I'm sorry, but 100hp more in a stock teg for only 800 dollars is just not possible. To gain that much power you would need a whole lot of work done to it. You would need forged internals, blueprint the block, exhaust, a new ecu, and more... And all that would be before the turbo kit, which is gonna run you about $2000 for a good one. If you were to get an $800 turbo kit and push 100 more horses, either the turbo kit wouldn't work, or you're engine would blow.

Impossible. A quality yurbo kit by itself with everything you need will be in the $3,500 range. For $800 you will get a nice aftermarket cat-back exhaust $500, and a cold air intake $250 and this will give you about 5-8 more HP. The injectors for a turbo will be about $250, and fuel management (if the kit doesn't come with it) will be about $500 so that leaves $50 for the kit. Your goal is unrealistic.

No turbo kits for $800? I could prove that wrong with a simple trip to your local Pull-a-Part:First things first, lets look at your stock engine and see how much horsepower is 100 more than stock. I assumed that your non-VTEC engine is placed in an LS, and found a crank power figure of 142hp, and 127 lb-ft torque. Assuming a 15% loss in the drivetrain and a strong engine, your car should be making about 121whp and about 108wtq.I had a long explanation of what to buy and where to buy it, but instead I will throw a couple links in the sources that will help you along your way. $800 might be a stretch, but $1000 shouldnt be too hard. Don't forget that Ebay and junkyards are your friends in this endeavour.One other thing: The civic HF/VX manifold listed in the article will NOT work on your B18. You will have to get a log manifold or a tubular manifold.
