Default Intstalling a turbo on a 2003 Honda accord?

Ok, Soo I have a 2003 accord v-rec v6 and I wanna put a small turbo on it. I just want a small boost without having to do a whole bunch of extra motor work. Any ideas or suggestions??

..You may have to replace/reprogram your engine ECU!

You did not specify why you need the boost. V6 is already a powerful engine. I'm thinking around 240hp give or take.

I'd recommend a turbo if you have some (race) track time or taken some race track driving classes. And if you know how to work on cars, like how to install a turbo or how a turbo even works.

I'd recommend against it if you don't know jack about cars, don't really know why you need a turbo, and if you have not upgrade other speed gainer parts.

If you mentioned why you wanted/needed a turbo I might be more helpful.

BTY any time you add a booster (turbo/supercharger) you are looking at a whole buch of extra motor work.
