Best Turbo kit for b18b?

I am looking for a reliable turbo kit for a b18b in an eg hatch, I want to run low 13's high 12's street trim but keep the lag down because it is a daily driver, I want a kit that includes header, turbo, piping, intercooler. I will be running a hondata ecu so I will take care of fueling by other means than what the kit supplies so a kit with money wasted on secondary injectors or raising rate fuel pressure solenoids is just that a waste of money :) thx!

greddy? nice quality but doesnt even come with intercooler....now that just doesnt make sence, ask pissedoffsol about kyle at ks motorsports, he can get u a high quality kit for around 2750$, but the piping will need to be cut in sum places.

I thought all GReddy kit's came with piping and intercooler?

I may be wrong, but I thought they did.



And in my own opinion, a fairly standard turbo is the T3/T4 hybrid, while B would say get the T3/60-1.
And with him being more than likely the most knowledgeable person on this site, I would trust his opinion (not to mention he will be using that, so it's not just a suggestion.)

Search these forums for 60-1 and there's a few threads (one I started included) which discuss turboing the LS, and what turbo is recommended.

What about the rev hard stage 1 or 2? I was thinking the stage 2 since I def. want an intercooled kit? anyone have experience with this kit I think it will put out plenty of power for my goals but I was wondering what lag would be like, a t3/60 I could get with the ball bearing center section option but I dont know anyone that sells a kit with optional turbos or someone who sells a kit that will fit a t3 without a turbo.
thx

anyone have pics of the drag kit installed on a b18b? how is the fit and finish of the kit? also there was a web site I saw that sold frankenstien kits where you could mix and match different components from different kits

Nah, greddys kits dont come with an intercooler or bov. They do come with a piping though.

I'd also recommend a t3/60-1, you can get them with ball bearing center sections. After doing tons of research on whether to get a t3/60-1 or a t4/t04e, i decided to go with the 60-1. A lot of people on honda tech have direct experience with both turbos, many of them decided to upgrade from the t04e to the 60-1. They say it pulls a lot harder than the t3/t04e and if boost came on any sooner then traction would be a serious issue.

drag kits suck and are over priced.

ks-motorsports.com

and do not ever EVER run a deltagate wastegate so help you god. Standard equip on 98% of the gay kits out there.

Checked out that site. I like the Dell-like make your own kit setup...but for around 2800 shipped instead of 3400+ on the site, I don't think Drag is a bad deal. They both had the T3/T4 anyway...have you had bad experiences with them. I was thinking about running one beacause of the price and that it came with everything.

You get what you pay for. I'm with B, go with a custom kit, with better parts and hondata from ks-motorsport. I will be using the t3/60-1 in my project later on.

Again, dont use a Delta wastegate. #2 reason why turbo motors blow. They DO produce boost spikes.

if you are goin with a do it urself kit, look into the sr20 turbos, especially the s14 or s15, they come ball bearing and can handle decent boost, probly more than u should feed ur honda
