Default Boostedjd's Prospective GS-R turbocharger build thread

So finally decided to pull the trigger and go turbo in my teg. Been driving it for 2 years na on a b20b4 and its too slow. Ordered a b18c from hmotorsonline.


Was not disappointed. Got the whole swap, axles, harness, ecu. All sensors in tact and nothing broken. Engine looked good and no rust, all bolts came right out without a fight.

Have a spare room at my house and since im a single cat dad and live alone and live in ohio and its freezing decided to get a few buddys and help put my engine in my spare room cuz why not, its warm.



Teach them young


More disassembly to come. Thinking im gonna send it to benson to get sleeved and built since prl stopped building engines.

Ya engine was super clean, highly recommended hmo, little pricey but worth in in my opinion. Engine is getting sleeved and built, planning on going to dan benson, he had a special for like cleaning, sleeving, boring, balancing, rods and pistons for like 3k. Seems like a decent deal and good rep as far as i know.
As far as turbo kit i plan on going w go-autoworks top mount kit. http://www.go-autoworks-store.com/gotm62prokit.html . Plan is 400-500 hp so i can still street it, dont need anything insane and dont want it to be too hard to drive.

final disassembly, everything still looks good.

Donít really see the point of an HMO engine if itís getting rebuilt anyway could pull a block and head from a junkyard and sleeve and build it. But to each their own.

Also why a top mount kit for only 500hp. Would get better response with a mini ram at that power level.

I also agree, should of just used a blown engine! but if the head has a hole in the valve you can return that engine im sure under warranty. HMO guarantees there engines to run and that would not run with that hole in the valve..

No hole in the valve, guess the pic just makes it look like that. Everythings good on the engine. And went w hmo cuz ive been screwed twice buying used engines. I just like the peace of mind of have gaurenteed everything, still using the head, sensors, harness. Also rather pay and get everything i need than spend forever searching craigs and driving around to get a bunch if random parts in unknown condition. And no particular real reason for top mount, kinda just had ny mind set on it, like the way it looks and I've never heard anything bad about them. Plus might get bored at 500 and go up, rhen no need to buy half a turbo setup again if i switch.

smart call on the engine. I thought benson was done sleeving blocks or honda blocks years ago. That mite have been erl sleeving. Good call with goin with goautoworks. I would consider changing to a mini ram or even a ramhorn. Those will both go a long way. Depending on how efficient the rest of the setup is, you could do 600whp on an mini ram. And have way better response compared to the topmount.

also what parts of ohio. Im up in toledo.

Right, I get not wanting to search around and piece together parts. To me that is some of the fun of the build process, but again to each his own.

Back on the top mount, I get it, but this is a street car, no? Response is important, because you will get left behind by cars with half the HP while waiting for yours to spool. Then when the power finally comes on like flipping a switch, it will be more than your street tires can handle and you'll blow them off, while going essentially nowhere.

You're obviously putting a lot into this build, should set it up for a good linear, responsive power band.

this is on dan bensons website. Seems like a pretty good deal to me.

http://www.go-autoworks-store.com/goprokit.html
something like this better then? Think its the same kit basically just ramhorn instead. Unless anyones got better ideas. Cant justify 8k on full race or sheepy built. Idk guess i havent looked into it too much just didnt realize top mounts had that much lag.

Damn 3350 sounds like to good of a deal to pass up. I think golden eagle used to have some kinda honda tech deal for blocks sleeved and shipped for 1160. So this seems like a good deal.

yea the ramhorn kit would be a better choice. I honestly wouldnt run a topmount setup, unless i was stritcly drag racing. Where im always in the upper rpm range. For your 500whp goal, what turbo were you thinkin of goin with. He definitely has more turbos to offer than whats on that kit list. If you say, you may want more power later, dont buy a turbo for power youre gona want later. Select one that you can maximize for your 500 goal. Then upgrade later.

i ****** loved the tga 5857 turbo. Hit 496whp on my b16 setup

yea i think akron like 2.5 hours away.

Looks like a fun build. I'm happy to see people still interested building this chassis.

Thanks for the input! Ive never heard anything bad about ferrera. What about camshafts? Stay stock vs getting like skunk2 turbo cams? Or other recommendations?

another thing im a little confused about the fuel system. Mines a returnless system so id like to keep it that way for ease and clean look. And my goal is 500hp, heard people say the stock fuel lines can make up to 5-600 other people say not. And also as far as fuel pressure regulators go will the "stock style" ontop of the fuel rail be fine as opposed to "stand alone" adjustable like mounted to the firewall i guess like aem's adjustable fpr? Any input and pics qould be helpful! Thanks.

Why would you ever opt to use a returnless system? Having one extra fuel line running out of the bay does not make it any less "clean" and you want to be able to maintain a constant pressure at the fuel rail for ease of tuning when running a turbo.
