    I'm looking to put a turbo on my 97 lube. But i don't really know what kind and wich size to get. I would like to get a T66 but maybe it's too much, i don't know i would like your advice?
    I'm looking to get around 15psi on daily driven.
    What size turbine should i get? Should i change my head gasket and get a high compression one?
    what else should be changes when putting a turbo, cam gears? pulleys? injectors? fuel rail?
    I'm changing the fuel pump with a high flow one, and changing the fuel filter too, so that's kind of a start.

    Well let me know your advice, and i like crazy setup's...so if a T66 would not be to stupid to put, then let me know! :)

    Thanks :blink:

    Don't you want to lower your comp. for a turbo??

    And you would prolly wanna change your injectors.

    Well i don't know if i'm right but, high compression less boost? and lower compression more boost? but with high compression i get more torque so more power at start.

    tell me if i'm wrong.

    what size turbo should i use? should i leave the compression like it is?

    t66? oh boy...


    here we go again.

    if you're willing to spend 10 grand, here we go-

    www.full-race.com for your turbo and manifold needs.
    $4000

    $1000
    www.hondata.com for your tuning software, gm 3-bar, and dyno time

    $4000
    [​IMG]
    get the block sleeved, 9.5:1 forged pistons, rods, etc...

    $1000
    3" exhaust
    injectors
    misc parts

    $500-$1000
    Gauges (boost, oil pressure, egt)

    opps, we already broke 11,000.

    are you sure you want to get into this?

    and please- don't get a t66. you won't make boost on that until 8000 rpms.
    t3/t04s will suit you just fine. FR63 or precision sc61/61 will suit you well into the 600+ hp ranges.
