    im finally ready to build my motor and i need a little help on my setup.......

    my plans as of right now are:

    -top end-
    crower valves, springs, and retainers
    crower turbo race cams
    crower cam gears
    portflow full race pnp

    -bottom end-
    crower 2.0 stroker kit w/ 8.5 CR
    import builders sleeving

    -fuel system-
    aem rail,reg, and filter
    255lph fuel pump
    550cc rc injectors
    hondata

    i wanna make somewhere b/w 500 and 550 whp, i plan to piece together a turbo kit and i need help with turbo selection. i am thinking about going with a turbonetics T4 w/ a tubular stainless manifold, 3" stainless downpipe, spearco f/m intercooler, 3" intercooler piping, turboxs BOV and boost controler.

    does this setup look ok for the numbers i am hoping, or am i on the wrong track? i am kinda new to boost so any help would be greatly appreciated. also, i am worried about turbo lag, any suggestions?


    thanks

    i have 10k to spend on the motor and the transmission

    i was planning on running an ls transmission, dues to the longer gears, along with a lsd

    does this setup look like it will yield around 550 to the wheels with minimal turbo lag and good throttle response?

    also, what is a reputable company that does custom stainless turbo mainfolds and downpipes?

    thanks

    the jdm itr has short gears, i thought that with boost you wanted long gears so that you could stay at optimum boost for longer?

    i already have a gsr tranny, would i be better off to just rebuild it and use the lsd than to go with the ls tranny?

    GSR>LS Stick with the GSR and sure, add LSD to it too. GSR stock is stronger too. I believe it has a stronger diff.
    Shorter gears = faster accelaration.

    since no ones answering your Q...i think u should go with the Sc-60 or sc-61....those turbo's support up to 500 and 600 horsepower,and would be more sutable..im sure a T4 could make it that high too,but its all on how close u want to cut it...


    as long as u do full upgrades....3'' exhaust...660cc or 720cc injectors..big fuel pump,etc...and tune it right..and build the motor..u will make it to 500 horsepower...


    make sure u get :

    Aftermarket radiator
    Big cooling fan
    Bigger fmic
    3" exhaust piping
    Big Wastegate (38mm)
    Big injectors
    Big fuel pump
    Fuel rail (optional)
    Hondata
    wideband O2 sensor
    Dyno time


    if u build that head and block the way u say you are..and boost it..that will put u at about 500...if done right.
