FOR SALE, Vic. Track Car. City GA1, Intercooled T1 Engine, Garret T25 turbo, Adj. Suspension, Avon tyres, F6p harness

Hi All, A number of years back I built up a track car based on a Honda City GA1 and a City Turbo engine.

Inverted struts! Serious business. Awesome build man. It looks like you have a T25 on there, would be interesting to see specs of it if you are ever around that side of the motor :P Needs a bit more spring rate in the front :lol: Most factory Hondas need work on the rear to stop them understeering ...

Yeah in the link the first set (fronts i think) look adjustable and almost brand new. Further down for 4000yen there is a set which look similar to the first set (no honda part numbers) those are possibly KYB adjustable as well, The rear shocks look to be the same as EF / DA Integra only thing will...

Honda GA1 fitted with a City Turbo I motor for track days

Hi, It was suggested that I start a new thread and put some photos of a project I've been working on for a while with my Dad. So here it is. Basically we had a Honda GA1 sitting around that had some overheating issues and a blown head gasket. So instead of throwing it out thought we could have some ...

Hi, Just thought I would add that we recently completed a engine swap on a GA1 and put in a City Turbo I motor. We are setting this car up for track/fun days. So all the emission stuff (no more black box!) have been removed from the engine etc. straight through exhaust, bigger garret turbo. etc.. La...

Thanks for the heads up. Yes you a prob correct, it may have something to do with offset and/or input resistance. Now that I know others have had problems I will look at the front-end citcuit on the ECU before connecting anything.

Cheers

Thanks for the info. Had a feeling that would be the case based on the pressure/output curves in the manual. I actually thought about hacking the software on the ECu. Done this will a saab turbo I used to have. However, using one or more intercepters (Silicon Chip kits) will be much simpler for now....

Different function between MAP A and B

Hi All, I’ve searched through the forums but have had no luck. Can anyone tell me why there are two MAP sensors ? From the forums, it looks like MAP B handle boost cut etc. So which determines engine load ? I am looking at connecting and intercepter to change boost limit and possible A/F mix Thanks
