    should I go with Nos, Turbo, or supercharger....Or Should I just Upgrade My Internals....... I have about $3300 to spend.....any suggestions?

    Thanks

    :D Well THe Car Is Used as for a Daily driver....And No !...IM not worried about MPG... Im just trying to keep it as a Family car, and still have a good engine build up to kill most civics and acura at the Track.....(I guess)

    In the summer I Go to the Track about 2 times a week, and Im trying to beef up the engine but still keep the 93 sedan look on it..NO rims , No ground effects No nothing,,,,JUST power.....Sleeper Look..You KNow.....

    in my n00b opinion I'd say upgrade your internals and then turbo it.

    fuck nitrous, if you're looking ro run 15-16 psi daily, get forged rods and lower comp. forged pistons. you could run 12 psi daily easily with some good tuning on stock internals, but due to the higher comp. of the b18c, i wouldn't run more than that unless you lower the comp.

    Piece together a nice custom turbo kit yourself, then bolt it on and tune tune tune. You could easily double your power on stock internals with a well tuned turbo kit.

    Remember- tuning is the most important step! Don't cut corners on tuning.

    read the pinned article in this forum "very nice complete..." or whatever its called. theres a LOT to setting up a reliable turbo setup. and thats what you want- a daily driver, reliable car.

    if you just buy random parts and throw it together, its going to run like a thrown together car.

    saying you want to run 16 psi proves that you know little about turbos and turbo charging systems. you have much to leanr- and thats fine- but do a TON of reading before you start dumping money on shit that you either don't need or won't work for you.

    I made more power off 11 psi (just under 300 whp) than most people do off of 15 on a drag kit.
    how? every turbo is different.
    5psi on a large turbo will create about the same cfm as a smaller turbo on say 10 psi (example only). CFM = cubic feet per min of air. Air + fuel + feeding it into your motor makes the power.
    PSI, is the amount of PRESSURE measured at the map sensor. CFM makes power. PSI makes you a desktop racer.

    sorry pissed****sol...I've been around turbos for a long time...But not Hondas..This Is my 2nd year building Hondas....I'm also building a mitsubishi eclipse Monster..... Im turning the whole engine sideways and making it rear wheel drive....as a matter a fact thats the turbo setup im going with on my honda is a (stock eclipse turbo) and I'll be using a Garrett GT Ball Bearing Turbo from Modacar for our eclipse. and custom make my own pipes.....I will be also making my own manifold....So far I've had no problems with my Turbo manifolds.....Last Year I was pushing 16 lbs of boost on my stock internals on our mitsubishi with no problems,,.... Hopefully everything comes out good......as for the tranny..! well Thats a secret....But yeah......Its getting there.....
    Here are somepics.......+ a sneek peek @ my new turbo setup for my honda......and yes...I do want to push 16lbs on my honda....Trust me ....I've done it before....It will be done again.... and on the eclipse i will be pushing at least 25lbs of boost with 100shot of nos.......and Yes Its been done before.... I'm good at it......
