    i dont even want to know how much i have into it. Well on the b16 that was in there was tuned at 326hp at 11psi. So right now i am around there right now. I need to get a different pipe made from the turbo to the intercooler so i can boost a little more. Right now that pipe keeps blowing off.

    haha...I don't blame you. How long have you been working on your set up? I'm FINALLY living my dream of swapping out my engine after ten long years of not being able to. Patience definitely pays off.

    well the first setup i had on the tand for about a year or so. I was putting it together piece by piece. Making sure i did everything right. The i got a stupid defective valve. Then i had this motor sitting on the side so i swapped in it.

    Did you ever replace the valve on your old engine? I'm hoping to be in a situation like that soon, where I'll have a spare engine to swap into mine. I may get my hands on a B18B and swap out my D16Z6 for a while until I can FINALLY get what I really want, a B18C...or a C5 maybe? :D Everything comes with patience. I still can't get over how sweet your set up looks.

    yea i am still waiting to hear back to see if they are going to pay for the damage that was caused by the valve. I want to get the ic piping powder coated so it doesnt look like rusted steel.

    Nice build, how did you route your oil line to the Vtec. The oil line feeding your turbo is the line I have feeding my head. were is the other line coming from?

    if you look in the first picture, the black hose coming from the oil filter area, that is the line that is feeding my head. I used an oil filter adapter plate that i was able to run an extra line.

    Thanks for the info

    Thanks for the info. I have a similar set up but nothing as clean as yours. Hopefully one day mine could look like that. I'm still in the process of putting on the turbo.
