    i have a stock jdm gsr in my hatch i have recently bought a t3t4 turbo setup, i would like to run 10lbs. it is my dd so i would like it faster but im not building a race car just got the turbo for cheap haha. i would jus like some advice or opions on what is safe to do in order for it to run good and eliminate any problems it could cause.. recommended injectors, maybe block gaurd? head studs or gasket. really anything to be safe i want to do this right the first time which sucks cuz i have to stare at it in my room every night lol

    ignore psi... you're good till about 275-300 WHP on a professional tune with proper fuel management.

    What is prefered for fuel management? I was thinking of running some 450 dsm injectors my friend is giving me and buying a walbro 255fuel pump, is that good or will I need to get like a aem or hondata unit?

    you would need a good tune for your setup.. Spoon chip wont be good for turbo apps

    the spoon chip isn't good for N/A, either.

    I HIGHLY suggest you take your car to a dyno and have it pro tuned. the 500 buks you spend will be much cheaper than blowing up.

    Yup! I say 10psi with stock internals will be fine as long you get a good tune and at least rc 440 or 550 injectors!

    K thank you everyone for your help and for the injectors are some stock ones fine out of a dsm? 94 awd talon I’ve heard arguments on both sides for these but they are so easy to find and it’s the size everyone suggests to use

    they are a pain to set up, but are cheap. you need to bore your rail out a little and wire in a resistor pak.

    or, you can spend more money and get some RC440's

    1000cc injectors for your power goal is too big. I believe you would be better off with some 550's or so.

    550s are plenty big.
    1000's are a PAIN to idle, and you'll spend more time and money trying to tune them for your modest goal.

    in all honesty, i'd find someone else to do your hondata... cuz this guy doesn't seem to have a clue

    this guy really does know what he is doing(9 second civic) he just was sayin put big ones in so i wontever have to get ones later and he can change the impedancelevel or something with the hondatafor the injectors to run however we need them. is thata good price for the hondata and tune and everything though?
