    ok im seriously considering boosting my b16a. if i do i will use a ebay dsm flange manifold and a dsm 14b turbo and dsm 440 injectors. i will need to get some intercooler piping and a srt-4 intercooler. and i will get it all tuned on my obdo pr3 ecu. and just get a dp made and get a cheap bov from somebody locally. here is my question and that is how much boost can a b16 accept without goin boom i was thinking 10psi dd and 15 when racing what are your thoughts. oh this will all be going in my 89 sedan

    14b is really small for a b16. its better suited on a d16. i would go with something at least a little larger. it will be out of its efficiency range at high rpm, throwing heat, not boost.

    what psi, doesn't matter. its the tune that matters. psi doesn't break stuff, power does... whether it took 1 psi or 123213 psi to get there. But if you want to go over 10.2 psi, you need a gm3-bar map sensor and appropriate electronics to support it.
    look into turboedit for tuning.

    crome doesn't work on obd0 ecu's, only obd1. it's not an option unless you convert to obd1

    the Pr3 came in both OBD1 and OBD0 i believe, i have an OBD0 Pr3 ECU im tryin to get ride of and im pretty sure i read up somewhere that it came in both.


    Maybe you have the OBD1 o.0

    Does it have a little red light in the center (near center) of the ECU? if so.. its OBD0... if not.. its OBD1.
