well, besides the turbo kit, you will pay to basiccly rebuild the entire engine if you want to use the turbo to its potential. My advice, buy a Nissan or Toyota, slap on a turbo, and boost the hell out of it as much as you want. Honda engines arent made for that, Nissans are. The engines sold in US by nissan are all sold as a turbo model in Japan. Can handle the extra punishment with ease.

Around $3000-$4000, depending on what you get, and you may get the ol' civic into the 14's 1/4 mile! BTW- 14's are slow!

well it depends...is it vtec or non-vtec?? if it is vtec u will run into trouble because a vtec cylinoid runs on oil pressure and if u take away pressure vtec will not kick in and u will not get the proper oil efficiancy to the turbo. if non-vtec it should be quite simple if u have the car tuned and got the right computer for the turbo.

dont waste your time. you wouldn't even get into the 14s he was being generous lol. the dx modely makes like 100 hp. you might crack the 15s with a turbo. go with nissan or toyota. why do people insist on wasting thousands of $ on hondas? its a lost cause.

to put a turbo on a dx model 1.5 Sohc 95.4hp stockis a waste of time because to get to 160+ hp it would take at least 15-19psi and a stock Honda moter can only handle 7psi the cost would be in the $5000-10,000 dollar range and for that price you could get a B-series dohc vtec engine an run N/A

well, its a lost cause in a majority of cases. But those people who know wtf theyre actually doing and know engines can run a honda into the 9's... out here in Palmdale there is a Civic that does it. Granted that is tons of money... but spending 20,000 on a motor plus 3-6 on the car (if its a 90's) is still half the price of [insert car here] and can run just as fast. Plus, parts are cheap. But, it's still a honda.
