Default I wanna go fast

Alright, so ive not had a turbo car before. This will be the first one. Im not new to cars, or hondas for any matter. My question is what are my best options for boosting this car?
b18a in a 95 integra. GSR trans
As of now the engine is completely stock. I would like to run around 8-10lbs. As far as power, im not sure of a goal. It is not a daily driver, but i would like to be able to drive it daily if need be. Just looking for some opinions as to what I should upgrade, change. Different parts available etc...
I know its not cheap to build a turbo car, however i am looking to do this with a low budget in mind. Even if i need to buy parts separate or used. Thansk for the help in advance guys!

Probably best hitting up the import section or visiting a local shop. I know modified by kc does a ton of honda stuff and I believe a few other shops around town do alot of import turbos.

Thanks for the advice, im in Springfield. I cant really stop in a local shop in KC lol. But i may make some calls. There are a few guys local to me that have built some boosted hondas. However they always seem hard to get in contact with, or are too stuck up to help someone out. So aside from reading up on things, forums seem to be a good place to collect opinions.

The B18A/B have pretty solid internals as far as rods and pistons are concerned, depending on how much power you end up putting down you might run into issues with the crank.

I have seen an LS push 270+whp at close to 20PSI on stock internals so I think you should be fine with your crank.

The heads dont flow very well with high boost/high power, I think the build i mentioned above ^ was at its max because the head could not flow anymore than that.

I would suggest a GSR crank and get some head work done. You might not NEED to get it done now, but it never hurts to have it done.

Now on the other hand, if you can get your hands on a good solid running GSR for fairly cheap, you can achieve 500+whp on a completely stock motor with a big enough turbo. That would be my honest suggestion. You can throw a lot more abuse into it and it will hold up much better than the B18A/B.

Hope some of this is helpful.

Thanks cbryant1990. RIght now im looking at some clean up work at the machine shop, some PnP work to the head and intake. Some 9.0:1 pistons, eagle H beams, Some OE honda bearings, OE head gasket, ARP studs and rod bolts. Cast manifold, a g16 or something simular. Some ebay pipings, godspeed front mount. hondata, ebay bov. Not sure on a waste gate yet. Manual boost controller. Only plan to run around 8-10 psi. But i want to be able to drive it daily without issues. Of coarse on a good tune. What do you guys think?

Just a good rule of thumb with any car, and is particularly true about Hondas, if you turbo something that wasnt turbo'd to begin with, something is bound to break eventually. Not saying you couldnt DD it for a little while. If you have it on a low boost setting then you can get by a little better for a DD.

But it sounds like you have a good plan. Just dont cut any corners with the importants.

I understand the reliability factor, All of my cars up until now are on air. so no matter how great of an air suspension you build, things go wrong or break, and you are stuck walking to work lol. I dont plan to run much boost, nor do i rip on anything i own anyways, including the camaro. Just wanted to get into building something to turbo. I would like to find a block and build it from scratch, but for now just gonna beef up what i have and see how it goes. Also plan to run 550 injectors and a walbro 255. Thanks for the insight guys

Have you thought about a LS/VTEC swap? Should get more power and shouldn't be too much more expensive.

The head can flow more than that depending on the turbo setup.

If you're only going to be running ~10lbs, why upgrade the internal components? I would just throw head studs on it, bigger injectors and fuel pump and slap a snail on there. If you're feeling really frisky, I would get a gsr head and make your motor an LSV and call it a day.
