    New here and hopefully I can get some good help and we can build my crx I just recently purchased to run VERY impressive times.

    Alright...I want to swap a B18C1 into my 89 Crx...Now I have a couple of months before I have enough money to swap (I'm going to save up around 5k atleast, but willprobably be more...much more) so in the mean time I would like to find out every bit of info I can about the swap and the parts I will need. I would like to learn it well enough before I begin to seriously start looking to order that I could pretty much do the swap step by step in my head. If someone who has done this can help me I would greatly appreciate it. I plan on doing a write-up before hand and then do a step by step along with pics when I actually do the swap. But like I said I need y'alls help to do it good.

    Now as far as the parts go I want to be able to know specifically what parts I need and shit. I'd like to build up the engine as strong as possible for boost because the way I want to do it is save enough money to get the engine swap, build up the engine as well as possible for boost, and boost it. (like I said...much more than 5k) and then when I have all the parts...THEN swap it.

    So let's see where we can take this.

    89 crx si
    b18c1
    turbo

    Thanks all...
    Brian

    Also what's everything that you can do to an engine to build it up for turbo? From what I've been reading the B18C1 is one of the best for a turbo. But I want to replace anything and everything to build it up the best/reliable way for turbo. That was the reason for making this thread. I figured I wouldn't get much of a response at first until I really got into what I am asking about. What I would like to do is find like a non-working B18 for cheap and then build it up, because some of the parts that I'd be replacing would be in good condition and so I would just be wasting money.

    Thanks all
    brian

    how much power are you trying to make? what's the primary use of the car? Is 5grand all you have to get the motor and turbo?

    well I want it to be very reliable...no I have more than 5k...like I said I understand I will be spending more than that. Not sure on how much power wise. I would like to run in the 11s though.

    Here is what I am wanting to figure out. I want to build the engine up the best way for boost. What I was thinking is finding a fucked up GSR from a junkyard or something just so that I could mainly get the block and what not for the engine really cheap (if I plan on replacing all the internals...would just be a waste of money to buy a properly working one)...Anyways...what kind of internals do you go about replacing for boost? Money is not an issue...if this takes me forever so be it. But I love the CRX and I want it to be incredibly fast.

    I guess I am wanting some opinions/guidance on what I should do with the B18C1 to make it fast and reliable with a turbo. But I do not want to cut any corners and get cheap.

    first thing go to hasport.com and look around for wiring harness linkage and mounts... this is the best place to go and get info about necessary items but its not the cheapest.... seems like you dont know much so buy everything for the swap so the shop doesnt sell you things you dont need THEN go to the reputable shop and have them install... after that; get tuned and then think about a turbo...and do alot of searching read the FAQ on this forum
    Good luck you will spend most of the 5k before your up and runing...shit happens

    a standard T3/T4 is not going to get you into the 11's

    to get enough power to get you into the 11's, you're gonna need at least a T60-1 or a T3/T67 like brian had, otherwise you'll have to run stupid high boost pressure and run the turbo out of the it's peak efficiency

    less pressure, more cfm

    you dont think that would make 11s? just saying I mean I have no clue I'm just curious but dont forget it will be going into a crx... I mean I like the idea of the bigger turbo anyway...I was just curious

    a t3/t04e with a 60 trim T04E compressor wheel might be sufficient, but why go with a smallish turbo and run it nearly out of its efficiecy when you could just run a larger snail, and keep it deep in it's efficieny range, also keeping boost pressures down

    lower boost levels mean less stress on the engine components, and less pressure means less heat in the intake air- shit brian made nearly 300hp at only 11 psi off his t3/t67

    and i don't know if you're going to run slicks or not, but to get into the 11's you'll have no choice- you'll never make the power you need to get there and still have any grip whatsoever, so add them to the list
