Well sense the motor swap idea was shot down by the parents...I have decided when I get my 92-95 H/B Si that I might as well go TurboCharged/SuperCharged. I was lookign on Ebay to get a range in price sense most things are cheaper on Ebay. Well I found some really cheap ones but Im not sure if they work or if they are good. Im not an expert on Turbo but I would like to learn more about it. As of right now Im looking for Turbo that works for a 92-95 Civic Hatchback Si. If anyone has any link to cheap Turbo that works good please post. I do not want to spend more than $700-$900. The cheaper the better, as long as it works.

Also, can you make your own using mix and match turbo parts?
This website tried many many diffrent ways to make them and on diffrent motor. Can it be done?

I dont care if I SuperCharge or TurboCharge as long as its better then a stock engine so any links/posts/comments will be apreciated.



(any of these good?)

Well if it works...I mean On web sites the turbo sells for like 2-3k. And some people sell theirs for like 700 - 1k so even thought its the same turbo you can get it cheaper, thats what I ment. the cheaper price the better AS long AS the QUALITY is there, somtimes you can find good prices from friends or somthing..

on the first one, theres no fuel management. and a t3/t4 is way too big to use on a stock d series motor. and it looks like its using a hf manifold, so you wont be able to use a/c with that kit. when you buy from ebay, your taking a huge chance, i would not reccomend it at all. the second one is missing parts, again uses the hf manni so no a/c. dont buy either of those. save your money and get a good kit. you can look in your local classifieds or www.thepartstrader.com just make sure to ONLY buy from someone local. not to advertise for another board (i personally hate h-t), but the turbo classifeds are extremely good, and you can ask for vouches to see if its a good person selling or not. or again, find someone on there thats local. http://www.honda-tech.com/zeroforum?id=39 if you do decide to go with a new kit, email anthony at www.sparkracing.com or join up at www.hondacamp.com for some sweet deals on turbo kits.
