So far, I've been to a few places online, but found nothing.Do they even make turbos for 91 Civics?

Complete waste of time and money. It will still be a slow excuse for a car.

Try this link http://www.kingmotorsports.com/ If they don't have it and turbo's are available for 91' Civics, you will find it on eBay. I am restoring a 1985 CRX-Si and have found just about everything I need on eBay. You might have to type different things into the search on eBay until you get some results, but it will probably work. Try different combinations, words, descriptions, etc. Good Luck!

personally i hate ignorant people like "just me" that just blurt out there opinion on something they know nothing about. i have seen ef hatches with stock k20 motors in there car smoke 500whp evo's, skylines on the road coarse. and plenty of ef civics in the 10's with built b series and gt35s on them. just go on honda-tech.com. theres always a turbo kit new or old on there for sale for your car rather you have a d, b, or k series motor in it.

expanding on what that dude said in the above....Nobody makes a turbo kit for your car straight out of the box, you'll have to piece one together.. So here's what I suggest. Why not just swap in another motor first, then when you get bored with the new power, then that's when you turbo it. When I say a new motor, get a newer D series engine or go B series for big power gains (B16 or 18). Those two are your best bets. Chances are, you won't be able to afford a K20 swap because they are way too new. Yeah, big deal that a dude has a K20 swapped into an EF, he spent way more going that route than you will swapping in a B18C1 with a turbo on that. But there are lots of forums out there, so have at it

I love these Honda bashing idiots that don't understand the concept of power to weight ratios. Go pound sand.

go to a junkyard, look for turbo motors with a similar displacement to yours (though ive heard 2.2L saab turbos are a good size for the 1.6L hondas). Take from one of these the turbo and blowoff valve. then, get a frontmount intercooler, and (if you have a d-series motor) get a civic HF or 1 92-95 Civic VX exhaust manifold. the manis are good candidates for an adapter plate from a muffler shop so u can hook up the turbo. then get some piping with the same diameters as your turbo in/outlets and your throttlebody, some of those rubber boost couplings, and fab up charge pipes. get bigger injectors (and a bigger fuel pump wont hurt), and a chip you can tune. if you do it right, you can build your own turbo kit for less than $1000.
