    So, i am finally getting my honda civic b20 turbo'ed. I have everything ready for it except for a Tune.
    Mod:
    Stg 3 clutch
    Lighten flywheel
    Cams (402)
    Revhard exhaust manifold
    Revhard inter cooler
    Ebay turbo (JDM SPORT)
    and unknown piping Bov and ext w/g (6lb for now)
    550 RC injectors
    Walbro fuel pump 250
    stock p72 ECU
    Manuel boost controller
    i was wonder if i can drive my car for awhile like this without a tune just completely stock. Any advance would help dont want to blow it.

    Best advice is get it tuned. DO NOT DRIVE IT ON A STOCK COMPUTER WITHOUT A TUNE. Doing so will greatly increase the chance that your motor will blow. Also Ebay turbo kits have been know to be pretty shitty.

    Exactly, which is just about the most important part of the turbo setup, aside from the wastegate.

    You should NOT be driving this car untuned. That is HORRIBLE for an engine.

    You're going to put larger injectors, a different cam, and a stock ECU?

    How many engines do you plan on buying?

    Trust them, dont drive it. My buddy Has a B20 turbo'd and lets say he didnt tune it. I will make this story short, lets say he is not driving it any more. LOL.

    It will for 3-4 months at most, till that eGay turbo decides to start smoking like crazy, or maybe the bearings will wear down prematurely and you won't make shit for power. Or better yet, maybe the glued together housing will come apart on ya.

    Good luck with that no tune bullshit, too.
