    Hey everyone.. hope all your builds and cars are turning out well..
    I have made up my mind and have decided to go single cam on boost.

    I have a D16z6 in my 94 civic si coupe and im curious to know roughly how many pounds i can run safely in the STOCK motor.. i was thinking 6-8 cause im not planing to go crazy fast and it will be my daily driver.. maybe just here and there i will punch it when i get it tuned..

    Please let me know your suggestions of what you think..
    Your help is greatly appreciated.. Thanks

    6-8 would be perfect.. depending on the size of the turbo.. some will make more power than others

    8lbs on stock everything will work (GReddy kit is roughly that)

    I say you can hit 12lbs (depending on size of turbo)

    But with 12lbs, you need bigger fuel pump injectors and chipped ecu...with tune

    Its safe...if you're not hammering it all the time

    Get a electronic boost control and you can have two settings. One for regular days and another for those times when you wanna play
