This summer I will be rebuilding my d16y8 (in a 96 civic ex)for boost; lets say 18psi. I have put together a parts list (in no particular order) of everything I could think of off the top of my head. I'm looking to only put the best of quality inside my engine so lets ignore cost. I would appreciate it if you could look over this list real quick and tell me what would be a good brand/company for certain parts or possibly let me know if I missed something (I already have the turbo and ramhorn exhaust manifold).

List:

forged pistons (SRP?)
forged connecting rods (eagle?)
spiro locks
piston rings
valve springs/retainers
arp head studs
re-build kit (bearings)
re-sleeve/bore block/blueprint engine
3-angle valve job
fuel filter (just bought aem)
fuel injectors (precision, rc 750 cc?)
fuel pump (walbro 255?)
obd1 conversion harness for tuning
gauges (oil, boost, etc)
3 bar map sensor (omni?)
chipped ecu
63-65mm throttle body
catchcan (remove pcv)
wastegate
BOV
intercooler
head gasket
intake gasket (hondata?)
cam (crower?)
adjustable cam gear (aem?)

SuperTech will do the job.. they are pretty decent

You have the Springs and Ti Retainers kit for the D16Y8 @ $300 give or take a few bucks.

you never mentioned your goals for the project... so fill us in. (street, drag, auto-x, ???)

PSI is relative...
10 psi from a t3 60 trim may make 200whp
while,
10psi from a gt35r may make 400whp
(just as an example, not sure of exact numbers but you get the idea)

so tell us whp numbers and not boost pressures...
or
if you are set on 18psi also provide us with a whp number so you we can give you an idea of the turbo that fits the bill

help us out mangggggggggggg ;)
