    Hey guys! I got a D16z6 in my CRX. I'm running 9psi on my t3 turbo with fmu/link. My question is what is the usual times do people hit @ the drags with this motor (stock)? I'm hitting mid 14s now, but want to break at least 13's. what can I do to get more power besides internals?? Up the boost (whats safe? max on a T3)??

    mid 14's is probably the usual. what kind of tires are you using at the strip?

    You should easily put down 13s with slicks.

    my best time was 14.5 on a 00 civic EX. street crapy ass tires too.

    i think u can hit 13s easily with stock internals, get slicks

    VTC_CIVIC got 242WHP out of an LS running 10psi on a .50trim T3. That T3 will be able to push 15-17psi EASILY for that Z6 motor IFF you can properly manage the airflow / boost. FMU will not cut it for 15psi.

    If you insist on keeping the FMU, try getting a MSD BTM so that you can retard timing as boost increases. a FMU and BTM would probably be good for at least a couple pounds more. FMU+BTM will be asking for trouble past 12psi.

    why don't you consider moving over to TurboEdit, Uberdata or Hondata and tuning it? You'll get a lot more power (safely) out of that turbo if you can control timing going into boost. Lack of ignition retard in boost is the main thing limiting your boost levels / power production in the current setup.

    oh yeah, you'll probably want to start thinking about rods much past 12psi / 225 WHP (whichever comes first) cause you'll snap one like a twig if your tuning isn't perfect.
