Jeff what about the EGR tube on our SPI. Can you hook us up Jeff, Ill pay more for the labor.

How much boost can we run on our stock motors with out blowing it? And what about a wastegate, is there a way to add one?

I disabled/removed the EGR about 3 years ago when I installed the HO header.

Some where between 5psi and 20psi, depending on how good of a tuner you are, and how well you set it up.

Yes, there's the stock T25 internal waste gate there.

I kno that u got a 1.9L, but how well will it bolt up to the 2.0L?

Are you willing to put a kit together w/o the down pipe and the piping cause i can get that done at a shop i got to right now. I would just love to run a turbo on the SPI and give these Civic a real challange.

Actully, that motor in the 96lx Escort IS a 2.0 SPI, I swapped out the 1.9 about 3 years ago. (I just left the 1.9 valve cover to confuse people)

Willing? Sure. But unfortunaltly with the full time job, kid, wife, house and family I would'nt have the time. I had to use some vacation day's just to get some time to work on this car.
