Turbo for my d15?

Im dropping a d15 with 147,000 on it into my sedan and then im going to turbo it. Im wanting to push 15psi just wondering what i should replace with better stronger parts so i dont break anything.

upgrade internals, rods, pistons, fuel pump, fuel management, ect.

Yes they are! If you have your mind set on 15psi then you will need to address these components. But I have known people who ran 10psi all day on stock bottom end with good results. I had a homemade(pieced together) turbo kit on my 88 w/ a d15b running 8lbs. Little booger was quick for a DD. Lol! It was just ugly as hell!

When you boil it down, fuel mgmt and tuning will make all the difference!

I might just do that then, How much hp were you runnin with 8 psi

hp will differ alot between cars.

its probably somewhere near 200-250 i would think.

If you want to stay d series for a while go nitro, then save your money and get a b18 series motor You can run nitro on stock motors
just around 7psi's but you will be fine.Ive learned from working at a shop
