Default Integra Turbo???????

I have a non-vtech 1.8 liter integra engine with about 30,000 miles on it and new full cat-back exhaust and brand new cold airintake system. Just wondering if it would be worth the amount of money to increase the horse power by about 100. Would it be worth it and would the car feel really fast? If so what method of increasing horsepower would you recommend. Sorry theres alot of questions but i just have to figure this all out!!!

Yeah, turbo is defenitely the best way to go. And that motor is perfect for it! Just make sure it's built to hold the power.

the guy above me is wrong...you NEED serious engine overhauling for an engine to survive a turbo. Im not a rich man, however, if i were to turbo my 2006 Acura RSX Type S id want a complete overhaul, cams, springs, sleeves, pistons, rods the works... turbos are NOT a snap on part like companies advertise them. Well they do snap on eaisly, but the survival of your engine is very limited. If i were you id put at least stage 3 internals all around before turbo then at least you can mess around and not kill your engine every 6 months. and spend alot on a turbo at least 2K. Look into all motor unless you want to be swaping engines alot

its half and half of the two guy above me....the b18 dohc non-vtec motor is perfect for a small turbo...i wouldnt expect a 100hp gain but 40-50 would be reasonable...you dont need an overhaul on the motor because the b series motors are virtually bulletproof! i had a 94 ls sedan intake, exaust, and chipped...i got it to 150 on the highway and it redlined at 8200rpm...with minimal work to the motor you could bolt on a small turbo and get some serious power increases
