    hey guys im new to this site. but i wanted to know some information. i want to get my integra to have over 350 hp i wanna if im going the right route, or if there are other things i should do while the engine is still apart.

    ok i have a blown ls turbo motor, and im getting it rebuilt for the turbo here is what i have for it

    a greddy turbo 18g
    a 600 hp intercooler
    440 fuel injectors
    walboro fuel pump
    boring 20 over on the ls bottom
    9.1 compression pistons
    egael rods
    gsr head
    ls manual transmission
    with a stage 3 clutch
    2.5 inch downpipe and 2.5 inch exhaust

    is there anything else i should do for the head or other little things to get it to that 400 hp mark?

    have you ever driven a 350hp integra?

    is this going to be your daily driver?

    you wont like driving that. you will have a jumpy clutch and poor gas. it's just a flat out lot of power. if you want a fun dd, look for about 200-250. you can do that pretty easy and it will be a lot cheaper. and if you decide to race, you will still beat about 95% of street legal cars.

    ive never seen an intercooler cause spool problems all that noticible, however that size unit wont be necessary for your hp/boost needs. its overkill. as for the trans, i personally like the longer gears with boost setups. blancos right about the ls trans+boost myth going around the forums. shorter ratio equals faster. always. but i think the ls trans is perfect for boosted dd's, shitting around town not having to shift quite so much, being able to draw out 2nd and 3rd a lot more. but at 250w or more, its kinda all personal preference. good luck

    Are you going to be able to fit a filter on that turbo? Doesn't look like there's that much room.

    That intercooler is way to big for what you plan on making, and its also not a good idea because you had top cut out your bumper reinforcement for it to fit, not so good for a DD.

    thats my bad grammar/wording. i was saying ive never personally seen i/c size affect boost levels to that degree, at least not noticible enough to register on the analog gauges. believe me, i understand the concept, its just one of those things im yet to see happen in front of my eyes
