ok...ok...ok I know about the stickers and especially that itīs not vtec nor dohc... although maybe one day it will be vtec lol.... nahh I donīt trust vtec engines with turbo. They put up nice numbers but in the long run they donīt last longer than non vtec ones in turbocharged engines.

I bought some 450cc injectors and am planning on installing them on my civic. What exactly do I need in order for them to run? I already know about the resistor box but what else?

Hey man, congrats on starting to work on your car. i know alot of guys are hating on you for the whole ebay thing, dont worry about it. experience is experience nonetheless....i will say that getting a crap setup is going to give you some headache...but you will learn from it and be able to actually teach people about it..so congrats man on getting some real experience.

Thanks Ek-booster, Iīve been running the turboed civic for about 1-2 months and the only issue I had was the clamps on the piping falling off when I got over 10 psi. I am currently running 6-7 psi until I get my ecu chipped and tuned, then I will go 12. Oh yeah, and that 2 of the 4 screws holding the manifold and turbo together fell of (just got 2 more and done)but everything else works nice. I wasnīt so bad after all.

Promise to upload video tomorrow, Iīve been too busy steppin on the pedal and enjoying the sweet sound of the turbo spool up and hearing the bov PHHHSSSST! lol
When I get some time I will take it to the dyno and show the results. Well, I might wait until I get it tuned which will take around 1-2 weeks or take it now show results, then take it when itīs tuned and compare.

Well, from my experience I would recommend the ebay kit but a decent one at least. For the price itīs a complete package and like you said if anything goes wrong well it wont be expensive. You can upgrade later anyways. Just one thing, donīt keep the bov and manifold that comes with the package(well, the one I bought and if you want to keep A/C), change the manual boost controller, and I would suggest buying a kit that comes with the turbo downpipe since my cousin had to make it for me and it took a LOT of work and time to make it fit right.

Well, I didnīt upload the video since my turbo oil feed line cracked.....shitty line....well I will get it replaced. I will not complain since I think I was the cause lol, I was adjusting the A/C fan and I moved the oil line a little to the left when I heard a sort of crack but didnīt pay attention. 1 minute later a bunch of smoke from under the hood showed up and to my suprise about 3 oil leaks where comimng out of the oil line and spraying everywhere. Had to buy more oil and today as I write the oil line is being changed. The video WILL be done if not today tomorrow.




Finally the video, and some pics too:
