I am trying to plan a project for my 95 civic i want to put a turbo on it but im new to the Honda stuff any ideas
that may sound all good but i am trying to keep what motors came factory in the car in it thus me wanting to build my d15You should put a GTX4082 on a sidewinder manifold, with 4" vband intercooler piping, connected to an All in Fabrication intake manifold, feeding a K20R head fully built, sitting on a K24 built block. I think you could run it on stock injectors and ECU as long as you run an FMU and missing link.. pretty sure.
Welcome to DSO, start reading, and be prepared to get flamed for this thread.
Needs to be moved to Noob section lol
Well the hp is doable without doing any motor work..that may sound all good but i am trying to keep what motors came factory in the car in it thus me wanting to build my d15
right now I'm on a low budget but i would like to make close to 175 or so and not get over like 7lbs of boost and i also want to keep some mileage like 30 hwy but idk if that's possible I'm new to modding Honda's :yinyang:
thank you for the advice i know the psi doesn't mean anything im just going off what a shop said out here that with my stock internals and 286k miles i shouldn't go over 7lbs or so and with some saving the price sounds like i could do it i also work at a auto parts store so i should get some of the parts cheaperWell the hp is doable without doing any motor work..
Still need a budget number $$$$$.
Please do some more reading as psi doesnt mean anything. Once you learn that your be on a better track.
30mpg is easy. I get that now. The key to mpg with a turbo and to now be in full boost every moment of your drive. In other words dont drive like and ass and you should get the same mpg as you did before.
Now a great tune will net you more mpg like 40-50 depending on the tune.
Will all that said you can check out my build for some information. There is a parts list on the first page and some good pix on the last few pages.
But since im a lil bored ill help you get started on your build.
You have a 95 d15 so thats an obd1 p06 ecu.
Have it chipped and put a base map on it for turbo with bigger injectors.
Buy bigger injectors. DSM 450cc, RC 440, or if you wanna spend alil more RDX 410cc.
Get a cast iron manifold from ebay. Are you trying to keep ac??
Then start looking for a turbo. A t25 will make the car fun. spools up fast and will meet your goal.
SO a recap.
Buy injectors. 410cc-450cc $60-$250 (use/new)
Chip ecu $25-$60 (depends on the person )
GEt a wideband gauge even if your not tuning it yourself. $160-200
Intercooler kit $250
Bov $50-80(some kits dont come with them)
Turbo $150-300 (again depends on what kind and if its new or used)
Oil/coolant lines $60-80
Downpipe ($60-80 if you can fab or just modify and ebay one).
So around $875 on the low side. Sounds like something you can do?
Aslo ruff prices and parts list.
With the high mileage make sure the motor is good before boosting. YOu could just tear her apart and check the specs on ever and replace the main parts. piston rings, oil pump etc...thank you for the advice i know the psi doesn't mean anything im just going off what a shop said out here that with my stock internals and 286k miles i shouldn't go over 7lbs or so and with some saving the price sounds like i could do it i also work at a auto parts store so i should get some of the parts cheaper
thank you :bigok:
Replace all that first. And see thats the thing 10psi from a small turbo can be the same as 1psi from a big.tirbo. So there very.dumb.saying 7 is the max they would run.they are not just going off of psi but he just wouldn't recommend more than 7
I think the bottom end of my motor is sound but I'm not sure about the top end it has a new head gasket water pump and timing belt im getting a bad valve tick from it and the place i took it to when i got the pump and belt done said they adjusted it but the sound didn't chance they said it was because the stem seals are leaking a bit and that was why it didn't change but i don't burn oil or leak it so dose that sound like they lied to me on that
Yea buy that and call it a day.i found this on the website for the auto part store i work at
