Turbo issues.

Hey everyone, recently got my turbo done but not pleased with the install. **** that used to work isnt working. leaking massive oil. stock gauges and just doesnt run right. Does anyone know a really good shop that knows turbo Hondas (B16) like the back of their hand??

Could really use the help!!

Thanks

Well i dont want to bad mouth any shop till i know exactly whats going on with my car. I know I still need some mods for the entire kit to be complete. however im just not pleased with the workmanship.

When at Idile the car is runnign rough and wants to stall untill it warms up then it sits just under 2g's. plus my v-tec isnt working anymore.

for what I know they did the best they can to street tune mechanical. I still need to swap my ecu to OBD1.

My fuel is the problem. It runs rich then at high speeds it run dangerously lean. as per my AEM gauge. Saying that, I still need to buy injectors and fuel pump.

Wheres your shop located???

doesn't sound like they did a very good job with the street tune, b/c the whole point of tuning is so that you don't run super rich or lean.

How can shops give cars back running worse than when they got there?....thats just not right.

I'd check for a vacuum leak if you say your car idles at 2000rpms.

If your car isn't obd1 then how did they tune your car?

the guy who did my turbo is a self proclaimed and well known DOHCTOR...............hahahaha
pm me if you want details about the shop cuz he used to be an affiliate but not anymore...=(.....great work though and honestly, ever since i started hanging out there when i met him before my turbo i must have seen him build up at least 5 high boost running b16's...same with b20 type r.....so he knows his stuff.

yikes
bud stop driving that car now and get someone to look at it
then do what they say needs to be done cause that car, as it sounds, is a bomb.
no offence but from your sig in the first post on this page i doubt your that mech incline, hope someone like zeeman, chris_v2, or WTi can help you out. Id help you out but i can only stand working on my own car and im in NB for a while.

Also do you have $ to get the car working right?

I'm not driving it untill its 100% complete. I know I need the injectors and Pump, However money got tied up where i could get them right now. Kinda blows!

My prob is just how the turbo was installed. I dont think the workmanship was there. when I look at it I see alot of short cuts. bolts were finger loose and ect.
