Probably another turbo question

OK, i've been doing a ton of research, and I'm coming up with ALOT of different routes I can go. I have this site here which is a complete kit for 2 grand. I just want some feedback on this. And if somebody has been shopping around for a kit for a H23a Si, and pieced together a good one, I'm VERY open for suggestions.

ok, i re-read the site and there's no fuel components included. Somebody said that you can get a complete stage 2 bolt on kit from turbonetics. I just need a push in the right (and cost efficient) direction.

i've heard decent things about treadstone kits, but theres not ALOTTA people running them. at least the most vital parts are name brand like turbonetics, hks, greddy and such. but i'm telling you right now, do NOT expect any kit to bolt directly right up without needing any modification or making any sacrifices. alotta kits will require you to ditch either: AC, PS, cruise control, or your washer fluid, or any combination of them.
with that kit you'll also need:
downpipe: $400
walbro fuel pump: $100
injectors, prolly 450's: $30
and most importantly is engine management. you can get a chipped ECU from either phearable or xenocron for like $140, but then you NEEEEDDDDDDDDDDDD to get it tuned!!!!!!!!!!!
street tuning is around $250, dyno tuning is about $4-500

for any, RELIABLE setup, expect to pay around $3,500 minimum.
just remember not to skimp on ANYTHING!!



and always keep in mind the last 3 lines in my sig.

Where are you located?

What is the stock compression of the H23A?

It may need a piston swap to have any life after turbo.
I would run 7.5 -8 and boost it around 6-8 psi for pump gas.
Should jump up an easy 60-80 HP with a good tune.

i'm in jersey
stock H23 compression is 9.8:1
if your gonna replace the pistons before turbo, you might as well do pistons, rods, and crank while your in there. good thing about your F22B is its almost identicle to H23's, except with an iron block/sleeves

as long as you can find a tuner in your area that knows hondata, its a pretty damn good program.

yea, but it wouldn't make any sense to do it. if your gonna go thru the entire process of sleeving the H (which is NOT cheap at all), you might as well throw some aftermarket sleeves in there that are proven to hold 40-50psi, instead of stock sleeves that can hold maybe 20, at most.
