    If you're new to this, I'd advise against turbocharging anything for awhile. You need to do lots of research on how an engine functions so you can better understand why you would upgrade certain parts to achieve a certain goal.

    If you really want to do this, stick with your stock D16z6. Throw the turbo setup on there and have it tuned by a professional. Make sure that there's no oil leaks etc before you take it to the tuner. Running more power places more stress on the bearings, so any little oil leak can lead to disaster.

    What turbo and intercooler do you have?

    I have one recommendation for you. Ditch that JDM Sport wastegate and grab a TiAL sport or a decent gate. eBay wastegates have been known to spike and cause your engine to run lean, which is harmful. If you're shooting for 250-300hp a set of 450cc injectors will do just fine. PSI wise just run whatever makes the power goal you want..

    If you sleeve the engine, I'm assuming you're adding a decent piston and rod combination, which would basically mean you have a fully built block. With the proper combination of other parts, you could easily see 400+whp with decent tuning.
