Well I wanted to add a single turbo to my PI cam/ intake swapped GT . Was wondering what i should look for. I dont want to make over 350 hp so i just want a really simple turbo thats cheap but reliable, don't know where to start at really.

Side question also is the 70mm throttle body, Do they really make a difference on my gt. CAI/ PI intake/cams ... thats all thats done. was wondering if i see anything from the 70mm .

Thanks allot.

Turbo kits run around 2500 give or take after the suspension modifications and the kit itself.

Minus a tune of course.

Your better off just spraying it

^ +1 what sharky said, he knows ALOT!

DONT go with the ebay turbo kits... i know a friend who has a buddy who has gone through a couple ebay turbo kits and 5 honda motors for his civic. My friend says with each try his buddy swears he has everything down right this time and its gonna work but everytime he makes it 10-20 miles and then kaboom lol. But thats why his buddy drives a civic and we here drive mustangs, a clear difference in honda/mustang drivers. And the friend that i know who told me the story about his buddy drives a pretty clean acura CL with only HID's because he's smart enough to not blow up his daily driver lol way off topic but i had to share it cuz it gave me a good laugh when i herd it.

That happens because your buddy's an idiot, not because he drives a Honda. There are tons of Hondas out there that will run circles around most cars here.

OP: Check out On3Performance if you're really interested in a turbo. http://www.on3performance.com/

They're pretty cheap, and while there used to be some mixed reviews about them, they've done a lot recently to improve, and I've only heard good things about them lately.
