Going to turbo the LS by the end of the summer '06.

I'm looking to do mid to low 13s in the 1/4mi, nothing special, and I want about 200 LBS of TQ to the wheels. The teg is an LS and I do not want VTEC, so my redline will stay stock.

Check over my idea for a setup if you would, all comments are welcome and appriciated.


*T25/28 Hybrid Turbo w/intcooler
*Internal wastegate @ 7psi
*2.5" through DP/Cat/Exhaust
*Vortec Inline HP FuelPump
*OBD-I and NepTune W/Boost
*Upgrade clutch somehow...
*Motor mount inserts
*LSD mated to LS Tranny

Other stuff to get good times- Short shifter, 16" Slipstreams w/good tires

Reason for T28 choice--
**Spool @ 2K, Peak Spool and TQ @ 6K RPM
**Need to keep A/C & P/S

I searched for T28 and found one thread that said too much heat will be given at redline, but that was for a high revving GSR. My car will still redline at 6.XRPM so I don't think that will be a problem.

Again I'm not looking to upgrade in the future or push more that 7psi on the turbo. This will be the final setup for a few years. Time goal is mid-low 13s, good Auto-X car.

Thanks all, boost with you soon.

Oh yeah...
Greddy BOV, 3.0" IC pipes, and the manifold will be built by a local shop Apex Motorsports Tempe, also installing turbo setup.

The intercooler I have to read up on to see what size. I don't want to go overkill but I need one big enough.

*EDIT--2.5" pipes intercooler, not 3"

Wow 3.0" ic pipes? That's way too big. Get 2.5 in if you plan on running high boost later on, or 2.25 if you're staying with low boost.

Why is 3 inch to big? There is less pressure drop with 3 inch compared to 2.5 or 2.25. The air also only slows down a little bit. It slows down so little that you wont even feel the difference.

You're wrong about that. There is MORE of a pressure drop with bigger piping. Also, the bigger the intercooler, the MORE of a pressure drop. So it's not necessarily good to go with a big intercooler unless you're running a lot of boost.

Search, Search, not just this site but other honda and forced induction forums. Honda-tech has an 85 page thread going about LS turbo set-ups

This is true.

Honda-Tech has many turbo guys.

You have to be careful with what you take off of Honda-Tech, but they have an increible amount of users with turbo experience.

Almost every post in this FI section has been addressed @ honda-tech.

What manifold and downpipe are you planning to run? Are you going with custom or full race or what not?

Although, I don't want to say anything negative about your power goal. I can't really see you reaching that number if you plan to run low boost with a t25, which is a really small turbo to begin with. I've seen a few "mildly" built B18B motors with turbos such as T04e and T28's and they're barely hitting the 200lb mark.

Oh yeah also don't forget about fuel injectors, plan on upgrading to bigger ones.

Actually you are incorrect.... you can't call it a pressure drop or loss. You need to call it a lag in building pressure due to the increased volume in the IC and piping compared to a smaller volume IE: 2.25".

I just wanted to clarify that for everyone.

Yes, but that is what people are referring to when they call it a pressure drop. Comparing throttle response and lag, etc, to the size of the piping.

OK so 200lbs is a little high - With that turbo, tuning, and bigger injectors my realistic goal is about 170lbs.

I think the turbo will be good for a LS redline of 6.8K. It shouldn't die out, but does anybody have any experience with this turbo?
