    I havnt been on in a long time because i have moved and have been busy with my project and work.

    Heres the deal

    I bought a B16A and i had a B18A lying around. Ive got pretty much everything apart right now and the plan is to use the B18 bottom end, including pistons. The B16 head, intake manifold, oil pump and water pump. The reason i want to keep the B18 pistons is because the plan is to go turbo. The goal is 300 whp, but this will be a progressive thing because cash is kinda tight. The head is being lightly ported by myself and i plan on using a mustang throttle body in the near future. For fuel management, im going to use an Vafc hack until i can afford Hondata.

    My questions are.

    What will my compression ratio be?
    Will i need a super thick head gasket to run on pump gas?
    What size turbo should i use and how much boost should it produce?
    How far can i take the stock injectors before i need to get bigger ones?
    Will my stock internals even hold up to this kind of power?

    Thanks for your help
    Sean

    ok, in your case I would upgrade the pistons and the rods, rod bolts and head bolts......then run the turbo setup.
