    Hey all!

    I have been on here reading and trying to absorb as much info from you all that I possibly can! I know that air flow to PSI ratio will differ between every turbo but am still a little lost on a couple of things such how to figure out how to tell by a turbos flow, how many PSI is safe to use on an engine. Just to give a little more detail, I am in the process of building a B18 and will eventually have a B16 head. I am trying to determine what turbo will be best for my goals yet still safe to use. Sorry if it sounds confusing :mellow:

    Also I am still trying to decide on internals for the B18 and how much power I am wanting to have.

    Go hit up the Garrett Turbos site and read their tech guide. It will teach you a good bit about sizing turbos.
