Default Wanting to turbo my 95 civic ex d16z6?

I want to turbo my d16z6 (140,000 miles) but dont want to blow the motor. What is the cheapest most reliable way to do it? I put a turbo on my 00 civic lx and it lasted about three months but i was in a hurry and didnt have much money so i just put the turbo on with a side mount intercooler off a talon tsi and didnt get bigger intejectors or nothing.

engines arent designed to accomodate a turbo therefore it is suggested that all the internal and air flow parts at least be a "stage 2".... still at that point sooner then without a turbo you WILL blow your engine. soo id suggest you getting off your tubo love kick and swap your engine for a nice engine like a K20Z or something upgrading that engine (all motor) then youll be faster then your turbo.... orwaste your money over and over again blowin engines...so do it right get a GOOD swap and all motor it... turbos are for rich people who dont have to worry about money and blowin engines

build a engine with low compression, and stronger internals.

Every post you have made on here is inaccurate. You don't know a damn thing about modifying or tuning.

First of all, do you know what the cost of installing a K swap into a Civic is? And keep it naturally aspirated to go faster than a boosted motor? You, sir, are a retard.

OP: If you really want to boost your current motor without building it, you can do it, but you need to make sure you are thorough when putting it together. You need to make sure you have the proper fuel delivery (pump, injectors, etc.) and you need to make sure you have a turbo picked out that matches your overall power goals.

I can't express it enough--TUNE YOUR CAR. Pay the money to get it tuned by a reputable tuner using proven parts. No Ebay parts, whether it be a turbo, chip, pump, etc. should be used on your build. Your build is only as good as the weakest part. Your tune will determine how reliable your car will be.

I know dozens of people that are running boosted motors with stock bottom ends and don't have a problem. Many of them have more miles on their motors than you do. The key is in the tune.

Look into the aftermarket YCP Vitara pistons and custom length rods from http://www.FJdistributors.com. Both together will cost you $445 + shipping, where most aftermarket pistons cost around this price alone. This setup has been well documented to hold over 400whp. Obviously along with that, you'll replace the bearings, and gaskets, etc.Next, you'll need to find someone who is a reliable tuner. Find out what engine management systems they recommend, and what they are comfortable using. There are free EMS's out there, like Crome, which will cut the cost over using something like Hondata. So in most cases, you'll need to spend the money to get your ECU chipped as well; but it will still be cheaper than getting something like Hondata. This is absolutely the most important part. If you don't have the money to spend $600+ to get your car professionally tuned, then you're going to blow your engine again GUARANTEED. In addition to that, you're going to need bigger injectors, and I highly recommend using a front mount intercooler this time. The front mount will keep things cooler and are far more efficient that the side mounts. You didn't mention if you are going to be buying everything all over again, or whether you are using the old parts from your old setup. Assuming that you're buying new parts, for information sake, here are some ideas. For a turbo manifold, go on ebay and find a cast iron one, that has the wastegate hole in the center, rather than just on one cylinder. They are cheap ($200 or less), and are more efficient and less expensive than a log style manifold. IF you want to go really cheap, you can find a '92-'95 CX or VX, '88-91 Civic STD, or '88-'91 CR-X HF exhaust manifold, and buy an adapter plate to mate to it. It basically turns the stock manifolds into turbo manifolds. For the turbo, check out the T3/T04E 50 trim or 57 trim, depending on how much power you are looking for you may even want to get a cheap DSM turbo. These turbos are plentiful and are reasonably priced at around $500 brand new (the T3's I mean). But with the turbo's, stay away from the ebay CDM (Chinese Domestic Market) turbochargers; the oil seals tend to blow on them after some time. And whatever you do, don't buy a full turbo kit from ebay. Those cheap no-name brand kits are cheap for a reason, so stay clear or suffer the consequences. The rest of the stuff is fairly easy to find, because they are pretty much generic parts. Oil return line, piping & couplers, gauges, BOV, wastegate, etc.For more info and more ideas, check out these sites that are devoted to the turbocharged D-series engines.http://www.d-series.orghttp://www.tu...emadeturbo.com

genius please do research before you ask a question. If you want a turbo dont go cheap and buy just the turbo. save up your money and buy the whole kit and internals and dont go right out and try some huge psi like most dumbasses with stock internals

Buying a turbo kit isn't the best way to go. It's better, and cheaper, to piece together your own turbo kit after figuring out what you need and researching which parts are best.
