    ok i just bought a 93 civic lx sedan. i have been driving it for about amonth now and i realized that 102hp and 98tq sucks. so i have started lookin at cheap ebay turbo kits just as a quick boost in power. but im not sure if i should go with the cheap ebay turbo kit cause i dont know how reliable it would be. does any one on here any experance with the ebay turbo kits?

    oh the kit im looking at is D-Series TURBO KIT D15/D16 CIVIC INTEGRA DEL SOL T3/T4:eBay Motors (item 270426797077 end time Jul-21-09 23:15:00 PDT)

    In the end it will be less expensive to just get a good kit. I have a e-gay kit and i had to modify so much shit to get it to fit right. Now iam up grading all the shitty parts. So yeah its cheaper and better to just get a good kit. And with the kit you will need chipped ecu bigger injectors, a good dyno tune. Bigger feul pump and thats just to start

    i think im just going to buy the kit i want one piece at a time. i dont want to push alot of psi(maybe only like .2-.4 bar). yes know that might sound stupid to some. but i have no need to go super fast with a 93 civic sedan. i have my 91 si for that :) my sedan s going to be a "family" car. me and my girlfriend just had our first child a few months ago.

    upgrading the cooling system was already part of the plan. i planing to use oil cooler, spoon or mugen fan swich, mugen thermostat, thermal intake gasket and anything else i can find out here to make it run cooler.
