    i just purchased a 99cx W/96,325 miles. for 4.5k red, completely stock........what do you guys think...


    i am starting to plan out the future of this car.
    ..i am going to turbo charge the SOHC until it pops....any suggestions on the most logical home made turbo setup..i only want to spend no more than $800 bucks i'll probably wont use an IC.....lots a variations to consider.... so a little help is always welcome....

    after i complete the turbo, i am going to start looking into a k24/k20 frankenstine swap.....
    i finally have the car i always wanted.....(honda that is)
    any comments.... :beer:

    For ultra cheap, you'd probably go with an SSAutoShit manifold and a bunch of stuff off a Ford T-Bird TurboPoop.

    Exactly my take on it, B. If he's gonna spool on a cheap ass motor, he may as well use cheap ass parts. :shrug:

    i would advise against ss auto shit, if you want cheap use the hf mani with an adaptor plate

    sounds like you'll be running an FMU with high pressure fuel pump for managment, or lack thereof i should say...
    you can always try uberdata or any of the other free-ish managment programs, but i've not worked with them yet...

    i would advise that you use an intercooler as this can be a big help with preventing detonation, and you can use any intercooler off any car, it doesn;t have to be an expensive one...

    i would also suggest that you try and get a whole car, thats the only way i see you meeting your budget... get a turbo saab or something for 200 bucks and strip the turbo stuff, turbo, down pipe, possibly stock BOV, internal wastegated turbo, intercooler, all intercooler lines, and oil lines for the turbo, you might be able to do something with them...
    and you may also be able to use the stock turbo mani to fabricate your adapter plate?

    fmu AND fpr?

    i believe a fmu is an fpr for boost...

    fpr regulates depending on vacuum, fmu regulates depending on boost...

    and i don;t understand why you wouldn;t use an intercooler, they're cheap and a small one can be fit anywhere that you route the pipes... doesn;t need to be front mount or anything...

    all depends on which intercooler you get...

    so you'll be swapping a K series into this car?

    hmmm, just get a ZC or something, then wait a few weeks and turbo that.

    I would defenitly get an intercooler, even a small FMIC isn't too expensive, 120 bucks or so or a stock turbo cars is like 10-1000 but theres something out there for you. I also agree, ssautochrome is garbage, I got a nice log manifold for like 130 bucks for my LS...there's no more so don't ask. I can sell you a CX or VX top mani piece if you want cause I defenitly won't be using them.

    Home depot is your best friend on budget turbo setups, oil lines, fittings, charge pipes and some other things you can make out of there crap is there.

    I really suggest to get a good turbo (ie.. t3 or something of the sort) because you can always take it off and put it on the K or B or whatever you do. 13gs, 14b's uhn uhn.

    homemadeturbo.com can help you out a bit too.
