Wastegate, I would not go cheap. That controls your boost levels and is a VERY key part in a build. Be aware that the Ebay parts do not hold up as long, and can randomly fail leaving you with either a WG that is stuck open (creating little to no boost) or a WG that is frozen shut (creating infinite boost). Tial is the only brand WG I will buy. Made in the USA by guys that care about their product and are constantly making steps forward. There are some Tial knock-offs out there as well now, so be very careful that you are purchasing from an authorized retailer. TurboSmart and Precision also make very nice units as well, but the Tial design was the one that fit my setup the best. A Tial MV-S (38mm V-band) or a MV-R (44mm V-band) from an authorized retailer will come with a full assortment of springs to take you from 4lbs all the way up through like 22lbs on just the WG spring alone. Nobody else is doing that. Makes having to buy extra springs non existent, and you can start from wherever you want to when it comes to tuning.
thats great info now what kind of turbo is best for a ls vtec or a b16a

What are you looking to do with it? Power goals or setup goals. That plays a big part in what you are looking for.

However if you set that aside, the functionality and performance of AEM EMS is better then Hondata. From a personal prospective I would put Hondata in my car over AEM anyday of the week. It's just AEM is "better" when working. If that makes any sense.
yep, that's him.

So you are planning on going fast on the 1/4 mile, running it in autocross events and still keeping it a daily driver?

It sounds like you are looking for something that will have a nice broad usable powerband. A turbo the size of this unit would work fairly well, providing you some room to grow and still be very responsive at lower boost levels. Precision 3231

by the time you have 100g saved up, the skyline you want will be street legal in America and you'll be able to buy one for under 10k
