Can't really tell, I never did see turbos on these Honda engines hooked up in that position.

Maybe this can help you:

This is an old pic of my project Civintegra, maybe you can use it as a "referance" guide.

*edit*
Post some pics of the integra body! :D

No, your turbo system is not plumbed correctly. The way it stands now exhaust gases are pushed directly into the engine :bloated: and the compressor is not hooked up to the engine at all.

Read through this thread (http://www.automotiveforums.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?s=&threadid=116333), should get you sorted.

Thanks 4 the link ales.
There's this page in there which: http://auto.howstuffworks.com/turbo1.htm has diagrams to show you where everything goes and work. I notice now, that you don't have any pipes leading to an intercooler. There's a really good How-to by Chris: http://www.automotiveforums.com/vbulletin/t59570.html

The intercooler is easy - you just stick it between the compressor and the intake manifold. And it's on the very same page of the "howstuffworks" article, you know.

One of our members sell turbo systems for Integras ans superchargers for Civics. Kinda "forgot" his name, but do a search and you'll be sure to find him. You could also scratch-build turbos, intercoolers, and build all the piping............

Maybe this will help, first two are of my car, the rest are some of my fellow members at turboD16.com They're not B18's or B16's but believe me, the basic setup is almost exacty the same.
