Default turbo on an 88 prelude 2.0 s?

I have an 88 honda prelude s 2.0 and was wondering if anyone has ever tried putting a turbo on one and has been successful or not. I am considering doing it if it's worth the time and money without failure.

In my opinion its not worth the time and money, First what condition is the engine in. Gathering its an 88 its about 23 years old so not that good. So you need money to rebuild the engine. Then you need to find out what is the car going to be used for? Racing? Draging? or just driving around town with more power?. if you just want more power around town then a waste of time and money again.

Then you need to upgrade all the supporting mechanical gear, Re-condition the clutch and gearbox, new suspension, upgrade the brakes, exhaust etc. as you can see its going to get really expensive,

You are probably better off just saving up and purchase a 1993 Honda Prelude Si Vtec, goes just as hard as a turbo, Heaps of aftermarket parts available, lots of tunning potential.

Suppose if you want to be different then stick with what you got and do it up
