    On a B16A w/ 8.5-9:1 C/R and a couple CTR/ITR parts (pistons/cams/etc)...how much boost will this setup be able to take? I was thinkin of getting crane/crower/competion/etc. cams but i like using honda parts...just dont know if OEM can handle 20+ boost...thanks.

    20psi?..most likely not. maybe around 9psi with tuning. even then because of the increased power you might want to upgrade your connecting rods(for +~250whp) for aftermarket ones.

    Most likely not, especially if you increase your static compression with CTR pistons.

    With the right turbo setup, good fuel management and proper tuning you could get 250+ whp out of your b16 (OEM honda internals) pretty easy and have it be reliable. 300whp should even be attainable. My buddy made 277whp @ 14 psi on his b16 with a junkyard T3 .60/.63 turbo. I'm sure his new sc61 will be making a lot more power and he won't have to run as much boost to get the same numbers. We can't really give you a specific "psi" you can run though because that depends on too many things like horsepower goals, size of the turbo, etc...

    thanks. thats exactly what i needed to know. i was doin some research on found that comp cams stage 1 exhaust and stage 2 intake would be the best bet. also probe racing has some nice forged connecting rods and low-compression pistons.
