    Well, injectors are on and fuel management is working fine. However, I've ALREADY maxed this turbo, and only at 28 lbs/min of airflow too instead of the ~35 I was hoping for. For the record this is on a 95 GSX with a big T28. Sure I should be satisfied though, with that kind of airflow I'm making a good 250-280 awhp based on other logs I've seen of AWD DSMs...

    But when are we ever satisfied? It's time for a bigger turbo 300 awhp or bust :ph34r:

    lbs/min is NOT psi.

    cfm is volume.
    psi is pressure.


    apples and oranges

    and we aren't making juice

    good stuff

    18g doesn't need another manifold, but more power can be made from the evo 3 16g's that are so popular now. I have about 1200 to blow maybe, looking towards a 50 trim variant and some cams, that should be good for 50% more airflow easily eh. 370+ awhp or bust now :ph34r:

    The key is that they're both mitsu flanged. 18g's will most likely use the TD05H turbine housing, which definitely bolts on to a 2g manifold. You may have heard that 16g/18g/20g/25g's don't bolt on to the 2g's in general, but that's due to the turbos firing upward and the difference in oil feed configurations.

    cuz mitsu turbos have the same bolt holes that the T-2 series do.

    and for some reasons I dont see you maxing out the t25 at 35psi and only making 300whp...

    Once again, it's not a t25, I'm not running 35 psi of boost, and I'm not making 300 awhp.

    Oh god no.

    Also, regardless of the whole "I have torque" argument, and the fact that this is a Honda forum, I have this to say:

    Honda Rocks out on the collective faces of Subaru, Nissan, Toyota and just about anything else.

    Don't believe me? Motor Trend does :)

    Holset is beyond what I want right now, and will cost more to me in the end through needing the turbine housing, turbo itself, external, redo my exhaust etc. I had been looking at T04E 50 trim hybrid turbos but eventually decided on an Evo III 16g.

    OEM quality and has been recorded to flow upwards of 44 lbs/min propelling full weight 2g AWD's into the 11.5-11.8 range :mrgreen:

    More updates as I get shit in.
    Sucks realizing you just dropped a grand into your car (yes yes you've all spent more, but I'm in college and now broke, again).
