I just bought a motor last week to swap into the car.
I believe it is a 94,GSR motor.
I still am running the b18a1. I know I will need to convert to OBD1 that’s not really the issue.
The issue is figuring out what components I will need for the turbo. I believe I know what turbo, manifold, and (possibly) intercooler I will be getting. Piping I still have no idea. I will be getting Hondata S300 v3 w/a COP conversion kit.
The two things I am stuck on right now is figuring out a fuel pump to deliver over 600hp (motor is rated up to 1k). A 255 won’t be enough, I can’t find anything bigger that fits on our cars. Which leads me to my next concern, should I worry about E85 right now or is that something I can deal with later?
The second thing is my battery. I can’t relocate to my trunk, it is filled with my subwoofer and I have zero intention on getting rid of it. Any way to keep the battery in the bay? Or safely mount a battery maybe behind the passenger seat with a vent tube to the outside? I have no AC/PS/Washer reservoir already, does thay help the situation any?
I’m sure there’s more stuff I am forgetting but this is all new to me. I hope to try and gather the rest of the parts within the next 4 months or so.
Piping will have to be custom. That will give you the most efficient result anyway, though.
I don’t know a ton about fuel pumps so my advice is pretty limited there… but in today’s world 600hp really isn’t much power… if we only have limited in-tank options, then you’d be looking at adding something in-line as well to make up the additional feed you’re seeking.
Battery… some people go with a smaller performance battery and tuck it under the front frame rails, wheel well/bumper cover area.
I don’t really care for that simply because of how vulnerable that makes the battery in a front end accident.
I guess the floor works, with adequate venting and mounting… but i equally dont like that idea.
A 255 should be good up to 550 so long as you pair with 1000cc injectors. I wouldn’t consider it maxed out there either.
For the battery, there are a lot of mounts for an odyssey PC680 but if you have a large stereo I’d consider staying on a full size battery.
With 500+whp and a large subwoofer, what are the goals for the car?
You are going to want to think about e85 now if you plan to run it now or in the future. You will need to size your injectors and fuel pump for e85 if you plan to run it. You are going to need 1400cc injectors for 600+ hp on e85 and as far as a fuel pump goes look into a 450 with relay and wiring. As far as your battery if you get a agm i do not believe you need venting for it to be in the cabin.
I plan on making my car e85 compatible but i don’t necessarily want to run it all the time.
I’ll actually probably run the fuel pump/lines here soon. Why do I need a relay if I am dropping a walbro 450 in the tank?
I had some other questions yesterday but I honestly forget them. I’ll be back and I’ll take pictures when i start putting it together, not sure exactly when that will be. I was gonna swap it prior to turboing and run that for a bit, but I think I will wait until I have all the parts. Haven’t decided yet. Also confused about just the gsr swap in general.
