Snow's Turbo SE

Postby silentsnow31802 » September 17th, 2012, 2:34 am

Figured I would kick off the SE registry with my turbo teg. I bought it from a guy down in southern Cali.

I was told the car had a HKS turbo kit but it turns out it does not. It is a Greddy manifold from a SOHC that has been port matched to the ZC. Pieces of the intercooler piping and the boost controller are from the HKS kit but that is it. It runs a Garret t25 turbo at 6psi. OBD1 converted with a OBD0 ZC enigne, OBD1 ZC intake manifold, 550cc RC injectors, Bisimoto cams and gears, Tein suspension, and a few other odds and ends. Car is tuned on Chrome and to my surprise does not need an O2 sensor to run properly. Car put down 160HP to the wheels but I do not remember the torque. I think it was 150ish?

Here are the most recent pictures I have of it...

I have big plans for it down the road. Next on the list is a manual subframe for it. Still need to order those sphericals from Chedda though! I will keep this thread updated as I do upgrades. My eventual goal is at least 300HP to the wheels, but I want to get other things worked out before building the engine that much.

The wheels I just clean regularly. The paint is also not as nice as it may seem. It has a few patches here and there where I assume there is rust underneath. I know with some elbow grease and a bit of time it can be made a lot better but I dont have much patience for that. Where do you live at? I wouldnt mind a get together.

Hell yes ill make new mounts. You know... mounts not shelves lol. I have stupid big plans for the car so everything will be done legit and clean. Man my wallet is going to hate me over the next year or so.

Also made more progress today. Removed the AC wiring harness and condenser from under the dash. Re routed a few wires and vacuum hoses. Trying to work on cleaning up the engine bay while the engine is still in there.

Got a few parts

Also working on a full LED conversion kit for the blinkers and such lights. Installed some JDM fogs and the gumball side markers since the last pictures too. Also lowered the front down a hair so it sits more level.

They are JE 75.50 pistons for a d16a6 so the engine will only be bored to fit the oversized pistons, nothing that will really make the displacement larger, just looking to create a nice smooth surface for the new parts to glide aginst. I will need to mill the head a bit to get the desired compression ratio. They came with rings and wrist pins to install to the eagle rods.

I also have a set of ARP studs here, had to order the one longer stud though so thats on the way.

Next up is the supertech head kit then the performer x intake mani. I also need to tear down the engine to see what size the main/rod bearings need to be before I order them.

Swapping the manual subframe and steering rack in over the past few days. Its a very dirty job lol. Found that my torsion bars were hammered in which mushroomed the ends making them almost impossible to get out. I had to take a dremel and cut off a bunch of material to get them out. Also found they had no retaining rings or c clips at all so they were just sitting in the tubes free... sweet right?

Right now im stuck with the sway bar bushings. The brackets are different between the two subframes and the integra has a larger sway bar. I ended up ordering civic bushings and im going to try and get the integra bar to fit inside of them.

The two racks as they sit right now.
Image

The two sway bar mounts. Both have the integra bushing in them. left is integra stock and right is civic stock.
Image

New subframe has all new bushings, new control arms with ball joints, and a new steering rack. Of course a new coat of paint over the entire thing to give it a clean look for install.
Image

Had to drop most the exhaust. Its all welded so I can not remove it with the rear axle installed. Im going to fix the leaking oil pan while im down there.
Image

Just for a reference this is what the steering rack looked like a couple days ago. Apparently new parts can rust!

I had the same problem with the sway bar brackets. Shittt... i used the civic ones? but had a hard time bolting them down... its been awhile since i did it.. Almost a year ago... Anyways, What brand ball Joints is that?? i ordered Beck/Arnley and my driver one is already rusty just from the rain.. Btw dont sell your car please. I like the fact that your sticking with the d16a1 build instead of a b-series. I mean v-tec great but so is repping the d16a1 motor. I will be following your thread and im going to post my build thread soon too.

Im pretty sure theyre the beck/arnley ones. Stupid they rusted like that. Im glad they werent on the car already. Ill keep the car. I have too much money and time into it to get rid of it. Besides I know if I got rid of it I would end up regretting it. I wanted to keep the A1 because its different. Everyone has a B series but nobody has an A1 anymore.

More progress on the wire tuck today. I had to extend every wire for the side harness going to the front lights and such things. What a pain! Im also running out of that wire covering stuff from my donor engine harness.

P29 Intake manifold mostly assembled. Need to make a custom throttle body gasket, port match it to the intake mani, and helicoil a screw hole for the MAP sensor on the throttle body... it came from the factory with a stripped one.... :-\

That intake looks great... What's the difference between it and the stock intake?

It allows for the use of many other throttle bodies. That is a H22 throttle body on that one.

What duty (%) do you peak at maximum load on your injectors?
What kind of Power (hp/ps) do you produce?

Any tips on my turbo build on size injectors if not going past 200 hp?

I'm not sure about duty %. My tune is a little funky. The ecu thinks they're 650cc so the duty cycle isn't right on paper. I used 550cc and made 160hp to the wheels. I'd say go at least 550 cc that way your not maxing out your injectors under wot

Really good parts man..How which the entire conversion kit costs you?


I don't even know how much lol. Id rather not do the math. Entire thing is up for sale right now though.
