How much boost can you run with a stock second gen B16 without any internal mods? If you need to modify the engine, what would be reommended on a limited budget? Thanks.
AHHHHHHHH! It all depends on what turbo you plan on useing! The CFM's on every turbo are different! 8 psi on a small turbo would be fine, but on larger applications you will blow you headgasket right out on 5psi! Please be more specific...

intercooled? 8-10.
non IC'ed, 6-8

and is it TUNED? if you only have an FMU, you aren't tuned.

that would be my safe guess. im sure you could run more, but if you arent tuned by hondata, dont go higher than that
