Cheaper to peice it together? SiAdam how much did your turbo, Intercooler, bov, wastegate and piping cost? (I was really going for just the turbo kit itself, nothing else...)

And wow.. full 3" exhaust is a big pipe.. guessing I gotta pick up that soon too.


It all depends on your goals.

Garret turbo was a 57 trim. $520
Precision Cooler $400
HKS Bov was $200
Tial 38mm gate $250
Piping was 2.5" for the cooler I bought from summit.

Of course, thats far from a "kit".

Well ofcourse, but those were just the peices I was interested in. Not to bad of prices. Thanks.

Still unsure about how I'm going to go about this... either try to find a decent used kit or I will buy in peices. Thanks for the advice.

Just got my kit in...

Turbonetics t3/t4 .57 trim .63 a/r
Drag exhaust manifold (not to happy with this... will upgrade soon)
38mm Wastegate
Greddy Bov
RC 550cc injectors
2.5" downpipe
Drag i/c about 6.5" height (another peice I'm not thrilled about)
Tapped B Series oil pan
All piping and necessary oil lines

It's a good kit to start me off.. I'm not sure what hp this kit alone will put me at but after I make some adjustments I will have a decent setup.

We've started building my b16 motor but noticed some small peices missing so I'm now waiting on those pieces. my b18c5 will have to stay in my car for a couple more weeks.

Ok well I got the engine built for the most part... still waiting on the gaskets for the back cover and lower cover on the timing belt... once the honda dealer gets them I will finish up the engine part... Onto the tranny we have no idea how to install an lsd I have found some how to's on installing lsd's on honda tech but still. Our local honda dealer doesn't have the tranny gaskets, so we were thinking of just taking it to a shop and having them deal with it all. I'm not sure if this will be worth it though.

Still need to get Hondata s300, walbro 255 fuel pump, 3bar map sensor, and eventually the tune. I'm sure there will be other things that pop up but for now I'm getting close.

You need to find out for yourself what you need, not rely on someone else.

What year is your car again?

2000, I have been looking around but really haven't found a decent page on the little items in a transmission. Other sites have posts that just go deep into the gearing and such. I haven't had any experience with transmissions so I'm going into this blind, I will go read up in the owner's manual on the basic parts of the tranny.

Ok, just checking.

I rebuilt my 99 b16a2 tranny. First I put a lsd into it, then a yr later my counter shaft ripped apart.

I can safely say, there are no gaskets, the tranny cases use Hondabond, and the only "gaskets" aren't really gaskets, they are axles seals.

I just reused mine...but that depends on each application.

Check here.

Scroll down to MT Tranny stuff under system component.

Well the engine is pretty much built just sitting there rapped up now... I finally got the info on my obx lsd after 5 weeks that it has been on back order for 6 months and this company are no longer selling them.

So now I will either buy a tranny with an lsd installed (theres a b16 tranny with a quaife lsd already installed for 800) if I bought that I would try to sell my stock tranny right now for a bit of cash. Or I will just buy an obx lsd and install in my tranny.

Hehe yea I need to figure this out.

My brother might have found someone to buy his motor (that motor is the one inside of my car now) and the guy wants it saturday so my motor (the b16 built) is hopefully going to drop down inside of my Si. Finally!

I can run without an lsd for awhile but I would really like to just have gotten it all built then drop it all in there at once. Eh we will see what happens. Can't wait though!!!

Piecing together might be cheaper. Make sure to upgrade your clutch.

I've read quite a few posts on alot of different sites about where to place your dump tubes or if people even have them and it's making me wonder what I'm going to do with mine.

I hear poeple that run without one or with a very short one have problems with the exhaust fumes staying in the engine bay and sometimes going into the turbo robbing hp. They say it's very very loud and some people like it that way.

I hear people say it's good to run it down by your oil pan facing towards the rear of the car. Reduces the sound and exhaust fumes in the engine bay.

I haven't heard much people running it into the downpipe but I assumed that's what everyone does.

Anyways I was curious of what you folks here at ClubSi did? and how you liked it?

Run it down and underneath your oil pan facing the back of the car.

Okay this is what is holding me back from finishing this build.

I have seen a few posts on how to install them so I'm not going there.

I'm just curious of how long and what's the difficultly level on installing one of these. Is it possible for an average joe to come along, grab some tools and slap one of these in?

I followed a how-to on H-T that was great.

IF you read the info, you can decide if you have the tools/know how to tackle it.

Well my brother and his friend and I going to try to get this thing all built on the 18th... I still don't have my lsd in but I'm thinking we could do it ourselves. Will save me cash and hopefully I will learn something lol.

Unfortunetly we gotta pull my B18 that's in it now and drop that B16 back in then hook it all up and then get the turbo down inside.

Honda-Tech had a great "How to install turbo" thread so I have been studing it and everything doesn't look to bad, looks like the wiring on the ecu and junk will be a pain. But who knows.

I'm getting quite excited about this, and can't wait to finally get this thing running after all this time.

Haha my boost gauge that I got with my kit doesn't sit on 0, it's not off to bad. From what I hear it will reset itself when I hook it up. We'll see. ;\)



And now a random pic of my turbo + drag mani + wastegate. This is how I recieved it, I didn't put it together. I was pretty lazy when I wrapped it.

Good way to get started. Don't sweat the gauge, it's just for reference, they are usually off a hair anyway.

I would definitely lengthen that downpipe dump.

Good luck.
