    I plan to deck out a B18b engine w/ Skunk2 cams and camshaft, JE Pistons, Eagle Rods, maybe spoon crank, Golden Eagle Blockguard, and Spoon Valves/springs/valve seats for the bottom end. I need help choosing a turbocharger that will be good for close to 300 to maybe 340hp @ 10~12psi. Any suggestions, i'm planning to have a mild Nitrous setup to spool up the turbo @ low rpms.

    don't run skunk2 cams. get crower turbo cut cams. you want high lift, mild duration for turbo. For NA, you want high duration and midl lift, and thats what skunk2 offers.
    spoon crank? worthless
    spoon anything- overpriced shit. you would be better off with skunk2 or crower or portflow valve train.

    after all is said and done... Why a b18b, if you are looking to dump 4+ grand into the head alone.... why not a sleeved gsr?

    I heard and read in threads that LS was the way to go for turbo. I know peeps Turbo GSRs a lot, and i see a lot of ready made turbo kits for the GSR motor. But i have yet to see a very reliable ls kit (DRAG/RevHard). I'm basically up for a challenge, a turbo kit takes out all the guess work of making a car a custom job. I like the feeling of pioneering things which haven't been mastered, so i'm set out to turbo a LS and find the best way to do it. Also turbocharger? i still need info for that.

    ok, if youre set on a b18b... its not really going to be a first. there's thoughsands of people running turbo LS's.

    if you want to make 300 WHP, you need head work! port the hell out of that LS head. thats its major fault- lack of flow. a skunk2 intake manifold will help too. i recommend portflow :) http://www.portflow.com

    In my opinion, the kits suck. If you are up for a little challenge, cool- get a max rev do it your self kit with hondata. $2850 for the turbo and the hondata system.

    its a do-it-yourself type kit.

    you will need to add some 550 cc injectors (http://www.rceng.com), and mess around with the piping a little. other than that, its all you need to get going. take it to get it the hondata tuned, and youre good to crank up the boost

    We just recieved a fax from one of our distributors that dynoed our B18 kit on a GSR with 140,000 miles. Fueling was done by only a FMU. 299 hp at the wheels and 211 ft/lbs at 10 psi. Not too bad I would say.
