Default How much will a supercharger cost in a '95 Accord DX?

I just got a '95 accord, and I want to add a little more power.

What can I expect for parts/labor to install the cheapest type of non-garbage supercharger (I mean any type of supercharger, including a turbo)?

Is $600 a ridiculous budget? Even for a used one.

If you do the work yourself, 600$ is possible.

Superchargers are expensive.

Turbos are cheaper, and turbo setups are cheaper.

"A little power" can probably be done within that budget, but it'll require you to get out there and read.

Hop on Honda forums, the knowledge IS THERE.

Also know, the worlds FASTEST Honda Insight, has the 95 F22 accord motor in it, WITHOUT a turbo on it. It's a very well built Naturally Aspirated (nonturbo) engine.

For turbos, maybe look at DSM turbos (mitsubishi and stuff).

DSM turbos being like, TDO5, TDO4 (smaller), TDO6, bigger than the TDO5, but more boost than your engine can handle on stock internals.

Anyway, READ READ READ. GOOD and smart Honda guys can actually make a REALLY good career for themselves.

The Honda world is HUGE. And if you special in a Honda engine and show people you're good, money will fly into your pockets.

Edit: For BIG boost, after you rebuild internals, look into USED diesel turbos, VGT (Variable Geometry Turbos). They work differently then EGT? turbos (the normal kind). And you'll need a custom wastegate.

But DANG they push some SERIOUS freakin' boost.

I have a friend with a 500HP Fiero (3800SC engine out of a Pontiac GTP). He gutted his supercharger, and installed a VGT turbo charger... Tuning and some other work, and he's still using factory internals on that 3.8L.

Not sure how long it'll last, but those VGT turbos are NUTS!

As said before you can do it with $600 dollars. However, you will ruin the engine a lot faster since you can't afford the proper parts for upgrading your engine and it will lead to the death of your engine very quickly. Save up and do an engine swap Hondas B-series or K-series motor and then turbo charge that
