Default What do I need for a Turbo in an 02 Acura RSX?

I have an 02 Acura RSX and want to put in a turbo. I would like to know what is a good kit. Also, what parts can be worked with from other cars... Like, if a turbo that fits a civic, would fit my RSX... etc. Any help???

ah RSX is not a Civic...If you're running the base RSX, don't ruin the tranny with a turbo...(the tranny is only made to go as fast as the 140 hp engine will take it..)If you want parts to fit your car, buy the parts that FIT your car...not some add on's...( Acura and Honda cars don't do well with after market parts.)

Parts aren't going to work, you need a complete kit to make sure everything will work together. Go to for turbo kits.

a turbo in a stock car isnt a good idea. first, it'll shorten your engines life, unless you buy new heads or something, AND having the turbo will make your car run weird. your gear ratios that matched the stock engine wont work very well with a turbo. sorry. =/
