Default Suggestions needed: B18c1- What does it take to go from 330whp to 450whp?

So in my 97 integra GSR im currently running 330whp on 12psi and im trying to make about 450whp currently the only engine work done is Wiseco pistons and Eagle rods. Before i go blowing anything up i want to know what should be upgraded first, the plan was going to be new retainers and springs with new cams and cam gears new Valves?

make sure you have enough injector, your turbo can handle increased boost pressure for 450whp, good fuel and spark. Then turn up the boost..

since we're don't know what you have to start with, we can't say anything further.

Your thread Title was adjusted to reflect a better way to ask your question.

That.. Right there.. That's about the best that can be obtained without knowing your setup. Post that and watch the magic happen!

I would not take the stock sleeves much past 400whp for long.

If you're on E85 then your fuel system may start to become a limiting factor as well.

What turbo? May either need a new one, or just a few cranks on the MBC..

Commas are powerful symbols Txdragon. The Shodan IS amazing, but he did not suggest that the OP's turbo could produce 450 hp.

Maybe or maybe not. Lol! I'm not harshing on mac in a bad way here. It's been a long day and he can be vague and transparent all at the same time. On the surface, it seemed to me as if he were suggesting the turbo could, as it was the focus of my statement. As I re-read the comment, he may be stating he said the same thing as I. **shrug** I did not see the suggestion he made anyways, as I posted that response. I post and browse 99.9% from my phone. I meant zero disrespect or discredit in what I said.

As you say, the commas are powerful. What I **initially** understood here is that he is pointing out OP's turbo can support 450. I really have to study the statement to rationalize he is suggesting to MAKE SURE his turbo can do so and not suggesting that it can. I like to think my comprehension skills are pretty sharp and this statement seems to have been a curveball for me Lol! My bad!

replace the ebay manifold and FMIC. That will make a difference for sure.
