Default What all do I need to Turbo my 2000 civic ex?

I'm planning on getting a turbo kit for my 2000 honda civic ex. I've seen kits on ebay for $600. I'd like any opinions on ebay kits and also opinions on others out there. I'm trying to get a decent job but keep costs as low as possible. Also, I'm not to smart about turbo's so I was wondering what else I would need done to my car if I do end up getting a turbo. Any information would be great and thanks in advance.

they arent too good. and since you dont know anything about boosting a car...i highly suggest reading turbocharging performance jeff hartman. get it at your local book store, it has everything you will need to know BEFORE you turbo your car. if you dont wanna spend the time and study the will need to buy a name brand kit....greddy, turbonetics, rev-hard and so on. and i suggest on staying at 8 psi or below, and youll need to have a leak down test done before you boost....this will alert you to any current issues with the motor.

ebay turbo kits are missing ALOT of the essential peices that make up a kit....also fitment is something that is an issue with alot of these. most of these kits are just random things slapped in a box, usually consisting of a turbo WAAAY to big to run on a single cam 1.6l. for your motor you will want to run either a 14g, 16g, or a t25......these will fit your motor perfectly.

in order to properly turbo a civic will run you in to the 1k if your conservative by either building a kit or use an ebay one... but you must know how to map the turbo you choose, unless the manufacturer has provided one for you. which name brand ones will provide you with this information.


- turbo manifold

- turbocharger

- wastegate...unless your using an internal one

- charge piping

- intercooler

- blow off valve

- boost controller

- boost gauge

- t-bolt clamps

- 4-ply silicone connectors

- oil feed line

- oil return line

- oil feed T

- a bung for your oil pan....must tap the pan and have the bung welded in

- piping for the wastegate...if external

- bigger injectors....dsm injectors work if you run the resistor box

- vaccuume hoses

- chipping the ecu....either hondata or chrome works the best imo

- down pipe

- upgraded clutch to handle the extra umph

- tuning on the dyno....the most critical part, if you dont your just driving a bomb waiting to go off.

EDIT: nice needed to change your name mr see your just jealous that you cant affort shit. and by the way, i do like old school muscle.... getting another car next 86 fox body. i love my hondas tho....make em have power an still get the gas milage

Why would you want to turbo a riceburner?

You'll just end up wasting $5000-$10000.

It'll just end up being as fast as a bone stock mustang.

I have no clue why steve h would waste his money putting big turbos on his civics.

I could buy a mustang for $1500 and throw $10000 in it and be running 10s. He probabaly spent over 15 grand to get his civic in the 11s.

He may have a fast civic, but at the end of the day its still a civic and it will NEVER sound as good as good old american muscle. Thats my opinion.
