    will replace with arp headstuds when i get a new head and low comp. pistons.

    How ya doing Kevin! That's pretty sick you're boosting now. Congrats.

    Anyhow,
    Considering that our brittle aluminum Honda engines have no initial anti-knock countermeasures for boost, and that we've got floating aluminum cyclinders, I think FI B-series engines need as much protection as possible.
    And considering you're running 10.6:1 C/R.....eeeekkk! (Kaaaboom!) If you're not careful. (Also, what are you running for engine management, and fuel support?)

    IMO, B18c (longer version) ARP studs are worth the piece-of-mind, that your head has a smaller likelyhood of separating from your block. (Maybe overkill, but short of a sleeve-kit, I'd do block girdle, block gaurd, and all ARP fasteners.)

    My 2 cents. And congrats on the boosting Kevin. I'd like to see you're car again. Are you still rolling on the blue and red wheels?

      you're fine at only 6 psi.

      but why didnt you use new head studs when you replaced the slugs?

      10.6 compression isnt all that crazy...just use more caution in the timing maps

        didnt change slugs, used a itr block, needed a motor, so i put together the vtec/b20

              Why a non-vtec head? Also, what's your turbo specs? Also, why are you using a stock PR4 ECU to boost on?

              BTW, nice block.

                LS block broke, no money for vtec head, had parts laying around, so i made a frankenstein of my own.

                turbo specs, not sure.

                stock garrett T3

                from like, a ford turbo coupe.
