Worst thing, it will still be a virgin with that virgin ecu. Get I/c piping from ebay and a cheap 450cc injectors, chipped yout ecu, get it tuned. You might be able to get away using stock fuel pump.

it will prob throw a code when it sees boost with a stock ecu.. spend 20 and get a chip kit so you can put a base map on there.. i ran 7psi on stock injectors but i wouldent run past 6 on stock injectors,, you also will need a wideband at least to keep things from blowing

Walboro is $80 shipped including install kit...I wouldn't use the stock pump but that's just me. DSM 450c are like $50 used. DIY boost controller for $10. Resistor boxes are free from the junkyard or I'll flat-rate one to you if you Paypal me the $5-6 for shipping.

It wouldn't go past 6 because that's where the factory map sensor maxes out at. Duh.

dont know where some people get there info but.....

our d-series have a 1.7 bar map sensor

lets do some math :D

atmospheric pressure = 1bar

1bar = ~14.5psi

14.5 x 1.7 = 24.99 psi

24.99psi - 14.5(atmospheric pressure) = 10.49

so a stock honda map sensor can read up to 10.49psi

you will be fine on a HEALTHY stock fuel pump up to ~ 220-250whp

i wouldnt boost 1psi on stock injectors ......dsm 450's are cheap as hell

i wouldnt boost 1psi without a chipped ecu.... Xenocron Tuning: Fuel Management and DIY Tuning Resource Center for Honda and Acura Performance - Hondata, eCtune, Neptune, Crome, TurboEdit, Uberdata / www.phearable.org

you dont have a turbo manifold listed

you need a wideband if you plan on running a basemap....if you continue to run a base map change your oil every 1.5k miles of nice driving and every 1k of hard miles.....basemaps run rich, running rich causes alot of fuel to get blown past the rings, lots of fuel past the rings means its diluting your oil....dilute your oil with gasoline say goodbye to your bearings :)

First "." And "," are your friends.
Second there is no need to rush the install. Just keep it all boxed up till u have everything. Trust me im where u are. Got everything but management.
3rd. It will lean out and throw a rod if u run it with stock ecu and injectors.
4th honda map is good for 10psi always verify this via datalog not boost gauge.
5th. Do u have emissions where u live? If so ur have to remove the kit to pass since your obd2

a trained monkey can chip an ecu....supplys will cols about $20

40w soldering iron is $10.99 desolder braid is $4.19 and silver bearing solder is $5.99 all at radio shack

take your time....dont drip the solder onto the joint heat the joint and melt the solder on the joint

if your not willing to do it your looking at `$120-150 for a chipped p28
