If you want to make real power you'll need a real turbo
SC isn't going to cut it.

I was real close to going with a diy turbo.
Had the turbo and manifold sitting in the garage.
But it's a pain getting it to pass smog so I decided on a SC.

Sucks about the burnt piston, I hear that the hyper re-route works so good that detonation is impossible up to 40 ps of boostz

The build plan looks good for a very nice street car and ill be waiting to see it come together.

i did my own variant of a spacerless re-route, paired with a 160* thermostat. this time i will be going with a 185* thermostat and putting the stock heater core hoses back on. in the wintertime i can't get any heat.

why are people trying to tell you to "Sc it" when you were already turbo to begin with?

you know what? on second thought, here's an even better alternative. just trade your car for a civic si and put some "NOS" on it and be done. you can brag about having vtec then.
