Hey everyone, new to the forums. I picked myself up a 93’ Teg LS for a good price with low miles. I want to keep my A/C & P/S, so I started searching. I have come to the conclusion of wanting the Full-Race Pro Street A/C Stage-1kit. Few questions, though.
1-On a good tune, how much boost is the stock B18 capable of without damage/detonation?
2-Will the T3/T04E turbo be good for daily-driving without alot of lag?
3-I want at least 250whp. I don’t want to set my standards really high, I would like more, but I’m trying to think logically.
4-Would you reccommend an aftermarket igniton to enhance the spark along with colder plugs?
5-If I run Hondata, will it accomodate the A/C? Or, should I do an SAFC or EManage?
These are the questions that have me stumped. I have been reading and searching on the forums, and guys that have used a couple of different setups on the stock B18A say that the T3 Super-60 is a better turbo vs the
T3/T4 due to the amount of lag. Please help me out guys. I want to keep my car a reliable and comfortable daily-driver with alot better power. I’m not going for all-out numbers, just want more spirited driving when I feel like it.
im about to say exactly what xenocron just told you so you don’t even have to read my post.
1- you could have well over 250whp with a good tune assuming your motor is in good shape.
2- there shouldn’t be much lag, but the greddy kit uses a smaller turbo that would still get you 250hp and for much cheaper.
3- set your hp goals before picking your turbo.
4- ignition boxes like msd are baddddddddd, colder plugs are goodddddd.
5- and since you’re obd1 you can use aem ems if you want too. piggybacks like safc and e-manage are badddddd.
Thanks for the replies, guys. The entire purpose of asking the questions were because I haven’t ever really tuned or played with non-Vtec motors. Thats why I was skeptical. I want something that I can have fun in without the cost of an entire swap. Thanks for the input. I won’t ask stupid questions again.
When u are considering turbo size, u also need to consider the difference in power.
i have ridden in many different turbo LS’s, ive built about 5 kits.
For a long time i had a 42/48 at 10 psi 5 psi at 2800, 10 psi at 3400. It was fast but about as fast as the super 60 on 7 (a kit i built). Then i put a huge turbo on my friends car, Turbonectics T3/t4e 60/63 with stage 5 wheel. full spool at about 4000 or so, but it was about 15 psi on the super 60.
Just think how u will sacrifice with less lag and less power.
