Re: Which Engine for Forced Induction??

alright, so here is what i'm thinking... get a b18c1 engine swap, re-do all the internals (pistons, rods.. anything else?) get the block sleeved *really freaking expensive.. but if i'm boosting to 15 psi i guess i should do it right?* buy componenets for a turbo... : VATN turbo ($3000 pricetag but from what i hear; well worth the money) intercooler, aem ems, all the turbo goodies (bov, wastegate) custom stainless steel piping for the works, custom fabricated stainless steel tubular manifold... running boost at 15 psi.... anything i've forgotten?

My head is spinning after reading through this entire thread. B18C1 this, H22 that, B18C5 thataway, ay yi yi. Even after all the info i've read in this entire forum, i'm still nowhere near figuring out what engine i'd like to swap into my car.

It's simple, if you want to go N/A go B18C5. F/I go B18B1 or B18C1, I'll explain for F/I-
If you don't have a lot of money-go B18B1 swap. You don't have to touch the internals and you can get 250-270 HP out of it boosting 12 PSI.
B18C1 you have to rebuild the internals to lower the compression, plus sleeve the block to run 15+ PSI. That cost a lot, but will make way more power of course.
Now, if you have ''big plans'', but low on cash-buy the B18C1 but don't touch the internals-just boost 8 PSI. Now you have your foundation, save up year or two and yank it back out to rebuild.

Re: Which Engine for Forced Induction??

There is a local shop that sells turbo ready motors, for 3000 bux sleeved w/ pistons, rods, and a crank on a stock head w/ cam gears, fuel presure reg, and injectors. I have seen these B18B motors taken to 400 whp w/ dyno tuning. (400whp on a honda Is more than you know what to do with). These motors ayso get over 100K w/ dyno tuning @32.5 psi daily driven motor. If you guys want details, I will call and ask.

Don't waste your money on a VATN turbo, and if you only want 15 pounds of boost and 350-ish WHP don't waste your money on sleeves either. Plenty of people doing 400 and up WHP on the stock GSR sleeves with pistons and rods. Hell, one of the cars @ inlinepro went 10.5's @ 140 on a stock-sleeve GSR motor, so I think you're going to be OK in a more mild car.

Re: Which Engine for Forced Induction??

no? what would you suggest for a turbo then? i'm in canada so i'm not too sure what kind of parts are available around here... i'd assume most things, but probably at a pretty hefty pricetag. yeah and by the way this car's got to be able to be daily driven.. need it to go to work and back every day...

For your turbo, i'd call up Art @ Laskey Racing. Their phone number is 949-400-0334, they are a PTE dealer and I got my turbo from them. I too am from Canada, it is incredibly expensive to buy and build stuff here, but you gotta pay to play.

Re: Which Engine for Forced Induction??

i see, what part of canada are you in... because i'm on the west coast.. and that number sounds like it's from ontario or something... also.. what type of turbo is it (ball bearing.. size.??) and yes... it is a freaking kick in the pants to buy anything in this country

Re: Which Engine for Forced Induction??

there probaly all the same. the main companies who make turbo timers are greddy, apexi, blitz, and HKS. in fact i think there the only companies. i would go by price.
