Realy, if i’s tuned well. It shouldn’t be any worse gas mileage then before… and you’ll prolly actucally prolly have better gasmileage witht eh higher boost setup since hondata is way better to fine tune things unlike the AFC hack
Right, my mistake. It will be weisco fordged pistons (84.5mm bore w/ 10.2:1 compression ratio). It will also have crower econo rods and darton sleeves. Hondata will tune the tiny T25 turbo. If I do this, I will be running the HKS exaust manifold, a 30x4x2.25" intercooler with 2" piping and a HKS BOV. It will have a 2.5" downpipe, with a 2 1/4" exaust with a ES tuning muffler and a factory tip(s). My goal is to have the motor as reliable as the stock B18A1, but with the turbo and some more power along with excellant gas milage. The cars main purpose is a daily driver.
ALso you will definetly be running that little T25 out of breath with a 2.0 @ 10.2:1 SCR Those (Im assuming 2G dsm) were run on a similar bore but with 8.5:1 SCR and they ran out of breath on stock cars!!! This is at 14psi ofcourse.
Seriously… I would buy an older civic and then boost the shit out of the integra to have fun with.
Turbo and reliable daily driver dont really go together well. And if you are the type of person who can really make that combo work well, you have no need to be posting here. You are too busy being chief mechanic on the nascar circuit.
BTW, I get 30-32 highway miles on my stock turbo b18a, 13 psi. When everything is running tip top.
Problem is, the sports car of choice is at my high school is a Mustang, second is Comaro (sp), and third is a freaken civic. I am tired of staying a bus leingth behind at the drag strip (not the civics). I seriously need to do something. I don’t want to waste cash on a header, and Intake if I am going to turbo later. Ya know what I’m saying? The V8’s are killing me. I need a low 14 high 13 second car.
Not counting 30 a week for insurence, and 10 a week for gas. so 10 a week 5000 bucks, so 500 weeks and I sould have it. Thats only like 9 years. Thats not so bad. No, j/k. I’m about to start at best buy. welcome to the tripple diget paychecks :dance: .
Hmmm, not a bad idea. I might just go B16A w/ bolt ons, but ya know, why spend $3000 for a B16A w/ bolt ons and get a low 15,high 14, when I can spend $5000, have a rebuilt motor w/ nice turbo set-up, and turn consistant 13’s.
3000 for b16 swap and bolt ons? howy it’s no where near that expensive. I’ve bought and sold numerous b16 swaps with tranny for about 1500-1800CDN, that’s like 1000-1300 or so in US funds. I cannot see bolt ons costing another 1700US
