I have a Drag III turbo kit, turbonetics t3/4 (57 trim, 63 exhaust), tial wastegate, thermal 3" exhaust and 3" cat, act clutch, 9:1 je pistons, eagle rods and new valves. My question is what's the safe max boost I can with stock fuel and ignition setup. I only have the inline pump that came with Drag III and I also have the 7 range NGK plugs, but that's it.

Thanks!

I'd be leary about anything over about 10. You can figure out your fuel pressure, and plug in the injector size (220cc) to a formula and figure out how much they'll support.

So u think I'm pushing it if I'm running 10 lbs? on my Air/Fuel gauge I'm still in the "Rich" zone. Don't you think 10 lbs should be alright for my compression ration of 9:1?

Tunned properly....easy @15psi and normally say 10-12psi ! No problem on a built bottom end ! At 15psi you will need more fuel so going with say 310's or even 440 injectors may be what your looking at. Tune, Tune and your at 15psi no problem.

Cool thanks guys. I tried it at 10psi (I used to run 5psi for several months) and all I could say was WOW! Now I tuned it down to 8psi. Just smoked a WRX on the way home..hehe

If I get bigger injectors, say 370cc, do I need to get some kind of fuel management or will my stock ecu handle that? Also, should I get a better intank pump and how about the FMU?

You need a electric inline fuel pump such as the one MSD makes ! That is a must ! 370's may be a tad to big but you may be able to lean them out. A proper dyno tune will tell you what your air/fuel needs are.

Your ecu will surprise you...But then again this is going to be an area you will eventually want to change.

You could pump up the PSI to around 12 to 15 on stock internals, I would suggest that you go with a bigger fuel pump, or your motor won't last long I can tell you that for sure!

one thing for sure 12-15psi on stock internals and you can kiss your motor bye bye ! I don't care if you use that STUPID VAFC-HACK <--COUGH ! Bigger injectors, bigger inline fuel pump ! 12-15psi on stock anything your asking for BLOWN something !

Not to start a flame war here... but I NEVER said it was safe did I? I don't think so... now if we look at the scenario here, I said "You could pump the up the PSI 12-15 on stock internals...", then I also added "I would suggest that you get a bigger fuel pump..." (fuel delivery systems) becaus if you don't add fuel to satisfy air being forced, could cause detonation. I know this for a fact!

Me and my friend Paul, setup a Honda Preldue SI 1989 (We tuned for the good portion of the weekend with his dad) with a custom turbo with intercooler and stock internals, and it ran at 14 psi and he got 13.11 in the 1/4 at the Sacramento Raceway in California.

Now this car is dead, because [email protected] like we are did'nt relocate the powersteering line (that runs accross the exhaust maniforld, i suggested we should dump it to lose weight, but Paul wanted it), caused to much heat from the turbo manifold, and the line... well, lets say we had a little BBQ. So that's the end of the story. But that prelude ran extremly well on pump gas and it was a daily driver for a good 8 months... between the time we slapped ont he turbo and when it went up in flames... Oh yeah, I forgot to mention this motor had good compression test before the installation of the turbo and it had 134,xxx on the odometer.

Now Rev and Boost, I did'nt say I know everything, I don't, but I have experience, and I'm damn sure I can learn from Boost and everyone else here on this board. But why would I lie, and why would I give a fellow TI member bull about turbo's and stuff which ain't even cool. I was a member of hondaprelude.com and I've always gave my best advice and never tried to screw anyone over. If I did'nt feel confident on the info I'm giving out, I wouldn't give it out, and if I did'nt know jack about it, I would ask questions, that's how we learn right?

Like I said int he begining, I'm not trying to start a flame war, just backing up what I was saying.


Questions and comments (good and bad are welcomed),

Raymond

First of all thanks for the info guys.
So say, I add new 370cc injectors, to replace my stock 240cc's. What kind of intank pump should I get, because I really want to get rid of my little inline pump? What else am I gonna need to change or buy? Do I remove the FMU or change the disk in it? Is it necessary to get the Apexi AFC or something like that?


Thanks!

Well not sure on the IN-tank but try HKS.... HKS In-Tank Fuel Pump 165psi / 90 gph. But YIKES !!! $$$$ !

No your FMU should remain the same...You may need to change disks...every setup is different a good dyno will tell you if you need fuel. The AFC or V-AFC can control fuel maps + or -50. It will do ya...A stand-alone EMS such as AEM or Hondata is the ultimate setup.

Then you would loose the FMU and need a fuel pressure regulator.

Blaxican707 your ok in my book man...But the H22 motor is a tad bit different than our motors bro. A lil bit bigger down there in her bottom so she can handle a tad more boost. But your point was well taken.

Nice on the come back explaination...We are ALL here to LEARN ! What it's all about here as opposed to other NOT going say SO-called Forums *COUGH* Honda.T-WRECK.com !

Peace !
