i wana see some setups, lets see whatcha got, now's your chance to show off.
I plan on it once I get everything delivered here at the house and then installed. Brian I still plan on writing that article on turbo and intercooler installs, along with some visual aids!
what article? lol i don't remember
lol I planned on writing an artice for here about a turbo install and intercooler install. As you know they will both be Greddy kits(yeah I know you knew that) but the basics will be about the same for any turbo install.
Should I be the first? Suuuure, why not.
Mine's a little unusual, since I have a water/air intercooler, but here she is...
This is my 1991 Civic Si that I've rebuilt everything in the front of about 3-4 times now. I call it my little sleeper.

And all that test fitted in the car:
Nice as always bro. I have always liked your setup. The sleeper 4th gen... Yeah you got that right! What you pushing at the wheels now with the new set up bro?
Thanks for the compliments.
Haven't got a DP made for the new setup yet. Should have that done in the next 2 weeks or so.
I found out my old turbo was only a dinky ass 46 trim! I made 232 at the wheels on that tiny little bastard!
With the 3" DP, open wastegate dump, better flowing manifold, MUCH bigger turbo, we're hoping to see 350 at the wheels. In the meantime, I am getting my hands on a GSR shortblock with some knock in it for the low low. That'll be sent off to be sleeved and prepped for the 84mm piston treatment. 1.95L here I come. Muahahahahaha!
sweet dude- you'll have liek the same deal as me...
84mm gsr bottom, sir top
very nice i hope mine turns out like that. Are you using hondata or a s-afc?
I've got one of the first old school standalone Honda units.. the Z-Dyne Gold.
what is that a panther? jk looks a little like my beast cat, nice setup by the way
That's Sprite, my g/f's cat. He's AWESOME. I use him as a model whore for my new parts...
Here's some more pics of him....
With my Golden Eagle Oil Supply kit...
With my Box for the Tial Wastegate...
Anyone else got some pics?
i could post a bunch of boxes for ya if you want.... or wait a month
Got my intercooler yesterday. I will post pics after and during install of everything!
Sweet setup SiR Kid. Have you ever ran it at the track.
nice setup sirkid. looks sweet as hell but you got soo much shit crammed into that engine bay, it looks like it would be hell to work on anything. lol.
Actually with the new manifold and turbo, it SEEMS like there's alot more breathing room for everything in front of the engine. Probably just my imagination, though.
I ran it at the track on the MUCH smaller old turbo, smoking it's butt off from bad turbo seals, broken rear motor mount, cracked Down Pipe, rolling on 185/65/14 96 LX Civic Steelies with "Premium Performance" generic tires.... On these tires on the street, I could get the boost up in 1st by 6000 rpm, grab second really fast and lay down a PAIR of 200 ft long BLACK tire marks... Stock Honda differential's aren't all THAT bad.
It went 13.8@102 like that, and I spun through 1st and second, and let off the gas before redline in 3rd, and coasted the last 300 ft or so to the traps.
Yeah, I'm making excuses, but let's just say, it's gunna kick ass this time around.
your cat seems to like performance parts..... cool shit
