Some integras have an engine that can hold a turbo and its torque. The problem is the transmission that usually break as soon as that turbo kicks in at 4-5rpm. Dont supercharge it cause it will be innecessarily too expensive. If you are just looking for better performance and not HP, upgrade spark plugs, intake, fuel, and oil. Small things can go a long way!

Not much room for a supercharger under the bonnet, and a turbo is a lot of hassle to fit. Especially to a front-wheel drive car!

You will blow the engine in under 10 minutes after installing a turbo. The supercharger requires a lot of engine mods before you can even think about installing one.Go with this setup instead: cold air intakeperformance plugs and wires - at least 8MMupgrade the ignition systemreprogram the computer

Thousands of people turbocharge Integras with stock engines. Of course about half those people simply slap on the turbo kit and end up destroying their engines. While the other half does it the right way. To do it the right way, you at the very least need proper fuel delivery, engine management, and to get it tuned by a professional. Your best bet would be to spend the money and rebuild the engine with lower compression pistons, stronger rods, and head studs. Off the top of my head, I don't know of any kit out there that comes with proper engine management. There's the popular ones like Hondata or AEM EMS. And there's the not so popular, but VERY effective, one out there like Uberdata, Crome, & Neptune (just to name a few). So on top of the price of the turbo kit, expect to pay for other stuff like the engine management, bigger injectors, a fuel pressure regulator, and the tune (usually costs $500-600 alone). It may seem expensive once you start doing things the "right" way, but it's less expensive than having to buy a whole new engine if you blow it up by skimping on parts.

Put very simply, if you want a faster car, buy a faster car. It'll be cheaper - and more importantly, better.To give you an idea of the problems that you're facing, you will need to change the compression on your engine, the con rods, the electronics, the exhaust manifold, the intake manifold, the injectors and the cooling as well as potentially fitting an intercooler.Once that is done, you're brakes could do with uprating which will affect the unsprung weight....couple that with the extra sprung weight under the engine and the extra nose dive under the extra breaking will mean that you'll want stiffer suspension on the front which then won't match the rear.Get any of that wrong (especially the electronics) and you'll end up with a dog of a car - it probably wont handle and driveability will be awful.Really....buy something quicker and save yourself a fortune. For a normal road car that does everything reasonably, manufacturers generally know what they're doing. Buy something stock.As you seem to like Jap cars, maybe a Skyline, Evo or WRX....Best of luck in whatever you choose.
