Hi i am currently in the same position as Gmichie user. I want to be able to run 9-10 sec 1/4 mile. I have a budget of 6k. The ek9 has the b16b with 145k mugen twin loop cat back and mugen short ram full skunk 2 pro kit suspension and that's it. I want this vehicle to be reliable which may sound crazy but I don't want it in and out of the garage. It will be a weekend toy and nothing more.
Hi, I'm a newbie on here, going to be getting a type r ek9 in the next couple months, and with the spare cash, I'm looking to turbo it. I'm wanting about 250 with possibility to go to 300bhp. Just wanted your opinion on what turbo to get?
I've heard of a few turbo kits around, but unsure of the best one I should get? Looking at about 3k budget, but don't mind waiting a few extra weeks to save up another few hundred quid if it's worth it!
I've heard Ricky at Racetech is a good option, with the updated kit, that can handle 500bhp.
Also what type of upgrades should I do the the engine? Updated head gasket, fuel pump, injectors ect?
Any advice is helpfull.
Hows things bro been away for a while.... but lining up for a nice build soon, finally finished uni and working as a calibration engineer in ford uk now!! :), still thinkin about the b18 turbo idea....hope all is good!
sorry just another few questions, what sort of power can the stock crank hold, or will this need upgraded, id be aiming around 350 400 bhp, can it withstand that? will the stock valves be ok or would i need sodium filled valves? finally ive heard of an american company that are good for turbo kits, full race? have u had any experience with them?

So any advice on this list, wether ive left stuff out, some that isnt necessary or whatever it maybe will be grealty appreciated.
Hello, im new to this forum but ive read your two threads on your turbo conversion and a few other peoples on different forums and asked alot of advice. Im thinking of doing this also, except i cant get insurance on the b16a engine due to my age so im going to buy a 1.4 and put the b16a engine into and turbo it at the same time.. ino its more work and money but its my only option. From reading your threads i have came up off a list off things needed for the conversion, to be safe but also get good gains. i was wondering if you could take the time to get a quick look at the list and see if anything is left out, isnt needed or just needs changed. it would be greatly aprrecited as i then can start researching the price it will take to cary it out to see if its feasible or not. Heres the list.
So obviously i have to buy the b16a lump
