Turbo OR Motor Swap



#1
I have a 2002 honda civic ex and i want more hp, but i don't know what to go with a turbo or k swap i am going to be buying parts at a time. I cant afford to get everything at once. My civic has 235k on it as we speak. I want to know the pros and cons of both! :lol:

Have you looked into how expensive and difficult the k swap would be.
If you boost it though even though it will be cheaper you will need to rebuild that motor cause that high of miles aint gonna last on boost.
