Stock D16y5 in a 93 si.
y8 intake manifold with 450 dsm injectors.
converted to obd1 running chipped p06 with crome pro.
xs turbo manifold, mated to a ihi rhb52w (vj17) turbo off 87-88. converted to external wastegate. Using a 38mm Tial wg. with open dump tube, exits next to balancer.
johnny racecar intercooler, 2 in pie fro turbo to intercooler than 2.25 to the tb. smaller piping for fast spool. Tial bov. black coupler and tbolts all around. Custom 3in downpipe.
to stock exhaust. Planning on putting in electric cutout. Open dp for track for now.
Here is the Dyno graph. It was really hot outside. 104F.
Car on 6psi with boost leak(found later that day). more boost=200whp vtec-e!!!

sweet! Stock exhaust too!

bigger exhaust would probably help out a bit... just a thought!

Thanks. Took turbo apart to reclock it and it was absolutley perfect, especially for 23yrs old. No shaft play either way beside minimal play turbo have.
Been messin around with it, seems best about 2700-3000. Got it set at 2752 now. kicks real hard.
its defying what everyone thinks of the d16y5. With so much more potential.

Here are some pics of my engine, dp, intercooler set up. 3in dp custom fitted to the stock o2 housing of the tbird from a random 3in pipe from the salvage. A nice custom fit.

just over 1000 miles. Most break due to low dp clearance to the ground. Not the case here. Plus i reenforced it. Also got a cast manifold, finishing up the p&p if it breaks.
Manifold really helps on spool up over cast.

Do you retain the VTEC-E with your chipped ECU?

Im thinking if you got a newer turbo with a better design and compressor map instead of some 25 year old snail, your 200 benchmark can attained easily..

Good luck on your build buddy!

How did you get past the primary and secondary o2 issue with the turbo manifold?

Sorry for bringing this back to life....

Did you do anything to the motor or is it completely completely stock? What ECU are you using and how much HP are you pushing?
