There are all variations of after market kits available in any speed shop that caters to foreign cars. The larger the turbo kit you install, the more horsepower you can generate. However, the larger the turbo you install, the more strain and heat you create for the motor. The amount of horsepower you can achieve is almost limitless, but the higher you go on this scale, the more work you have to do elsewhere to compensate for the added pressure and heat. This includes the cooling system and exhaust, from the headers on back. Your stock radiator and exhaust wont be able to handle anything too hairy. Basically it comes down to how much you want, and how fast you want to go. And also what you're willing to spend. Unless you're a performance mechanic, I'd suggest consulting a shop that deals with this on a regular basis. They'll be able to give you the best bang for the buck. Good Luck, Have Fun, and DRIVE SENSIBLY ! This kind of speed should only be used under controlled conditions; IE a drag strip or race track. Also be sure that you can handle what you end up creating. Speed can kill. especially if you're not experienced at handling a high horsepower machine

if you build the block ..... new rods, pistons ,, the works .... you can boost 20+ pounds .... so easily you can add an extra 200 hp ... but thats with a fully built motor .... .if you just put on a kit with you stock motor ..... maybe 70 extra hp at most

If the engine and other systems are in good condition you could probably get to 200hp. Past that you better be monitoring everything. At 250hp you'll probably need injectors, and 300 you'll start needing internals.

The non-gsr/type-R engine runs a much lower compression than the two engines I've listed. Not to mention a non-Vtec motor is much easier to turbo (and a bit more predictable at higher rpms). Depending on other factors (intake, exhaust, headers, level of ecu programming, intercooling and boost level), you will get a varied number. Assuming you keep stock internals and run safely at about 6-8 psi, you could probably get an additional 60 horsepower. Any more boost and you run into reliability issues which would necessitate engine build-up.

Seriously, just save your money so you can trade your car.No one wants to buy a car that has been messed with in this manner. Anyone who considers buying it (including a dealer) will consider that you are a boy racer who has thrashed the car. This will seriously hurt what you can sell it for.All the other equipment on the car is designed to handle the HP you have now, so adding more is going to overload other components on the car. To do it right you should really upgrade the brakes and other items.Finally, doing this will likely invalidate your insurance. If you tell them you've done it, your premium will go up. They will assume that you must be a boy racer to add a turbo to a car like this. This makes you a higher risk. If you decide not to tell them and make a claim, they may refuse to pay, claiming you invalidated your insurance by making unauthorized modifications that altered the nature of the vehicle they thought they were insuring.So you are going to spend money, lose value in the vehicle, find it harder to sell, invalidate your insurance (or waste money on extra premiums). You might as well save up, trade in, and get a TL or something, if you want more speed.

It depends on what kinda turbo your putting on. With a Greddy Turbo Kit you might get 100-150 hp depending on the boost. Same with HKS. There are also stages like street the one I mentioned is a street kit, there's a racing kit, and a pro's kit, with this you probably be in the 300-400hp range.
