The NX and Water Inj aren't mine, called it for some friends. I would think 10 times before combining turbo and nitrous on a NA engine without forged internals.

Guys!

Long time

So after a patient month and an unimaginably stressful week, the car has been turbo'd!

I took us around 2 weeks to get it all installed and another week to tune it properly. For now, the car goes upto 7 psi at around 2.5-3k rpm and holds upto around 6 pounds by red line. For the time being, the wastegate actuator is set directly from the turbo's outlet. The boost controller will be added later.

Ill be starting to post the pictures soon now that I've got my hands free. I cannot elaborate on the accomplishment of this job. Though downfall hit more than a couple times, this was one of the best experiences and by far the most interesting project ever undertaken.

For those who are looking in turbo'ing their civics, words cannot describe the beauty of turbo'ing a Honda. Its all an experience.

Lovely... Waiting for the pictures. My Civic is also in the process of getting a turbo I hope I can experience the beauty you are talking about.

What suspension/brakes are you running on your car ?? Please put details pictures with specs of the Turbo used.

Hey CVC, that's a nice build. What's the progress on this...
Did you consider swapping ECU to ESDM ECU and use Hondata for tuning? IMO, if it works, nothing beats that!
