Too be honest you would find more help on Honda-Tech.

Be prepared to spend alot of money on a good kit. You'll have too if you want it to be reliable. If you don't wanna spend don't expect high quality parts/long life out of your setup. And remember, with boost, TUNING is key. Be prepared to spend a few hundreds on the dyno time. You'll want to anyways so you can show your graph to us :p . I can help you as much as I can I've helped on a few turbo setups including some that reached 700whp.

That civic looks rough. Less rusty then mine so I ain't saying anything. Looks like a decent turbo setup. I really don't like how that throttle cable is setup with the manifold.

Nice setup...First that D now the B..... :lol:
Couple of questions, how well did the internal wastegate of the GT25 work? Ive heard you an get better reults from an external wastegate at low boost levels like 6-9psi...
And if you had a choice, GT25 or GT28
And, at what rpm did the turbo start to spool.

I want to turbo a y8/a6 mini me, and cant decide between the gt25 or gt28.

Internal wastegate worked fine. external is always better, but i had no issues.

my turbo IS a GT28.....its kinda complicated GT28R = GT2560R. If I had to get a turbo now Id geta GT28RS ot a GT3071.

I hit full boost (15psi) at high 3k rpm.

which exact turbos are you looking at?

Well, Ive lost the link for the garret turbos for $775 on the honda-tech marketplace.....Damn. The turbo I was looking at was the GT28RS and another GT28xxx Im not sure which one it was as I was going by the list on honda-tech and hadnt looked at the specs for them yet... But if you were hitting boost in upper 3k then I guess a GT28RS isnt to big.....Only running 6-9psi anyway shouldnt be bad, IM just worried about boost creep on that size turbo with an internal wastegate. (still have LOTS of research to do) Just looking for a good turbo that will work good with in low boost, but still be good for higher boost levels...

:edit: Im an idiot... its a GT2871R
After seeing this here, (where I also found you lol) I would say this is the one Im going with...
