Don't mind robgoof he's kind of a troll. But there are threads on this site for building and turboing d16y8's so he's not totally out of line being a dick in this situation. Search before you ask and save us all some time.

Make a budget and stick with it. Figure out what you can spend each month, spend that and no more. And for your own sake, DO NOT USE A CREDIT CARD! No cash, no stash. Keep it that way. It's a marathon, not a sprint.

Start with maintenance. Learn how to set valve lash, replace timing belt, water pump etc, gets you nails dirty and some knowledge in your dome.

The y8 can take a turbo beating if built right, or if you just want reliable fun on the street you can keep the budget in check and build a nice little toy.

Depends on if you mean to drag race, or daily, or what not....

There are motors that can take more pressure then others, but internals can help net you some serious power in these D's.

Yeah don't mind me, the guy who just bought his first vtec honda two weeks ago. Sorry I fucked up a thread and learned a shitload about vtec. If you have any questions ask, I'll pay attention and do my best to help instead of calling you a n00b and telling you not to post.

Doesn't matter if I didn't know what vtec was 24 hours ago but unless I see robgoof post something worth a shit he's just a troll. IMHO anyways. Not like that matters since I've been here for 6 days.

Hve you done a compression test? do you know you need a rebuild or do you just want to rebuild b4 turbo for peace of mind? i ask because lots of well maintained dseries motors with high mileage are fine for turbo if theyr still healthy.also if you are going tomrebuild for turbo,research first .dont do an oem rebuild if only planning on 250hp or less.
Where to start id say search turbo builds ,how a turbo works,turbo tuning and fuel requirements.make a solid budget amount and desired hp goals and let us know and im sure youl get more specific info.
