Hey guys, so Im finally able to boost my del sol si. Im gonna go with a t3/t4 ebay kit and hoping to run 12-15psi on the stock d16z6 block. Im using the civic dx tranny (its long) Have dsm 450cc injectors, and turbo xs rfl bov. And im getting a phereable.net tune from Vega. Input?

Vega will probably give you a little grief about the kit, but he got mine running nice with a street tune using eCtune on a chipped p28.

I say get rid of the huge wheels on it. (by the looks of your avatar) Smaller wheels :arrow: less rotational mass.

By grief I mean he doesn't like those cheap ebay kits. I have one on my sedan, don't worry he'll tune it. I'd also check to see if Jap or Alpha can tune it for you too. I miss the Tampa area, you've got like 5 or 6 shops that cater to imports.

I think a ebay kit is a good start if you want to boost your car, i have one in my car , and it's been running very well for 7 months on stock engine with no problems, so good luck with your build man ¡¡¡

How many psi btw?

and yeah I know that Im pushin it with the stock block, but ive seen it done and not too worried if i blow it right now. The head studs will help.

about the ebay kits...Ive seen 4 real life, and they seem to be decent. Just some of the parts need to be replaced or reenforced. The turbo's themselves seem decent enough.
