    hey guys i just got a turbo for my 94 civic dx, yes the small 1.5, and i was wondering if there are any precautions to take before putting on the turbo. The engine has 130k on it and i know thats getting up there, so im asking if there is anything you think to replace before running boost? And with that what psi should i range for?

    to be quite honest, i wouldn't waste your time.

    solreaver had a boosted d15, and it sucked. still slow.

    If i were you, id do a mini me conversion first.... then put your kit on. you will notice a much larger gain that way.

    ummm i gotta dissent on this one....

    i heard from multiple sources that frakensteins are not good motors to boost.


    i cant back this one up with any technical know-how, but this is what i been told from

    several people i talked to....

    not that it cant be done, but u better make sure ur mini-me is built right

    people say that because it puts compression up to 11:1 or something.

    so what 5 psi on an 11:1 motor is gonna pull like 10 psi on an 8.8:1 motor

    It won't be a screamer even turbo'd, but as long as compression is good and the tune is right (conservative timing and adequate fuel) it should work fine. The 16valve head flows good enough for decent power.
