    You need to look into how you're going to tune it, recently there's everything for a bolt on OBD1 conversion but it's a bit of money, and are you going to make your own manifold?

    8-9 psi you can forget about injectors and run stock injectors. look around for what ecus ppl are using for our obd-1 and find out who makes adapter plates for a ond1 dizzy and then find out what obd1 dizzy to use... then play with a n/a tune and get used to tuning yourself or be prepared to spend mjor money at a dyno tune. then once you understand how to tune VERY well you can put your turbo on and start tuning for that. dont just jump into it. do it right and search around.... thats why i said find out ____ alot; i wont forcefeed you i want you to learn... lol i got burned for not searching and hell i still do occasionally

    Damn 88lxi shortram that means i gotta flame you too hahah jk man

    yeah it aint going to be cheap if you want some real ponys first set your hp range(will determine how much your gonna spend) 2 the set up's price and 3. the Labor. But most importantly read!!! see what will be good and not good, everything will have to be custom to make it work. so be prepared to spend a lot of money, time and Patience! If not then don't bother with the turbo and stay stock.

    Im going turbo as well but my set up will be a secret haha i just hope this young'n can handle the power. ill probably be the only CA6 with turbo in the West Coast! unless i forgot someone....well have fun with your project.

    cuz hes saying use the stock injectors. lol u cant do that if u want a good set up. its just bound to fail on you with stock 240cc's.


    As far as the OP goes, SEARCH. theres a Forced Induction section a few cm's up from that new thread button u clicked. There also is a FAQ about turboing an accord so read that, look at the current turbo build threads then start asking questions. nobody here is just gonna baby you. if u wanna know u gotta look it up. GL with it tho!!

    It's been done on stock injectors. I ran stockers for at least a year.

    Re: A20A3 Turbo Build

    Well i guess im just dive into it and start making my manifold and buy all the shit to turbo it and worry about all the tuning and dizzy stuff later on if can't figure it out guess its to going to a shop to get tuned by some1 who knows more about the tuning.

    Re: A20A3 Turbo Build

    you can run stock injectos lol. for 7psi max if that. i wouldnt recommend anything higher.

    Why would you convert the p06 to vtec LOL. we dont have it. P06 with a basemap and tune from there. I would suggest 450cc blue tops there cheap as hell.

    search is key if you want detailed info.

    For engine controls, I'd go Megasquirt. You can run distributor-less ignition with a crank trigger that way. I plan on using MS to tune my turbo setup. You can get the parts for either swap from Cygnus x-1 on the board.
