    Im about to throw a turbo on my stock h22a I was wondering if i could use my stock injectors considering im not going to run no more than 10 pounds of boost? Someone told me I could and another told me I couldnt. I plan on using about 5-7 street and 8-10 racing. I know using stock map i can only use about 10 max actually 10.66 max to be exact just not sure about the injectors...

    First off we don't know your setup so telling us how many pounds you plan on forcing into your engine means very little. Regardless, I would never recommend anyone to use stock injectors on a turbo motor. Don't skimp out, you'll be sorry later.

    What size turbo? I ran my Accord stockers with a smaller turbo and 6psi. They were running in the high 90's for IDC's. I bought new ones right away, it was just for testing the ecu more or less.

    im running a t3/t4 turbo, but i was thinking of running a smaller turbo for a quicker spool since my motor is stock and im running low boost

    The t3/t4 wont work well with stock injectors. I would def have to recommend going bigger with any amount boost on that turbo. if you went smaller and low boost you might be ok.

    When I finally get to saving some money for my R series Turbo, even though I'm going to be using a rather small turbo on low boost, I'm still gonna upgrade the injectors. Better safe than sorry.
