Fob :P

 

When you turbo Hondas you lose reliablity, you can get that back, but its a hardcore drain on the old wallet. Some will say just get a turbo car like a skyline, WRX etc. But turbo charged cars like hondas etc have a huge sleeper element that appeals to some people. So even though its can cost alot, the sleeper element can justify most of the cost. Just as long as you dont have some massive front mount like lookingforboost :P

try low pressure turbo, they will provide better pickups and wouldn't sacrifice the beauty of the vtec at high revs..but that's just my thought..

wouldn't a supercharger suit the Type R engine more then turbo?

 

can't imagine traction though on the FWD & handling.

You have to get all kinds of internal work done to reliably boost a Honda. If its a daily I'd say leave it alone. Just get a jdm front coversion :D and dump it.

I know two people who have had turboed dc5r's.. One has been driving it daily and taking it to drags now and then for about 3 years without too much drama. It's fast, but has a lot of torque steer and probably wouldn't handle as well as the original setup. Runs high 11s or 12s from memory ..

Has never had a rebuild or any internal work, but only runs low psi
