Tune it for 15 during your tuning session so that the ECU has the full capabilities it is supposed to, and if you have an electronic boost controller, run 10psi for a low boost mode and 15 for your hi boost mode (a lot of electronic boost controllers typically have two modes).

That way you are not beating on it for regular driving, but if someone wants a piece, you can click the high boost button and you got 15psi.

Remember, with great boost, comes great responsibility :p.

Niice! Also you may want to hit up Erik123456789, he's also the man when it comes to high boost on F23 blocks. If it were me I'd do 12psi, but 15 should be fine if everything is built to handle it. Good luck bro, can't wait to see the results!
ya according to my tuner and from what I learned in school a 5psi difference shouldn't be the contributing factor to make an engine go boom. as long as the tuning is done properly then its fine.

I'll have to see if I have that option through hondata since I'm using an ecu controlled boost solenoid. Plus that may also cost more. once its done and tuned I'll have all my time devoted to getting the 240 running so once that's going I won't be daily driving the accord anymore so if its going to cost more for a low boost and high boost tune I'm not gonna bother.


thanks for you help everyone. appt is tomorrow at 4pm. so unless it blows up I probably won't have an update till sometime around midnight since I'll be out boosting away :lolrun:

i say play safe and ride out 10psi for now. have some fun and then later on bump the boost. A good reputable tuner usually does not charge full on a retune/power tune if any at all.
I recently got a base tune by xenocron. They charged me what they charge and i dont have to pay anything for a power tune down the line which is going to be 20+psi on a 3076R :lawl:

hah we'll see how she does. I trust my tuner, so if he thinks she can handle it then I'll run 15. you have to remember shahid my turbo sizing is much smaller then yours since I was setting the car up more for low end torque. 10psi from my 16g is gonna be nothing like 10 psi from a 3076R. plus with my low compression it should handle the higher boost a little better. guess we'll find out whos right tomorrow haha

on a 16g at 15psi with head work done should make 335-335, without head work would be 15-20whp less assuming you kept 3" piping all over and your manifold.
Stock cam?

no head work. stock cam. outlet on the turbo is 2.5 so I'm runnin 2.5 all the way back since I already had the catback. eventually when I can afford to I'll be going full 3" with an external gate instead of stock internal gate. Maybe if I have a welder by then I'll attempt to fab up a new manifold as well to replace the cast one.
