    think about all the b16s that are boosted on stock comp theyre like 10.5:1 or something like that. and they love it. like some one said its on the tuner and how much your shoving in there. 13# on 8.5:1 is alot different than 10:1

    If you don't know what he's talking about then you're not ready to boost. Either do some research, or take your car to a performance shop and say "I want turbo and I want this much horsepower" and let them figure it out...

    Dude wiked, you just made my searching day! I've been looking for information like that for a few days. I'm trying to educate myself more on turbo's and yes, you just helped out immensely. Enjoy the rep! :thumbsup:

    EDIT: Dude, I would kiss you now if I were fruity. HAHA! That little, simple explanation that he gave just explained a LOT to me! Someone give this man a cigar and more rep for me! :D

    what are honestly going to do with the car? ( road race , auto cross , street , drag , speed trials . we all love honda but they are not all around supercars , a built 11 second drac civic , kinda sucks ass to drive in heavy traffic , and just blows for auto cross . ect ect ect .), That should be your starting point for how you build the car . also if you can't afford to break it don't do it .
