    It'll be complicated regarless of what he does.

    Converting to even DPFi is a difficult task...

    I'd say move on, find a cheap EF and work with that.

    It's going to cost too much and not be worth the money you'll spend in the end.

    there you go swap a b20 in

    i say do a g1teg swap and turbo that or if your not into doing all that buy a newer civic and slap a turbo on it

    the b20 isnt ready to go in yet need something else to do with this engine in the meantime

    its a 1500cc EFI in my 1987 3rd gen u used to be able to buy turbo kits for them i was just wondering what sort of boost the engine will take as i can get all the shit for it on the cheap. but i dnt wanna upgrade ecu i can do it with larger injectors and a ajustable fuel pressure reg can i not?

    Check homemadeturbo.com for info on a turboed D15B2. Some guys have done it. The D-series can't take much boost without tuning.

    d15b2 is total different motor than EW/d15a3. An IHIRHB5 or a DSM turbo would be good for an ew, im putting a ihi on mine. thinking of try the blow threw carb setup..

    you can use bigger injectors an a fmu or w/e it is

    www.redpepperracing.com is the site you want for 3rdgen civic info



    hmt is good for the basic turbo info you will need

    no, it won't. and it will be a bitch and a half to even get in the car.

    seriously, you're wasting your time.
