Hi. I'm from Lincoln, NE. I drive a 93 del sol. I've been in the Honda game for a long time and pretty much only worked with NA in imports. And have done lots of work with superchargers in American cars. My mission is to build the perfect setup for a d series Honda. I have a completely built motor that took me from fall 2010 to spring 2011 it is a d15b7 out of my old 94 hatch. The point of this motor was to be as fast as possible and get the best gas mileage possible. It gets the gas mileage 38 city and 44 interstate. But its missing the power i was looking for.

Eagle H rods
CP turbo pistons 75.5mm bore
9.6:1 compression
All King Bearings
ARP head and rod bolts.
The crank was lightened and balanced (Local Shop)
Cosmic head gasket
Ported and polished with a 5 angle valve job (Local Shop)
Over sized valves (KMS)
Dual valve springs (KMS)
Titanium retainers (KMS)
Crower
Intake manifold ported to match head (local Shop)
Lighter OE pulleys off HX model civic
Exedy racing 10.9LB lightweight flywheel
Exedy stage1 clutch.
Custom ground Delta cam.

Its really quick. But not fast enough. i want to try out a mild turbo setup and see if it is the direction to go with the motor. I couldn't care less about my car. It's the motor I Love. I'm hoping, if i don't get rid of all of it, I can swap it to a EK hatch. 2 seats don't work for me. If you have any opinions on how i should go for the turbo. i'm starting cheap because idk if i'm actually going to be keeping it. If i love it. i'll go all out. im looking for transferable in case i swap it. and i dont want a huge intercooler. Im thinking water to air. i dont want people to know its turbo. Sleepers are my thing.
Thanks for reading
Scott
