    is it possible to build the a20a4 to handle a small amount of boost?im pretty sure stock hp is around 125 any way of pushing it to 175 maybe a little higher or anything at all?

    you can turbo just about anything.

    Assuming the block/rings/pistons are in good condition, you really don't have to build anything for that power gain.

    i don't know much about the a-series motors...

    but, given its displacement, and lower-than-honda-normal redline, i'm going to hazzard a guess than a t3 .63/.63 .57 a/r would be on point for that motor.

    is your motor carb or fuel injected? i think thats going to be the hardest part of your set up.

    what car is this, a mid 80s accord?

    B20A is the red-headed stepchild of B series motors.

    I didn't even know there was an A-series. But speaking of 80s Preludes, my friend use to have one with the 4 wheel steering. He always says how much he misses it.

    I figured that you meant the B20A from the Prelude, was never aware of A series motors.

    full-race, ebay (watch out for ssautochrome and xspower), probes, talons, supras, and eclipses. all good places for little turbos

    wastegate controls boost pressure, BOV vents air to keep it from stopping your turbine when you close the throttle body (take your foot off the gas)

    Whatever you do, stay the hell away from anything with "XSPower" stamped on it. All those turbos are total junk. Make absoutely sure that the turbochargers you buy are genuine major name brand stuff- Turbonetics, HKS, Precision etc.

    Junkyard turbos can be good. Pull a 14b from a 1st gen eclispe.

    rather than struggle with finding a manifold to fit try fitting the turbo to the exhaust under the car. Rear mounted turbos make for an odd setup in my mind, but it will work. Downside is longer lines and charge piping.
