What do you think of this low budget turbo set-up? will chose best answer?

I have a 96 integra that I want to install a turbo, with only $1500. I only plan running on 4psi. Biggest problem is I cant buy a chipped ecu because its a 0bd2 antomatic.

Would this be a safe set-up for a stock car without a tuned ecu?

b18b1 motor

ebay turbo kit $800

190 lph pump $100

10.1 obx FMU $100

275 injectors $70

air/ratio gauge $50

boost gauge $50


Is this stock motor handle this set-up? I still have $330 to spend, is there any part I missed?


So impossible to run a turbo without a tuned ecu?

    never trust the ebay turbo kits...better off buying used parts individually

    read this site and get some knowledge

    if you want to tune it you need to get the ob2b i think adapter

    from hondata

    never go cheap on a turbo trust me, had a lot of friends use ebay kits... and they were epic failure...

    a cheap kit to build should cost about 3grand

    You can't run a turbo or supercharger without altering the fuel map...end of story. Ever hear of a greddy emanage or something like that? That's what you need if there's no dedicated ecm/pcm calibration tools for your vehicle.
