    I'm about to get my tax return, and i have decided upon turbo charging my d16z6. i have found several good deals on T3 kits on eBay, and I was wondering how much boost my Z6 can handle? It's all stock, with a PM6 ECU (CRX Si), and what else has to be changed? other than what the turbo kit comes with, what will I need to do to prep my motor?

    I'm looking at a T3 Kit. Don't know much about turbos. I'm just looking to find out how much boost my motor will handle. T3 is all I know. My buddy is helping me make descisions.

    Oh. Interesting. This I did not know. I thought that the amount of boost had only to do with the HP increase. I will get some specs on a kit I am looking at and start another thread with more exact info. Thanks a lot guys!

    that motor can safely run 6-8 lbs of boost, we found this out ona civic swap we did. it is a huge increase for that motor but you will love it....the tourqe is amazing. i reccomend the greddy kit...and add an intercooler froma 94 eagle talon. it is a side mout that fits on that kit PERFECTLY.

    yes, i was yelling.

    now, let me explain.

    psi means jack shit. its power that means something.
    a given metal rod or whatever will hold a certain amount of power before it brakes. or, detonation will become so bad from the extra heat on cast pistons and you will blow up.

    a t25 with a .57 a/r flowing at 20 psi makes roughly (example) the same amount of horsepower as a t3/t04e .63 a/r at 6 psi.

    lets take that a step further

    a t3/to4e with a .57 a/r flowing at 12 psi makes roughly (example) the same amount of horsepower as a t3/t04e .80 a/r at 6 psi.

    can you now see why psi means jack shit? trim of the turbo, wheel size and so forth make SUCH a difference.
    braging/talking about running X psi on your car only shows your ignorance. Whoopdie shit that your block can hold 20 psi. so do stock nissans. and they also run small ass turbos stock.
