    I have a v-tech b18c in a hatch and I heard through the grape vines that it’s stupid to turbo a v tech. Give me your input.

    vtec engines work great with turbos. its been done a million times. put it this way, its easier to make over 300whp (turbo) with a gsr motor than a LS motor.

    my advice for your build.... first figure out what you can afford. research other peoples builds. see what parts they used and what power they made. so basically just like others have said, you just need to plan your build according to budget and horsepower goals.

    what mpdseg said.
    set a power goal first. you need to know just how far you want to take the car. a 700whp build is going to vary GREATLY from a 300-350whp build.

    research is your friend.
    don't come back and say the info isnt out there. because it is. hit up honda-tech.com and check out the "appearance build threads" section. go through some turbo builds there. ive spent hours browsing through there.

    oh and before anyone comes in and bashes on both of us check post dates

    if your serious about a build as stated before do the research. read build threads and find the ones that fit your budget and hp goals. make a parts list and then if you have questions make your own thread and fire away
