it can be done, but the stock carb doesnt work, and you need a good aftercooler

With your level of skill and money, no.

Fitting a turbo to an engine isn't a simple job and costs ££thousands.

don't try it if you are short on money. there are many things that has to be done just so so otherwise you will blow your engine. the turbo has to be fit for the size of your car-too big & you lose your ride.

Ah going by your spelling and grammar anything is possible. Anyway, some of the very first mainstream turbo cars were actually carburettor cars. But, since about 1993 virtually every car produced has been either single point or multi point fuel injection, so the Honda you are talking about probably is injected. Try buying something like Practical motorist and look at some of the historical projects.

Hi fitting a turbo here in the united kingdom is not really an option now due to government agency VOSA any car found not to be standard is now crushed.. be it being found through a spot check or as a result of an accident.

The procedure involves re-jetting of the carb to produce a lot more fuel as a turbo with make the mixture very lean and holes in pistons is the result as they tend to run a whole lot hotter.

extra cooling is required and a good oil supply just for the turbo hence the need for an inter cooler. to keep the oil from boiling away.

Your old car will have lost a lot of horsepower over the years due to wear and tear etc and the best way of getting them back is to do a top end overhaul.

That means removing the cylinder head and grinding in the valves and doing a de-coke.

Do not remove the accumulated carbon deposits from the outside edges of the piston tops as that forms a sort of oil seal and you will burn more oil if you do.

Replacing the valve springs is also a good idea as they get a bit tired over time and can reduce your rev range, a lot of people tend to forget that these days.

Adjust the tappets afterwards.

For further advice;

A turbo or supercharger is not a viable option for you.

Regards, Bob.
