    About how many horses would a b16 w/ 9:1 CR pistons and a intercooled T3 turbo put out at 14psi? At this boost level would I have to upgrade any of the egine internals? I have done a little research and I figured about 300hp at the crank, is this about right? If I ran 6-8psi in town could I use pump gas? My plan is to build a street crx capable of 11's at the track. Thanks

    P.S. Where should I get my b16?

    14 PSI from a t3 on an internally stock B16a is WAY pushing it. If you're using aftermarket 9:1 pistons, you SHOULD be ok, but the rod bolts start to hate life at about 350 hp.

    You should make about 250-275 at the wheels depending on the trim of the turbo. If it's small-ish, 200-225.

    At 14 PSI with correct tuning, pump gas should be fine, even at the track. You might want to back off the timing a little more on 14 PSI, though, just to be on the safe side.

    250 at the wheels in a LIGHT CRX, like 1800 pound, would be capable of some 11's if you can drive, and get the car to hook up.

    That's going to take about the largest t3.. a "super 60"

    You can order the big t3's from cheapturbo.com... $550.

    OR, if you get a Thunderbird Turbo Coupe, or Mustang SVO turbo froma junkyard, it's just one step down from the super 60.. It's a big 60 trim turbo.

    Depends on where you get it from... A junkyard will sell you one for $20 - $200 depending on condition.
