    440's sound fine if you stick to that plan. I suggest you start reading A LOT!! This isnt a topic someone can just post a quick 1 2 3 answer to. There's a LOT to a turbo kit, well, a good one anyway :p

    ok first boost level has nothing to do with the safety of the engine. second if you are going to run boost you better get something better than an fmu and a safc. you will want a standalone ie: hondata, aem, crome, uberdata etc. tuning is what you need to keep a boosted motor together.

    ok now to address the boost level here we go stock h22 two different turbos. (only an example)

    t25 (small turbo) on 9psi might make 260- 280 hp
    sc 60-1 (much larger turbo) on 9 psi might make upwards of 325-350.

    because the sc 60-1 flows more it is able to make more power so remember it is not boost level that breaks things it is hp!!!!

    h22's can hold 300hp safely. a t3/t4 57 trim on 9 psi will make roughly 280 hp. on 7 psi it might only make 250-260.

    there are people making 350-530hp on stock blocks with no problem. however i dont suggest much over 350

    generally speaking yes. but like i said it is all about hp not boost so a good tuner and a dyno are your best friends in this situation.

    remember a good intercooler is also crutial

    tuning is key when dealing with boosted h22's.

    a 60 trim compressor is good, as long as the turbine is not super small. get AT LEAST a .63ar turbine.

    I've witnessed turbo h22's blow with only 250whp. why? because the owner tuned with an afc. I've also witnessed turbo h22's run 400whp without a glitch. that one was tuned on crome pro.

    The biggest problem with a safc or vafc and boost is that it CAN NOT control timing. Only a/f.

    Get on pgmfi.org and start reading how to tune with crome/uber/neptune and how to burn chips.
