Actually just gathered som stuff in my garage :lol:
Would be nice with a complete list/w images on what you actually need for a complete turbo kit to make it work on the D16a1.

You should add fuel injectors to your list.

- Turbo + Exchaust manifold
- OBD1 converted ECU with turboedit or something similar
- Turboboost gauge, wideband lamda, knock sensor perhaps
- Larger injectors
- Massive fuel pump Wallbro or Bosch 044
- Map sensor
- Oil Cooler and Oil temperature gauge
- what else?!?

Optional:
- Blowoff valve preferrably recirculating system
- Intercooler with piping
- Exchaust temp gauge

There's no MAF sensor for the G1, just the MAP sensor.

I'd honestly consider an oil cooler to be a required part for turbo'ing the D16. The extra heat that the oil passing through the turbo will absorb might cause the oil to brake down faster under longer drives (not 100% sure on how heat saturated a good synthetic 5w30 gets in a N/A engine when compared to a Turbo'd engine, but wouldn't want to risk it with all of the moving parts, especially in the head).

How do you solve oil and watercooling Connections to the turbo? Pictures would be nice.
This would be he most difficult to solve if there isn't a ready solution IMO.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong. I believe most people tap the feed from the oil pressure sensor in the back of the block. Most people thread the oil return line somewhere in the oil pan. Not sure where you could hook up the water cooling.

This is correct. That is exactly how mine is setup and believe me it flows plenty of oil lol. I do no have the water cooling set up on mine but ive read up on it. People tap into the IACV cooling lines and run them through the turbo, I do not remember before or after the IACV in way of water flow though. It would make more sense to me to have it go through the IACV then through the turbo.

Thinking about this... is that where the hot water flows under/around the throttle body so it does not freeze in wintertime? (Aluminium intake + brass "throttle-plate" = moisture, moisture + Cold = ice)

Im thinking for much further ahead but what do you guys think is the most reliable turbo kit to install on your 86?

for your swap its better if you get a turbo kit since you have so low compression you can handle crazy amounts of boost.
