Because the Type-S is a high-compression engine, wouldn't supercharging it be better than turbo?

Better how? What are your power goals? What do you want to do with the car? (1/4 mile, autox, daily driven power, time attack etc)

Supercharger is still boost no matter how you look at it. So no, not really. And it is belt driven. Turbo is powered by simply re-routing exhaust gases, that would otherwise have just gone straight out the back of the car, to spin the compressor by going through the hot side of the turbo and then eventually out the downpipe and rest of the exhaust.

High compression isn't bad as long as you have a good tune. High compression will still put down more power than the exact same setup on low compression, but low compression allows for moer error in the tune and is safer.

I just found a turbo kit on ebay from a company called FastWayRacer based out of Los Angeles. I am not sure about this one. The total price of the kit will only be 900. It come with everything needed except the down pipe. Any one have any suggestions?

ok so my power goal is 350-400whp. I think the full race stage 1 gt will get me there since its good to 400whp. Do you think the rsx stock internals is capable of handling this?

Rsx-Turbo is an unknown quantity on c-rsx
Can anybody help me please? I have 02 rsx type s with Greddy T517Z turbo kit and yesterday i took of the turbo to replace broken bolt and there was gasket that was in bad shape, so i replaced it wit new one. Now the car goes up to 3RPM and it starts to choke when i step on the clutch to shift the gear because of the turbo. Can anybody tell me what might be the reason. I think its up to wastegate and maybe oil in my turbo.
I would really appriciate some help.
