    I would go with some stronger internals if you are looking for something you can really have fun with if you are going to weekend race it. Might as well build it strong while ur in there if you have the budget for it.

    oh no.....i know adding the vtec will be better and i really appreciate the help man....but then i hafta wire my car for obd1......so it can add fuel for te vtec and i really dont feel like doing a wiring job....just some simple bolt on and tuning power...feel me......is there a way i can use a vtec switch but just use bigger injectors instead of wiring obd1 to use the vtec ecu.....and another reason i dont like switching to vtec is the dizzy....if i stay obd0 i cant use the obd1 dizzy and vise versa......sorta to annoying for me...but thanks for the help man i really appreciate the quick responses and help.....thanks :mrgreen:

    tial 50mm WG. on top of the fact that there isn't such a thing, if there was, it is 18 times too big for your application, and more so, won't fit your manifold. toose obHexed manis are 35/38 flanged.

    I would definately not go with an obx manifold...I have heard bad things about those manifolds. Plus if you have the stock exhaust manifold from your motor you can buy an adapter plate for the turbo you buy and use that manifold. But that's just my 2 cents.
