    what kinda power can be expected with this setup on a D16a6 with catback. I would only want minimum boost since it is my daily driver

    at 6-7 psi this dynoed @172.7 whp from a stock 106.3. 6 psi is safe for a daily driver and non built motor

    you need to get an adapter plate, to mate the turbo to the manifold, this site will be extremely helpfull to youif you are serious about this, he explains how to build your own custom turbo set up and what is needed to tune it. www.homemadeturbo.com

    at the very least, you need an inline pump, a missing link, and an FMU for fuel management.

    well they got this crx to run these numbers w/o doing any of that . in part 2 they up the boost a bit and add bigger injectors and stuff like that.

    who is "they"???? you can boost as much as you wanna boost without getting these parts, but your motor is gonna hand grenade within a few days, take his advice and get the parts, those are bare minimum your car is gonna need to run that, if you dont wanna spend money on those things, just boost like 3-4 pounds, your still gonna need a missing link at least, or your ecu is gonna wig out.

    if you add more air without adding more fuel, you're a moron. end of story.

    at the very least, and fmu is required.
    in order to fill the rail from the higher pressure the fmu creates, you need the inline pump.
    and inorder to boost more than 2 psi without throwing a map code, you need some sort of check valve.

    im sorry, but that magazine is fucking retarded.
