    Ok i am able to get a garret t25 off a guy and was wondering if that would be decent enough for a turbo build. Now i plan on a b18c or b20z vtec and wanna shoot for over 250 to the wheels. I am gonna be resleeving getting new pistons rods etc and was wondering if that turbo is fine or if i should try and get bigger?

    The T25 will be way too small for either motor. Rods, pistons, and sleeves won't be necessary at all for 250whp, you will just be wasting your money. Oh and go with a b18c1, the stock b20 sleeves are worthless for boost.

    for about 250whp you wont need to do much to the b18c1, they can handel 300whp when tuned properly. the t25 is way to small.

    K cool ty guys. ya i wanna get one bit bigger but the whole money issue. I can get the machine stuff done cheap but other then that everything else is normal. OK what bout this question then. Is it worth overboring it to 84mm. And with the rods bearings pistons sleeces what psi could i run reliable.

    the diffrence in price for stock vs 84mm sleeves and pistons can't be too much right? so yea, i guess its worth it?
    lol

    no boreing with new sleeves


    i would check that the manufacturer says regarding what the roads and sleeves can hold, as well as the pistons... but more important than rods sleeves pistons is your tuning, whatcha running for fuel managment

    if you get low comp pistons and redo the entire bottom end then pretty much the skies the limit

    Yeah thats what i think as well. Will be getting valve train also. Aswell as other stuff as i move along (intake Mani etc). I most likely will use hondata as most shops around here use that. I would use uberdata but i don't think anyone around here works with it. Soz there ramrod i know you like your uber :p

    if you're going for 250 whp, there is no need to touch the motor at all.

    just get it tuned, with proper fuel management. none of this fmu or vafc hack crap
