    b20 block or b18 block which ever can hold more boost? which one do u think?
    b18 head cause i have one built already with new valvetrain, skunk intake manifold cause i have one of those already,
    recomend brands for these-
    sleeves
    rods
    pistons
    fmu- guess vortech will do
    i dont know about the turbo setup prolly t3/4 dont know what brand yet
    dont know a shit load about turbo's but know enough to instal and other shit but let me know what has worked best for ur setup. what brand turbo timer and boost controller. this shit costs alot of money so i have to bug all of u and find this shit out so i can do it right the first time and get quality parts. any info will help, thanks

    b18 and b20 are going to be about the same in their stock capability. What you want is a block guard probably. And don't start fucking with FMUs and shit, either do a VAFC hack or get standalone engine management.



    And we have a new winner for most ridiculous sig. lol.

    ok it looks like you have a dinky ass compressor and wheel

    you need the turbine complete with center section, then you have to send the parts in and get the wheel balanced, too much work imo for a little t3

    seems to me like a lot of unknowledgable people nowadays are just going to ebay and searching for "turbo" then they proceed to buy it regardless of what it actually is or if they know what it does, as long as it is bling bling

    I'm a little partial to B20's myself. The heads are the same (virtually) for the non-vtec motors. I'd keep the turbo small for a street/strip setup. Ususally people use their cars 95% on the street. I'd say the best and cheapest turbo would be a t25. It should give you tons of boost by 2500 and start running out near 5500. If you don't plan on changing valvesprings, don't spin that motor over 6200. The stocks springs just don't like it, even though the motor makes power to 6700. I agree that the hondata option is great. The next best option would be an injector controller like sdsefi.com sells. If those two options don't meet your budget, then don't boost over 5psi anyways. The damned fmu's just aren't very accurate or reliable.

    B, how you figure the t3/t4 means TURBONETICS?

    T3 is a Garrett term, as is t4. The t3/t4 means it's a hybrid Garrett turbo...

    Just as the Precision Turbos website shows.. and they have NOTHING to do with Turbonetics...
