    did budget boost on 95 civic ex and is over heating when i hit boost a few times

    has cx manifold 1g eclipse turbo and intercooler and bov

    ran oil lines did not run coolant lines thru turbo

    i think it needs a bigger radiator like a 3 core insted of the factory 2 core

    any thoughts and if you have the parts i need let me know thanks

    :wave:

    there is no reason why a single core won't support your heat generation. dual, just that much more.

    if you're having over heating problems, i'd look into your tune. you're probably running way too hot EGT's, too much timing, and an overall bad tune.

    throw out the blue box and get some real manageemnt on there.

    EGT = exhaust gas temperature

    You need to get yourself a good wideband sensor and then tune your car from there- that way you can tell exactly what your air/fuel ratios are.

    I have a boosted d16y8 and have had problems with my car overheating and overflowing coolant pretty much since I got the turbo. the problem has gradually gotten worse. I have tried trouble shooting from the cheapest to the most expensive fixes ( thermostat, radiator hoses, radiator caps, had my radiator checked) and have come to the conclusion that I need to lower my timing once I get uberdata installed and need to replace my head gasket. I dont know if this will help but there are a few articles here, at honda-tech, and d-deries.org that talk about this problem specifically with the d-series motor.

    pull a comp test to check your cylinders, might be just a bad head gasket, but for the short term, turn your distributor to retard the timing...

    what do you guys think of your budget boosted d's???
