Re: prelude turbo build. how much boost?

That is a better question for your tuner. If you would really like a better answer it owuld be best to list exactly what you're running as far as turbo and size, compression etc etc..

Re: prelude turbo build. how much boost?

I recommend going to Hondatech.com or Hondaswap.com since more tuners go their with their know how on doing things like that right. If not ask your local performance shop that has worked on H22 motors.

for the top one. 50PSi what are you trying to blow up the guy?

Re: prelude turbo build. how much boost?

You can get "estimates" from forums, but only your tuner will be able to say how much you can really push... hopefully you've got a good and honest tuner
