    A couple of shots of my civic. I know the pics
    are gay, but fuck it.[​IMG]

    anyways...
    I just got done installing a homemade turbo in my fodo'.
    Its a b18b engine (stock) with a 57 trim
    t3t4 turbonetics turbo.
    Most of the turbo parts were bought at local shop and forums.
    It took me 4 days to get this thing rolling.
    I spent about $1100-1200 for this project including
    a couple used gauges (boost and oil press). Thanks Ripperbone.:)
    Not too shaby compared to almost 3 grand i spent 2 years
    ago for the drag3 kit. This is pretty much the same shit
    for half the price.


    I'll be tuning it with crome.



    Here she is. My sleeper 4 door. WHat do you think? Do i look gay
    in the last pic? lol


    edit: The intercooler is now painted black. ALso bought a Tial BOV and mounted it 6" from the turbo.

    can't really see your setup in those pics but the car looks nice

    why did you put the BOV so close to the turbo?

    Not really looking for much.
    But im sure i can sweeze about 200whp outta this by tuning it right. @ 10psi with the stock internals. Maybe a little more.:p

    I also have a gsr swap that im building for next year. im looking for at least 400whp outta that one.

    I think you can hit a least 250whp on a t3/t4 57 trim @ 10 psi

    I would do something about the oil line over the valve cover. SS braided line works as a great low speed file... your valve cover will look like garbage if you leave that line rubbing on it...

    just a heads up. the build looks great! what a sleeper!

    Oh, and why is the a/c compressor still bolted on?

    i wanted to keep the ac, but after buying this other gsr motor, i decided to get rid of it...
    Im taking it off today.:D

    as for the ss braided line. well, it does look a little fucked up. Imma try to hide it.

    I'll work on that today.
    More pics coming tonight. ;)

    I meant it will mess up you valve cover, but yeah, it also is kindof an eyesore.

    ;)

    My friend got 264 WHP with a very very similar setup like yours on 93 octane. The engine had ultra low miles though.

    Very very nice! If you want suspension and brakes for that thing, let me know. I love the fodo.
