I'm going Turbo on my Civic. I have most of the parts and need advice as I am new to turbo Civics.

I have a 98 DX Coupe with a D16y7.
I currently have I/H/E and a Y8 Manifold and TB.
I know I will lose the I and the H when I install the Turbo.

These are the parts I have, I plan to start with 7 psi max.

T3/T4 T04 57 Compressor wheel trim, .63 A/R turbine, .50 A/R Compressor

T3/T4 Manifold with External 38mm Wastegate

Type S BOV

3 Inch Stainless Downpipe with High flow Cat(May not use the cat)

Front Mount Intercooler with all piping.

Manual Boost Controller

Turbo Oil Lines feed and return

All hoses, T's and fittings.


This is everything I have. What am I missing?

Can I run this at 7 Psi safely?

Am I going to need an FMU or Injectors? What size injectors and what ratio FMU?

I know everyone says FMU's are no good but every quality kit I see runs one.

I am only running 7 PSI after all.

Will I need a new fuel fump and FPR?

I am running a Y8 Manifold, Rail, Injectors, FPR and Throttle body. All of which are in new condition.

What kind of times should I expect from a Y7 Turboed with a T3/T4 at 7PSI?

My car has no A/C and is light.

Thanks for your input.

don't skimp out on management; get a OBD2->OBD1 conversion harness, an OBD1 ECU (i beleive a p28...) , and 450+cc injectors. I have no idea what time you will run, but that turbo has a strong top-end powerband, i'd recomment building the bottom end before you start snaping rods....

i used ssauto and it put me in the low 13's on 9-10lbs of boost and if that is the ssauto wastegate it will run that out of the box. i used dsm 450 injectors and did the obd0- obd1 conversion for management i had to use a different distributor and i am not sure but you may check into that before you put your car down. i weighed in at 1980 with me sitting in the car so i would expect a little slower times with a DX than a CRX. but i would hope for something in the high 13 low 14 range.

i don't know for sure but that looks almost like what i got from ssaut a while back it may be a different company selling it. but i would be sure to use an oil restrictor when you put the turbo on. b/c if it is ssauto it will use some oil if it is not restricted

Humm.....that Turbo is too big prolly for your goals man.....i would go with a T3....look at the different Trim sizes etc. A T3/T4 will spool late on your stock block....yes! the power will be nice, but a smaller turbo will be more fun on the street..and yes! you will need a new fuel pump..injectors...and something to manage everything...this is the ""correct"" way to set tit all up. SEARCH! for more info..its all here and waiting to be [email protected]!....Me2Cents..

Every word of this sentence has no bearing or truth.
What company is my garbage stuff made by?
How many vendors do YOU know since you know that anyone can become a vendor?

How many of these turbokits have you held in your hands let alone experienced?

Show me proof that SS autocrome somehow turned around their terrible feedback and have good feedback on there other names.

Why would they still use the SSAUtocrome name?

Look at the damn feedback and show me one person that says the kit they bought was crap and I'll show you 600 positives.

Truth is you are an Hater and (trying) to diss other people makes your miserable 14,000 post soul feel better.

Right on you go guy, thanks for the input. Hey are you like trying to have the most posts. You would be king immortal lord balla. Do it with insightful posts, not assinine remarks.

Damn, You're right, I should have bought a 1989 CRX with the money instead, this way I could have a 17 year old POS and no Boost.

Thanks,

Dan

fastdan; chill out man! That is indeed a SSAC kit with a cast mani from a DRAG kit. The FMIC should be your first clue; it says 'JDM' on it.... have you ever seen any quality aftermarket parts (except for password:JDM) that actually have 'JDM' printed on them?

I dk about you, but I (and i assume most ppl are the same way) give positive feedback on eBay right after i recieve my order and give it a quick visual inspection... i don't throw it on my car; drive it hard for a year, then, when something breaks, finally go leave negative feedback for the seller....

I'm not gonna hate on your kit; just telling YOU to stop hating on everybody else because SSAC is widely know to be shitty...

At least you don't have to worry about the manifold cracking :TU:

My suggestions: use an oil restrictor so you don't blow the seals, get some 550 cc injectors, obd2 -> ob1 conversion harness, and an OBD1 ecu (p28?) and tune with crome, start saving $$$ for internals; that turbo wasn't meant to only run 7-8 psi ;) Good luck!

and it must REALLY suck to try to come off defending your $600 kit as not being ss when thats what that company is.. lol all the same stuff just a different CAST mani.. which is still probably junk...
you can flame away at people on here but when you ask for help.. and someone tells you what you have.. and you wrong.. you really look like a jackass

i mean yor asking us to help you.. yet you say every quality kit runs an fmu.. and make a couple other stupid remarks.. honestly.. why dont you ask the company you bought the kit off of what to do.. im sure they will help you so much

not only are you ignorant on the subject, but your shit talking is about to get your bitch ass kicked from this site...

who the fuck do you think makes ssauto's stuff?? do you actually think ssauto makes their own parts?? get fucking real. ever wonder why there are 500 different companies selling what appears to be the exact same thing on ebay, only with different names? because all that garbage is made by the same fucking company!!!!

want to become a vendor?? be my guest
http://www.alibaba.com/

contact any of those Chinese companies and they will be happy to set up an account for you.

before you act like you're fucking badass, do some research so you dont get fucking owned like right now :TD:

Everybody talk so much about how the manifold cracks but I never seen a cracked one. Everyone says about how the turbo will fall off.

To me until I see proof they are all just rumors to me. All these rumors were started by some jackoff that is upset that he got beat with his high end kit by a cheaper kit. OR possibly created by an 89 CRX driver. I love the CRX, I had one in 1993.

Truth is, my manifold is not going to crack, My Turbo is not going to fall off.
I'm going to install it and it's going to work just fine, because I know how to.

I wasn't asking for help, I was asking the people on here with insight to contribute it.

I wasn't asking for some hater to write one silly line about how it's shit and I wasted my money. I knew damn well what it was I bought, If the manifold cracks, I'll buy a new one. If my turbo falls off I'll go back and get it.

If I can't find it I will get a Garrett and it will still be cheaper than a high end jammy.

The kit is fine, pipes are pipes, an intercooler is an intercooler. There is no space age shit here, a dam impeller is being ran off of exhaust gases.

Lol, amazing how the haters come out in groups, too bitch to have said it before,.....I gotta go be back lata.
