Default What do you guys think of this turbo kit for my 2000 Honda Prelude?

I own a 2000 Honda Prelude that I love, it's a very fun car to drive and has great handling and puts out a good amount of power. I'm going to install this turbo kit in my car and then get it tuned. My dad is an automobile technician and has been working with cars for about 17 years now so he will be helping me with the installation and getting everything right for it to run safely and properly on the stock engine. I only want to boost 7-8psi, I just want some more power and I'm hoping to get at least 280hp. I also want to get the APEXi N1 Catback Exhaust installed for the turbo to work better.

Here is my car

Here is the turbo kit

Here is the exhaust

I don't know if you know this but the higher you go in boost the more likely you are to blow your engine so that's why I said I only want to boost 7-8psi safely on my stock engine. Yes it has an H22A4 engine which comes standard for the 5th gen. Honda Prelude Base and Type-SH.

Thats a very good Kit, thanks god you are not of those guys looking for a Kit for $49.99 USD hahaha, sounds a great mod and @ 8psi you could be at 300 HPs, so your goal is just around the corner.

You can use a car performance simulator to virtually try different turbo kits on your car or simple define your new power and run tests to see how the acceleration would be with that power/tq figures.

What I think is people like you should know that cars made with turbos have stronger parts in them.. You put a turbo on an engine that was not built to take a turbo the engine and other parts will essentially blow up..

Your car already makes 200 horse assuming it has the h22. So you dont need to get of of pressure to reach your goal. I would go 10 psi or you could blow your engine. I would also suggest getting a log type Turbo manifold. It won't produce as much power as a tubular manifold but it will last alot longer. One more thing don't skip out on a good ecu tune. This will keep everything together. Have it professionally tuned or you can get one from hondata
