    I'm gonna go turbo with my teg, I'm hoping to get a full race kit. I want about 250-300 hp. I'm planning on running uberdata for a little bit until i have the funds to upgrade to neptune. I've got a walbro fuel pump coming, am i gonna need a fuel pressure regulator? I was thinking 550cc injectors but I have no idea what kind, like i have no idea about the saturated kind or anything. any help with those would be great. what else am i gonna need to make the setup work?

    If you get a Full-Race kit, 300hp is more then attainable, they are great quality and make power. If you are getting a fuel pump you might as well get a fuel pressure regulator, to get the pressure tuned right. The Walbro might cause the pressure to go up a few PSI.


    As far as injectors, i would get something like a 650cc for your setup. 550cc will work, but if you're like me, you are going to want more power and leaving a little room for improvement is always good.

    As far as saturated or peak&hold, saturated are only available up to 750cc's because of the slow response of saturated as far as opening and closing, in which peak&hold is better in higher power applications. After that only peak and hold are available and you will have to wire in a resistor box if you plan on keeping your Honda ECU.

    Let me know if you have any more questions.

    using a full race kit and neptune for a 250-300 hp goal is just, well, a waste of money. you don't need all that stuff.

    what are you doing to your bottom end?

    bottom end... nothing now. eventually i will build the bottom end, but right now i'm just focusing on the turbo before the summer. I've thought of putting together my own kit, i still might. i was actually looking at a t3/t04e locally. its got a 57 trim and .63 exhaust housing. would this work well with the gsr motor?

    you should build your block first.....i believe that if you build the block first @ 9.8:1 or if you have aem or microtech or even hondata you could get a way with 10 flat CR(correct me if i'm wrong) you can run the limit on most simple kits and achieve the best performance from a kit like the full race version....

    ..IMO i think the block can be one of the most expensive things you can buid....so do it first and get it out of the way....i wish i did.....

    but for your hp goal..better rings or just a simple refreshing of the engine should do


    i just think its better to upgrade at a later date with out having to worry about the block....just more psi

    A full race kit is a total waste to run 10 PSI on a stock block. Get a smaller turbo that is driveable not that laggy huge ass T3/T67. FWIW, I would never lower compression on a GSR to run less than 1 bar.

    i wasnt gonna go with the stage three kit for sure. probably just stage two. but someone should let me know about the t3/t04e turbo, if it'll work well with the gsr engine.
