    I'm thinking of turbo'n my Mini-Me to 200, maybe 225 whp. I have 4 grand stashed away but I'd like to spend half that.

    So far I have:

    -Rebuilt D16A6 block with 35,000 miles on it
    -Rebuilt D16Z6 head with 2500 miles on it
    -D16Y8 intake manifold
    -OBD1 conversion with chipped P28 ECU

    This is my list...imput is needed here:

    -Walbro 255 fuel pump
    -Vitara pistons
    -Stronger rods (may do Eagle/Vitara set up)
    -Factory bearings
    -Turbo
    -Manifold
    -Injectors
    -MAP (needed?)
    -Wideband O2 (needed?)
    -Spark plugs (needed?)
    -B.O.V.
    -Clutch (stage 2)
    -Stock flywheel

    My thoughts are I will yank my motor out, take off the oil pan, leave the crank in and just change out the rods and pistons. When I did my Mini-Me head swap, 2500 miles ago, the block was really clean (35,000 miles old) with a fresh honed surface. Right now its a 10:1 CR, does anyone know what Vitara pistons will do to that?

    Boost on the stock pistons. Taking them out with the crank in is possible, but barely.

    200whp is a LOT in a CRX. Lots of fun. Keep the turbo small. Need a 14b and a manifold? :)

    youre really concerned about beating a 5.0 mustang?

    unless its wildly modified, id say you probably dont have anything to worry about
