nope not at all. engine has in stock rods and rod bolts.

The stock rods are prity good, The cast is not bad, could have a bit more triangulation on them but still it is not bad..

The some such was actually referring to a decompression plate..

Anyone really have first hand experience with these rods letting go at 10 psi?
I would really like to know, rather than finding out by trial and error. Where will i get upgraded rods and pistons from for the mivec, anyone has links?

I'd like to share a little bit of my 2nd Gen Mivec Turbo, this is the setup:

1) Sheepdog BOV
2) 510cc Injectors
3) E-manage Blue
4) Stock Block and Head
5) Bar and Plate Intercooler (28"x10"x2.5")
6) T3 .42/.48

Dynoed at 166whp at 35wtq.


Now running a T3 .60/.63, no dyno figures just yet. The setup has been running strong for 3 years now.[/img]

Thinking of doing a Gen2 Mivec, bolt on turbo... What do u guys think of this setup

Stock Gen2 Mivec mr
evo 6/7 td05 16g turbocharger (5 psi)
38mm wastegate
gen2 93T gsr injectors
piggy back ecu
straight 95 fuel or 92 with water/meth

can i use the mivec head gasket for that boost or do i need a 93T head gasket to lower compression?
is it safe to rev to 8200rpm on 5psi on that stock motor?

I see this is quite an old thread, but I wanted to weigh in here. I have a gen 2 mivec 1800 that I built using the 93 with the 92 head. I was running quad throttles etc etc a very high compression n/a motor that was making 125.kw. Well I decided to bolt a turbo on. I used the td05 with a 20g front wheel and the 10.5 rear. 3 inch exhaust straight through side piped. Std mivec intake manifold and t/b. The head is stock with Jun type 2 cams. Running E85, 13 psi boost it made 215kw at the wheels in 5th gear as the clutch was slipping. That's 288hp at the front wheels! It sounds so good revving at 8500!
Ill try and post a video.

Sounds like a nice setup.
When does the turbo create fullboost by?
