hello everyone, I just pulled a turbo 1.8l out of my integra and put a d15z1.
I will be putting a turbo on it soon I want 45+ mpg and gsr hp. It seems that everyone here is forgetting that 1/3 of a car power slips out the tail pipe.
1.8 b18c1 turbo with cummings holset turbo, light flywheel, Ls 5th gear, 15" si wheels= 32mpg.
1.5 d15z1 (soon to be) turbo hope it gets better mpg.
Please keep your project and results up to date, I'm very interested in your project as I have a turbo Volvo wagon that I can find tons of performance mods for, but not much info on improving mpg at the same time. Any insight you find will help me. i.e. bigger turbo so you can stay out of boost at lower rpms, vs smaller turbo that would kick into boost right off idle, etc. Not many turbo guys on here that I've found.
My 2 bits of geekery: saving gas, and making t-shirts of my favorite movie quotes.
dude...i was thinkin the same idea as you...it just seem'd diffilcult though...tell me how thigs go, if things go smoothly man post the results or tell us otherwise...i love integras...i prefer them over civic's any day...but i gotta say with the economoy the way it is...i'm lovin the civc VX lolx
