U basically have it all there just if u wana run more boost then bigger injectors and a good tune. Tune is everything. And u can run just a chipped ecu. I know u said besides a turbo but I have a brand new in box godspeed 63 trim for 200$ if ur looking for one

You will also need a turbo feed line and return line and a place to return the oil like a tapped oil pan

I think an easier route would be just waiting your 12 years to get your skyline

What? chipped ecu on chrome will work just fine. lots of guys are making great numbers on that. And AEM over Hondata? Not sure I agree with that. What's Hondata S300 running these days? Like $700-800 with ecu?

A little advice to the original poster.....you need to listen to the guys recommending you do some more reading about the subject. This project ALWAYS takes A. more money than you think and B. more time than you think.

The only kits that might fit the best is one that runs around $3-5K and even then you can expect some modifications, like to the bumper to make the FMIC fit. The "pre-bent" intercooler pipes will without doubt need tweaking. Nnot exactly sure, but the downpipe probably won't bolt right up to the stock exhaust. Depending on the turbo set up you may have to relocate cooling fans or even the radiator. A/C and power steering might have to go to.

I understand its going to cost a pretty penny and i have been getting parts little by little hope i can get it done before the end of summer and i will be putting it in an integra with a ls vtec now

I will agree AEM ems is the superior, however your post made it sound like hondata wasn't much like it was just a chipped Ecu

I've heard about issues with AEM EMS. Now it may have not been with hondas specifically. But a guy on dragsource the one putting the viper motor in a mustang I believe finally gave up on it after 2 or 3 returns to AEM, it keep blowing some capacitor or something.

Default Re: what do i need to turbo my civic

The speed governor that you are dealing with is probably a stock JDM ECU issue. When you get setup with a tuner, the ECU setup that you end up running will be able to negate that. As far as brand names, there are a lot of them out there. What hard parts are you looking to buy?

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.

Are you talking about the guy at Nightmare Motorsports? I heard about this issue he was having, I've also heard other people talk about this before. The injector drivers blow out for some reason, I know it happens on supra's as well, not to mention that on the V1 that there was random times where the car wouldn't even start. 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.
