    Dont boost at all-and get a FMU-(fuel management Unit) itll save you a lil bit on gas.

    sure you can.. you shouldnt even have to turn the boost down if it has a good tune... dont use an fmu.. chip an ecu and get that motha tuned... kinda depends on if you run a stock bottom end or built and what psi your running.. but with a really good tune anything is possible

    TRUE
    it matters all about what this guy can do money wise. fmus are cheap like 60-100
    chipping and tuning can cost.

    If your looking for 250-300whp, it can easily be done, daily driven. I DD my 551whp hatch on 22psi. Fuel pump, fp regulator, 550cc injectors, colder plugs, back the timing off slightly and run low boost on pump gas. Have it tuned on crome or the such. You should be fine with this setup on a decently sized turbo. Just stay out of boost if you want to keep some sort of gas mileage.

    What are you talking about? You cannot even spell it correctly. It is "Crome", not "Chrome". Secondly, the software isnt the problem. Your tuner is. I've seen many cars tuned on Crome and have not had issues. Please do not give out false information.

    You need to just stop posting. Every comment of yours that I've seen lately is barely legible and just plain bad advice. You clearly have no clue what you're talking about most of the time...

    I was asking if it would be hard to make 250hp NA with a gsr head. And would I have to take my AC out for a t3 or t4 turbo? (i got a 94 honda civic ex if it matters)

    You can keep your power steering and a/c with a turbo. Look around at the different manifold options, and youll be able to find sumthin that will work for you.

    so why could i not just build a gsr head to be turbo? would i just get more HP with the same PSI with a b16 head?...i was wondering if it was because a gsr head would not be worth the money...i get them both the same at my local junk yard.

    (you guys are really helping me out a lot, thank you very much)

    GSR butterfly intake manifold not best for turbo might as well build the head-valves-springs-retainers-cams-shafts-
    get a skunk2,blox,etc. mani whatever u can afford and trottle body.might as well if ur building it. GSR stock is closest thing to type R-u can get.
