    I have a 96 gsr motor in my 2000 civic si the motor is basically stock except I have fuel reg,AEM EMS,AEM intake.I was wondering if an Inline pro GT 35/61 T04e turbo is too big for my motor?

    sounds like itll be fine. dual ballbearing or no?

    i run a gt35r on my b16a so a 35r on a b18 would be quicker to spool./

    its a retarded turbo. i suggest it to everyone

    GT 35/61 comes with the GT wheel with the T04E Compressor Cover,
    3" inlet and 2" outlet and a 5-bolt discharge flange.
    Supports up to 600-hp at the flywheel with proper tuning.
    This is the specs on it from Inline pro.Thats all it says

    if it really is a gt35r then thats an awsome price. new from full-race they are $1,299.00. but at that price i would bring someone who knows turbos with you to see if its crapped. but even at that price i think you could buy it, rebuild it, and still save.

    how much power do you plan on making? most likely depending on power output the clutch will have to be upgraded, fuel injectors, and possibly bigger exhaust depending again on power and current size.

    oh and fuel pump sorry

    the exhaust is gonna be a lil restrictive, but 400 is definitely reasonable on a GSR with a GT35 (ish)

    yeah with that kinda power goal a bigger exaust would be beneficial. If you have everything you listed then I would say you are good but like every project something ( if not multiple things) will come up just make sure you have money before you start because you never know

    What size injectors are you running?

    Here is a formula I found on Evans-Tuning.com its a good site you should check it out

    (Power x BSFC) x (1 + Safety Margin) / (# of injectors)=pounds/hour

    BSFC for forced induction cars is between .60 to .70 using gasoline.

    Power is maximum horsepower level you want to run.

    Safety Margin is to be set between 15-20%.

    To illustrate this:

    Power=500 hp
    BSFC=.70
    Safety Margin=0.2

    500x0.70=350lbs/hr

    350lbs/hr/(4 injectors)=87.5 lbs per hour per injector

    To convert lb/hr to cc/min you multiply the # by 10.2, so

    87.5 lb/hr X 10.2=892.5 cc/min
