Turbo Information

Articles and how-to's for forced induction vehicles.
The purpose of this thread is to give a basic walk through of turbocharging a Honda. It is neither a guide, nor an exact build list. It was designed merely to get new people pointed in the right direction of making some power. First, we'll start off with some basic knowledge. These are things you should know and understand (in my opinion) before attempting to turbo your car. 1. Understand what a turbocharger is, and how it works. (How a Turbocharger Works) 2. Understand the difference...
 
How to Read a Turbo Compressor Map By JustinSane A compressor map can be a daunting thing to look at, but I will show you a few simple tricks to use a turbos compressor map to learn a couple important pieces of information. In this tutorial I will use the TD05 big 16g currently on my CRX as an example. You can download the map below and print it out to make it easier to follow the tutorial. Lesson one- determine how much flywheel horse power a turbo can support. Ok a few facts that your...
I just found this while I was trying to figure out exactly what size my turbo was, It's a very good site if you want to know what you have, or what to get. It puts it all in perspective. Plus all of the compressor maps are included, Very nice website. http://www.bsmotor.com/restricted/tabell.html Buzz1167 Jon N
 
One of the questions that seems to come up quite often on this site is about what is needed if you decide to piece together your own turbo kit. This is easy to do in your own garage if you have a means to cut pipie and a welder. If you have the technical know-how to put a flywheel into your car you can put together a turbo kit using resources on the internet. Most people start by searching eBay and find a kit similar to this these usually run for between $700 and $3000 dollars...
 
Original thread from: www.preludepower.com I wrote this thread to help out all those who want to goBoostedorTunetheir 3rd Gen Ludes. I noticed alot of new people are starting to ask about Boosting right off the start, so I took it upon myself to help out all theNooBiesand try to cut down on the massive overposting of others saying"Search!!!!". I hope this points you in the right direction. I make no warranty's nor guarantee's, this is a collection of information I collected from the site...
This is going to be a multi-part series that will be written over the course of a couple days. It will overview of building a complete EFI system for your turbo Honda and taking it all the way from parts in a box to a high-power, running correctly machine. A basic outline of this thread is:What Parts are required/already a part of the EFI system Getting it all together Getting it to run correctly Making power
I found this list on the net... figured it would make a good FAQ http://www.gamesbbs.com/~turbosi/junkyard_...turbo_list.html AUDI-Europe 200 88 2.2L KKK K26 AUDI-Europe 200 88-91 2.2L KKK K24 AUDI-Europe 200 Quattro 91 2.2L KKK K24 AUDI-Europe 5000 80-88 2.2L KKK K26 AUDI-Europe 5000 Diesel 2.0L 88 KKK K24 AUDI-Europe 5000 Quattro 82-88 2.2L KKK K26 AUDI-Europe S4 Quattro 92-94 2.2L KKK K24 AUDI-Europe S4 Biturbo/tt-180 99 2.7L/1.8L KKK K03 AUDI-Europe TT-225hp 99 1.8L KKK K04...
Static and Effective Compression A debate that often is pondered by not only Honda enthusiasts but all import performance enthusiasts is whether one wants to go the N/A route, or boost with a turbo or supercharger. While each has their own benefits, debating this is out of the scope of this article. This article is about how boost adds power, beyond the saying "it adds more air to burn". We all know that motors use compression to make power. For example, a B16A makes 10.2:1 or 10.4:1...
Detonation By: Dennis Adams Detonation Detonation or "knocking" arises from the production of an explosion wave in the combustion chamber. This is due to rapid ignition and combustion. A portion of the unburnt air/fuel mixture becomes compressed prematurely, which in turn rapidly increases in temperature until it ignites uncontrollably and almost instantaneously. The shock wave produced has a characteristic of a metallic sound and can vary in magnitude. It can range from a mild form...
EGT, or Exhaust gas temp. gauge is a very important tool to have on a boosted car. putting it in different places can alter the readings. the best place to put it is about 2 inches away from the head on the 3rd runner of the manifold. Why? #3 is ALWAYS the hottest cylinder. 1+4 are more surrounded by water than 2+3 are, an because of firing order, 3 is hotter than 2.
On a stock map sensor, the amount of boost you can run is limited due to the fact that it doesn't know what to do with it, and throws a code. OBD0 supports .65 KG/cm2 or, 9.24 PSI OBD1 and OBD2 support .75 kg/cm2 or, 10.66 PSI If you want more boost than that, you need to run a GM 3-bar map sensor (common) or others like the gm 2.5 bar, the AEM 3.5, or the skunk2 4 bar map sensor. There are other super large ones out there like 5 or 6 bar but unless you're making 50 psi or more are...
To help us all help you with this question, we need to know what motor and what mods are done or planned to do for your motor. Then we need to know what turbo you are running or plan on running. Every turbo puts out a different amount of CFM's at the same psi. In addition, a car which has better flow in general (i/e head port/polish, high flow manifold, throttle body, free exhaust, etc), and more compression will make more power on less psi as well.
