    Hi I'm David. I have a 94 Del Sol with a 94 b18b1 swap, neuspeed coilovers, apex-i cat back, dc stainless header, and MR 7 wheels.

    Looking foward to boost it real soon, so any tips or thoughts shoot them my way. Thanks

    Yea i wana just run a couple pounds of boost. Nothing to major, just that fact to boost it. I know alot of ppl are against "ebay" kits, but i just wana spend about the 1200-1500 dollar range. I don't want to make it a "race car" since it will be my DD.

    Does anyone run an "ebay" kit or anything that is off ebay?

    Does anyone have any input on this idea? Is there any other kit i can pick up for or around the 1200 dollar range?

    I understand that you don't want to spend a lot of money on this since you don't plan on boosting much, but honestly I'd still spend some extra bucks to get a decent quality setup. E-Bay turbo kits are synonomous with crap. Why waste money on junk that could possibly harm your motor and cost you more down the road when you could have just spent a little more up front and got quality stuff to begin with?

    And FYI, it's safe to boost more than a couple pounds on that engine. In fact, you can safely make 200+ wheel horse on a B18B, you just need to make sure you have quality components and that you're tuned well.

    What I'd actually recommend is that you do a lot of reading on turbo-charging (you can start with the articles in our FAQ section) and then work on piecing together your own turbo kit that exactly suits your wants and needs. That way you can shop around and get the same quality of components that you'd find in the expensive name-brand turbo kits but hopefully it will be a little more cost effective and exactly suited to your needs...

    lol!



    yeah it's not that ebay kits are good for low boost or anything, it's that ebay kits fail way way more commonly than good components (greddy/trust, tial, HKS, precision turbo, full-race, to name a few).

    there's LOTS and LOTS of information on this forum about it. quite honestly, you can read about forced induction for days with all the information just on hondaswap. use the search button of course. or just check out the recent posts in the Forced Induction section.

    since your new, you dont know i guess, but now when get_nick posts 'read my sig', it's inevitable that everything you want to know has been covered. try to research, research some more, then when u get stuck, post questions.

    best of luck!

    :lmao: Nice!

    I need to do something similar, or at least ask people not to PM me anymore. I get tech-related PMs from people that have never even posted before, they just go straight to PM. It's ridiculous...
