First time ever building an engine, doing it in a shed with someone dumber than me. Anyways I got a 98 EX 5 speed, had a d16y7 swapped into it before i bought it with about 140k on it. Mods that are on it are stage 2 clutch, lightweight flywheel, y8 manifold i believe as well. (no idea about...
Hello everyone! I am redoing my motor/turbo setup this winter, and I'm wondering (ballpark) what this new setup will spool at. I know there is a pretty wide range on any given setup, but any information will be helpful. My last setup used a stock head/cam/intake and a smaller $106 eBay T3, and...

So my buddy picked up a civic for dirt cheap but its clean, we have plans to slap a CXracing turbo and some cheap parts on to try to make around 200hp for as low of a budget as possible, nothing crazy ambitious. Its a Non-VTEC D17 but due to the fact its OBDII getting the ability to tune is...
When i bought it: Stock (only K&N)
List: Too much to list here (Vitara/Eagle set up ; T04e Turbo for low/mid range)
No used parts, everything bought new
Have to tune it again because i did big changes since last tune, but got me 0,7 bar with 270whp and 350nm (wastegate...
So about a month ago I put a turbo on my d16y8. Prior to this, I never really had any issues. After putting the turbo in, I got walbro 255 fuel pump, some off brand 550cc injectors and a p72 chipped ecu. When I first tried to start the car it started just fine. As the days followed the...

My current ignition map that im messing with:
Does anyone have any pointers? it seems to be running and driving fine. Is it too much timing? I was trying to make the turbo...
Hi everyone, started searching the forums for information on boosting my D16y7. Picked up a 2000 civic dx hatch 5spd w/105k as a project to learn/have fun with/build. Currently finishing up replacing/upgrading all the old worn factory parts..brakes, suspension, mounts, and bushings etc. and...
So I just finished putting together my turbo d16y7 (450cc njectors, p28, walbro 255, etc...) and it starts up just fine, but theres a MASSIVE exhaust leak from what appears to be the hot side of the turbo, maybe from the cast manifold, or both. does anyone have a solution for this? all the bolts...
