call the place that you purchased it from and see what they say, they would be the best to give you a correct answer

I would be careful with anything more than 7 psi with a stock engine that has stock compression.

turbo kits dont come with everything u need to put a turbo onto ur car. but if all u want is a turbo i wont go over 6 lbs because ur compression ratio is too high

You might go to the website ACURAZINE.COM, and snoop around. Bet you'll find threads discussing your very question. There are enough experienced & savvy people there who can provide you with sage advice. Another site to check out is KMS Engineering...they're specialists in Honda/Acura engine performance products. Particularly check out their engine deck guards, a part to consider whenever installing forced induction to a stock Honda/Acura motor.Various Honda/Acura motors are of an 'open deck' design...the space at the top of the block (where the head bolts onto) is hollow. This limits the stregnth of the design & how much forced induction boost you can safely apply. I know this applies to the V6 (J Series) motors, and may/may not also apply to other 4 cylinder designs. Anyway, it's at this place that KMS Engineering may have the product to help protect your motor while allowing the highest level of boost possible.

well its probably internally gated and already set for you. i dont imagine they would sell a kit without some sort of boost control. but 8psi is the usual. iv seen the b18a1's go on 12 psi for a pretty long time.. but you need to have it proffesionally tuned.. get an itr trans and you'll have way more fun with it...

With no Tuning, Stock Internals, no Intercooler = 5-7lbs, 91 PUMP gas ONLY.

Tuning Stock Internals, and an intercooler =8-12psi's 91 octane pump gas.

Stock Internals, no Tuning and an intercooler = 9psi's max (Playing with fire though, at least with the tuning it's been coaxed to running at high compression with boost).

It CAN be done, it just depends on your set up, I wouldn't go over 8 psi's period without an intercooler with or without tuning, but should you manage to get an Intercooler with this, and tuning, it's quite possible to run north of 10psi's with reasonable reliability on that block with some impressive performance.
