    Re: Turbo'ed A20A3- A few questions.

    hey i plan on turbo ing my a20a1 accord hatch (manuel)
    im converting it to pgm-fi from a 87 prelude (auto trans)
    i am going to run 8-10 psi on a t3/ t4 turbo
    i am going to use a 4-2-1 headers (custom attachment to the manifold) if wanted i can show a pre drawn pic of it

    450cc jdm injectors, safc apexi controller, 255 walbro fuel pump.

    the kit im getting comes with gauges, intercooler, piping, fuel press reg, wastegate, bov, voltage regulator, fan, oil cooler, oil catch tank, and turbo.

    my question is : am i missing any thing for my build???

    and what kind of wiring problems am i going to run into converting to pgm-fi from that car??

    Re: Turbo'ed A20A3- A few questions.

    If you can find a Volvo T3/T4 turbo at the junkyard, its cheap.
    my set up only costed me a whoole 400$ pluss 200$ for a spray kit.
    i get 7psi boost with very little lag.
    currently run;
    -Volvo turbo injectors
    -Volvo T3/T4 Turbo
    -Volvo Intercooler
    -Sandwich -3 AN lines
    -Prelude ECU
    all junk yard parts, and still my daily driver. the only problem i had was the air filter system sucks.
    i rn it straight down from the header into the right front side of the shifter(yesinside my car) and theres the turbo. ill post some pics soon but you dont need any of these big brands to turbo it, just research and know what your doing. oh btw, 12.3 secs on the track all stock

    Re: Turbo'ed A20A3- A few questions.

    Gonna have to agree on the pics "and" slips. I make more than enough to make 12 sec passes all day long, but putting it to the ground is a problem. I'd like to hear about your suspension setup and trap times/speed cause thats some good ass times.

    Not hatin, this is the internet after all and anyone can say whatever they want behind a keyboard.

    prelude ecu does not make your battt die. Look for a problem elsewhere.
