Ok guys i really want a turbo but i will wait til i have the money if i have too but i have found a few on ebay and i am not very knowledgable with them. I kno the price is low but can u just check out the specs for me and see if its a decent turbo kit cuz i don't plan on running anything crazy on my 00' ls teg. just want like 200 crank hp and that PSH PSH BOV baby.

i kno its cheap so please no replys sayin that they suck cuz they are cheap i want to kno if they can be dependable mostly or if like these are ok cept for one part....which part... why? just the basics i guess.

Thanks

my friend bought one similar to the top one... and in all honesty the kit isnt too bad.. now keep in mind he has only had it on his car for a few months. and the only thing bad about the kid he got is the turbo manifold.. it cracked in mulitple places.. he got it rewelded and it is fine now.. its just the mani wasnt able to support the weight of the turbo..but i mean for a cheap way to make your car fast for at least a little while.. its not a bad deal..but im not a big fan of ebay kits because id rather have the quality.

OBX manifolds break. Usually fitament is crap.... even though it costs under a grand you'll probably end up spending another grand or more getting it to fit properly, which is nearly a Greddy kit that has proven good fit and good performance. If you want 200 CHP get I/H/E and Kpro.

If you can't save enough money, I would suggest not going turbo because shit is gonna break and you won't have money to fix your car.

If you absolutely HAVE to go turbo and can't wait, try going to a bank and apply for a multi-purpose loan or something similar. You'll be paying quite a bit of interrest, but if you want it, and can't wait to save up, that's your only other option.

I am kinda new to this turbo stuff, but I have been searching for quite a while now and haven't found anywhere that tells how much horsepower increase will a turbo give to the '06 RSX Type-S. So any help is appreciated.

Tried searching, didn't find anything. I was wondering if there would be any problems boosting if you live in an area with cold weather? I would like to go boost but just wondering if cold weather will hurt it.

im very new to the import world. but have been modding the crap out of domestics for years. durring that time someone told me that turbos and VTEC motors dont go well. (not reliable but make tons of power)

i just got an 02 RSX-S. its a little too slow for my taste but its 31 (or so) mpg is much better than my 65 Mustang 8mpg (highway).... can i turbo it and be fine (5-7psi) for a daily reliable car, or am i going to be replacing headgaskets too offten to use it for a daily?

Yes You Can Run 8-10 Psi Daily Depending On The Size Of The Turbo. A Kit Would Be Best And Its Up To You Witch One. I Havent Heard Of Anyone Blowing Head Gaskets While Runnin Low Boost. More Like Trans. Blowing Up. From What I Know The Motor Can Safely Handle HIGH HP. EG.350WHP With The Right Tune.

hi guys. i m using 2002 ep3 k20a, civic type R. i installed greddy' s both bolt on turbo and intercooler kit 2 months ago. it s tuned to 7 psi from westgate. kit includes 440 cc rc s. i replaced them with 750 cc rc inj.s. couse duty cycle was about %95-100 at 8000 rpm s. after using at 7 psi for a few weeks i upgraded the pressure to 0,8 bar (14-15 psi). i used hondata boost controller selenoid. by the way m using k pro. i didn t use the blue box emanage which was included in the turbo kit. upgraded the map sensor to 3 bar. also a 3 " exhaust cut off system is under the down pipe. also the stock exhaust system is stays untouched. by a switch inside m changing the way of exhaust. i didn t measure the car on dyno. the size of the turbo is super. there s no lack nearly. it svery good up to 7800-8000 rpm s, but then looses power. i tried my car with some cars like; impreza wrx ppp, impreza wrx with wf 39 turbo+evc5(running at 1,7 bar of boost)+3" apexi exhaust kit+apexi standalone mapped, impreza wrx STI with evc6(running at 1,9 bar of boost)+apexi 3" complete exh. system+apexi standalone mapped, and mits. evo 9 all stock... i rolled with them from 80 km at 3, only the STI could come by me up to 140 km. but then disappeared...

all the motor internal s are stock...

i have a 2004 rsx base automatic. im only 17 now but the car is mine- paid in full. my parents wouldnt let me get a type-s or a manual base. i was planning on simply trading my car in for a type-s when i turn 18 in 10 months, but i really want to start modding my car now- if i do, i probably wont get rid of it until it dies.

heres my question: can i safely boost an 04 auto base? is it a good idea or should i just wait... keep in mind i realy dont wanna wait.
also, remember this is gonna be a texas daily driver, lots of road trips and all that.
