it out. if you don't like the wheel spin, swap in the LS trans.
    What size turbo are you looking for? .60 trim range? What power goals do you have? When do you want it to spool up? etc etc.

    Your kind of contradicting yourself.

    You know the whole, "fast, reliable, cheap -- pick two." saying...

    If thats what I was looking for I'd look at around a 60 trim turbo. maybe something a little smaller like a 57.
    -Use a good manifold (NOT a log) that will last you a good while (around $500)
    -Don't use crappy parts in general (ebay couplers, FMU, etc.).
    -Get GREAT tuning. This means EVERYTHING to your "reliable" aspect. Your engine will not last long on simple basemaps.

    Basically... Don't waste your money on crappy parts. Period.
    You'll have nothing but problems.

    Save your money, buy the parts 1 piece at a time, with a common goal in mind, so all the parts flow together. Be smart about it (the FIRST time), and do more research than you think you need to do.

    GL. Searching and research has just become your new hobby.

    If your concerned about money, don't turbo your car.

    Leave it stock and just drive it. Don't waste every dime you have on a cheap turbo kit, or on your car in general.

    Sometimes even with the best of parts and tuning, it takes money to maintain a boosted honda. He wasn't assuming, he was just telling you that if you don't have "ass loads" of money to spend, then don't boost it. But if 3 grand is less than ass loads for you, then I'd like to see your paycheck :)

    GOOD FAST CHEAP,
    you can pick only two.
    fast and cheap isn't good
    good and cheap isn't fast
    good and fast isn't cheap

    Read that. Again. and Again.

    You snap back at us for telling you how it is, but you keep contradicting yourself.

    (1) Ain't going to happen, pal. EVERYTHING you do to your motor to make more power will take away from it's life.
    (2) Like I said (to which you so rudely snapped back at me about) :

    (3) Kinda goes along with the "more power" thing. Every time you redline your motor you put a considerable amount of wear compared to just daily driving it.


    Again. If your concerned about costs, power, and reliability... Think twice about doing major mods to your car (such as a FI system).

    -Andrew
