forced induction on ls/vtec

anyone have a similar setup?

whats a good cpu to run with this setup?

tried the b16 cpu but around 6000rpm, something goes wrong as if the power cuts off or some kind of a kick

could it be s. plugs, fuel pressure, injectors, cpu, or the chatger itself?

if anyone has done this install successfully
info would be appreciated...thanks

You'll probably need a new MAP sensor,depending on how much boost yoru running.Ive read that honda guy's use a GM 3bar map sensor because it can handle the increased airflow and is good for over 18psi. The stock honda one is only good for a bit of boost. Im not the expert so im only going by what ive read and what people have told me. And if you can't afford an Engine management system then you'll need some sort of piggyback system like an AEM or one of those super-AFC boxes or whatever there called. You can get away without it, but most people recomend it. Aside from jsut bringing your car to someone who can Dyno(with a wideband O2) then re-program your computer for you.

a GM three bar map sensor is good for reading two bar boost, or 14.7psi times two (1 bar is 14.7psi). A hondata s200b is a nice ecu upgrade, plus it comes with three step rev limiter and datalogging for free now.
