My goal is if I can achevie 200whp in my d16y8. I just rebuilt the entire block and the cylinder head assembly. New rings,bearings for the block. New breather box and pcv valve. Laped the valves and replaced 2 springs in the cylinder head. New vavles seals and new gaskets etc.. its a strong running motor. And iam very happy with it.

I was wanting to turbo the motor now. I don't want to kill it. I just want to get more horses out of it. And would really like to increase the torque then what this motor does now. Can anyone help me out. On what size turbo and what size piping and what size injectors and intercooler to use. Iam still doing research on this but this site seems to be one of my best bets. :)

yep 200 is easily attainable.

In hindsight... it would have been better to do the rebuild with stronger internals.

yea thanks, that is very helpful. I feel i can take on the world of turbo now. Wish me luck. :)

I wasn't planing on doing anything with this motor. I just did it to pull the HF out and have a fresh dependable long lasting motor for me to travel back and fourth to work in. But iam thinking about buying another more practical car.

Yeah I just put a kit in my crx a few months ago and I hear ya. I need to get better management for sure. After I put the turbo in to my battery goes dead a lot. I know its not turbo related at all but just for a coincidence.
