    I've been putting my jdm b16a together for some time now, heres what ive ended up with so far

    supertech 81.5 mm 9:1 forged pistons
    eagle forged rods
    acl main/rod bearings
    supertech valves
    supertech springs
    supertech retainers
    arp head studs
    cometic gasket kit
    stock cams
    yonaka stage 3 6 puck, wouldnt have bought it but i read a couple good things
    itr s80 hydro lsd tranny

    now im just looking for some oppinions, but would i be safe running it on a gt3076r or similar and shooting for a daily driver set up around 350 horse with a drag tune of around 400-425? trying to stay away from to high of a boost figure. lets get some thoughts going here, cheers.

    why rev so high? i would stay around 8500 or so, at least until you optimize the setup for higher rpm powerband.... victor x, bigger than stock throttle body, and some better cams.

    sounds like a solid boost build, and yes i think 300-350 is a good goal on pump gas. you dont need more than that on the street anyways, traction is a real issue.

    ok great. do you think a turbonetics t3/t4 .63 ar be suitable for the goal i have in mind or would i be putting to much boost to get the 425 id like to see max, if not what would be the best? will a 2.5 inch downpipe get the job done or would i be better with a 3 inch? Thanks for helping out hondaswap has my made my first build a shit ton easier
