you will never break 250 hp on an n/a build.

- get a high flow cat

- a complete engine overhaul

you may be able to squeeze out 200 but you really have to know what you're doing.

make sure you get it professionally tuned to get the full benefits of all those bolt-ons

You can get a lot out of a Hondata ECU unit, if you know what your doing.

Chikenjoe is incorrect. B16As can be built to dish out 300 horses. I'm positive that your B18C1- which has a bigger displacement-can be built to put out 250 horsepower. The only thing wrong with your goal is that you will a higher compression piston to get the 250 hp. A rule of thumb is to add lower compression forged pistons to be able to handle the additional pressure that the turbo will give you. My concern is if you add forced induction to that higher compressioned engine, are you going to blow it? Maybe at 4-5 psi it might work but you're looking at a much shorter life ofn that engine even if you do lower the psi on the turbo. Good luck on that one.

BTW, to get that 250 hp, you'll need to do some ECU flashing, forged piston, stronger sleeves and crank rods, upgrade your ignition (and possibly fuel system). That engine must be built as tight as Fort Knox. We're talking a lot of money for real power.

your basic N/A bolt on will not get you 250 for and N/A. i dont see a point off going 250 before going turbo. a N/A build has tighter specs than a forced induction so you might as well just go forced induction and save some time and money.
