Yo wass up I am new the Honda scene and just want to share my build with everyone so I can get help or help people. I bought a 1996 Honda civic in April and recently started to fix it up, I got tired of the low power it made on the stock d16y7. I am going to build a turbo kit because I dont feel like swapping engines. I am only going to be boosting 6psi because I love the gas milage my single slammer makes. Anyways here some pics

Heres the car wene I first bought it, I was originally looking for a EG but the only reason I got it was because it had a clean body and was clean title

Welcome to the honda world; it is very profitable to make low quality parts for unsuspecting "honda-tuners." With that understood, ditch the manifold and the FMU, it will save you a lot of headaches and congrats to you for finding a nice car to build.

Becuase its junk, thats why the ONLY reason to use it, is to get yourself to a tuner. All it does is raise fuel pressure the more boost it see's via vacuum hose. Its just a shafty product and is a terrible replacement for a good tune. Just remember the tune is where its at. haha
