    Actually, a used hy35 from a slightly newer cummins (ebay) would probably be a better choice, T3 single scroll instead of twinscroll, most people don't want to build a twinscroll manifold. The hy35 should spool decently on the 2.0L a20 due to it's something like .63ar housing, and the compressor is big enough to make more horsepower than any a20 transmission can reliably take.

    I'm always amazed at how conservative people are on here, look at the rest of the honda world, you'll see why I mean. For example, look at what people do with the crappy little D16 motors. I remember a thread on honda-tech where a guy bent all 4 stock rods with over 500whp, the motor still ran like that, just lower compression. That's a good tune, btw, bent rods before broken pistons.

    Speaking of the pistons, I don't think a20 pistons are inferior to the other honda pistons, and with all the other hondas, people at least double their hp on stock motors. I'd say similar power numbers to an integra ls motor are doable on a stock a20 shortblock, you just have to tune conservatively, like any other stock block turbo build.

    I've been stuck out on a navy op since the 23rd, XD 12-18 hour days of work, and no weekends. I REALLY want some saki right about now.

    Good thing is I get off in 8 more days.

    so its not the worst.
