    Yeah I was wondering, whats the max boost i could push with my d16a6 motor?
    specs:
    stock internal
    450cc injector
    greddy td04 turbocharger with internal wastegate
    jdm intercooler
    afc tuning, stock ecu
    so right now Im boosting 6 psi and I wanted to push more.
    whats the max i could push it to be safe:
    any info thanks

    1,000,000 PSI. Throw the stock injectors back on, turn down the fuel pressure, and watch it fly...

    I'd say about 15psi before you blow something. That's pretty normal for D-series.

    RLY? What's a JDM intercooler look like? Is it different than a USDM intercooler? Oh, nevermind, I know. The JDM intercooler exits on the right side, right?

    Lose the greddy e-manage. It's a good way to fuck up an engine.

    How about you just leave it at 6?

    leave it where its at, get rid of the hack and get your ecu chiped and tuned properly, that piggy-back will end up blowing your motor. psi means nothing, you need to figure out how much cfm your turbo is putting out, a t-25 at 15psi will put out as much cfm as a t3/t4 60trim at 7psi, get it tuned properly if you want it to last

    To the OP, focus on your horsepower not your boost pressure.

    check out ZealAutowerks - Honda Compression Calculatorfind out what your effective CR is and make sure its a green signal. Too much boost will cause detonation, and thats not good for d stock internals. Unless you wanna spend loads of money rebuilding a car thats not meant for giving tonnes of horse power. The rod-stroke ratio isnt very boost friendly. If you just wanna boost with stock internals, expecting 160whp or something just go for 6 psi boost and tune it.
    just my 2 cents

    unchipped ecu? interesting...probably should get it chip and get it tune....max psi is depending on the tune and motor condition...

    I doubt the OP even cares. He hasn't been on for almost a month now.
