All assuptions are based on stock motor, with midsize T3/T4 turbo, and minimal fuel and timing upgrades. if you need something more specific let me know and ill help you out.

    Honda/Acura:
    d15- 7psi
    d16- 8psi
    b16- 8 1/2psi
    d17a2- 7-8psi
    B18b- 10psi
    b18c-8 1/2psi
    k20- 8psi
    k24- 6-8 psi
    f23- 8psi

    hey d, your quotes for the mitsu 4g63 are drastically off.

    it can handle up to 400 whp, which is roughly 45 lbs./min or more. this translates into at least 24 psi if not more.

    my friend ran 22psi all day everyday with a small 16G for a good amount of miles with upgraded fuel mods and a stock bottom end...granted smaller than a t3/t4 but you get the idea.

    It's more about the fuel/tuning on a stock motor than anything else. There's a k20 running 19psi on pump gas with a stock motor. I'm not saying everyone should do this or it will last forever, but there are just too many variables that go into a setup even with a stock motor that will determine how much boost you can run safely.

    I think he is trying to just set a baseline for stock engines, unmodded, which are what 90% of people that ask the questions have....no fuel upgrades.

    If you're running a Honda engine on boost with no fuel upgrades, you're retarded and deserve to grenade your motor.

    ok let me clarify

    hey d, your quotes for the mitsu 4g63 are drastically off.

    it can handle up to 400 whp, which is roughly 45 lbs./min or more. this translates into at least 24 psi if not more.
    thats a low estimate for a t3/t4 which is what i am figuring all these in. and again i know you can make much more power, but as a baseline with minimal fuel and timimg upgrades this is a path to follow. you will need some sort of fuel controller on all of these, but to safely run boost with a T3/T4, on the street, this is a guideline. 24lbs on a T3/T4 would be actually more in the 450+ range which would need heavy modification to the car to allow. not really applicable on a stock setup.

    and like i said i know you can tune a honda motor to over 600hp on a stock motor, but that doesnt mean its efficiant or safe. These again are Guidelines for a safe street build on a stock motor with minimal fuel and timing upgrades.

    please
    unfortunately im not sure on that motor, the computer does not read boost well and in turn causes many many problems in tuning. I have not come a cross as successfully turbo setup for a celica that didnt require a full motor build and a stand alone. The motor itself, just the block and head, i assume could handle 6-8psi, but that would be going on teh assumption that you could get the stock computer to accept the boost readings. We have found a way to do this on the is300, but not yet on the celica.

    I have an 97 integra ls and i just bought a turbo kit from a buddy that is moving. I really don't know much about force induction. i need some help so i could get my car running again. I install the turbo and the intercooler, i got larger injectors (440cc) and new fuel pump. it doesn't turn over. do you have any suggestions that could help me??

    im currently running a low boost lsvtec on ~7psi (spring set tial wastegate no boost controller) with a t3/t4 57trim, tuned with apexi powerfc. the block and head are stock, but rebuilt with ARP hardware including rod bolts, fresh bearings and rings, and cometic head gasket. 650cc injectors and B&M fpr are the only fuel upgrades. i planned to up the boost in the spring (after tax returns) to ~10psi but am curious if the motor would reliably handle more, say ~12+ psi? yes, i plan to upgrade the fuel pump before i retune. what kind of power would i see with 10psi? 12psi?(currently making 280whp fyi)

    thanks for your input

    on that build you could probably see close to 300 with a good tune safely.
