    the best turbo kit is not a kit at all.... it's the one you piece together yourself.

    ^ Ok thats great and everything, but you still need to consider what B said.

    You can buy a turbo kit, but still, its better to piece together your own. You save money, and you can also end up with the perfect setup for your application if you really research before you start buying.

    yep and you also got to factor in what you want to do with the car. you want a daily with more pep than most cars? you want a car thats more twards drag race? auto X? what do you wnat to do with the car. Figure that out then go from there.

    If you're looking for around 300 whp, theres no reason to go insane with the setup. One thing you need to consider is the stock b20 sleeves are not known to be strong at all. You may want to consider re sleeving your block to keep it reliable.

    street legality might be an issue. it's not based on power output ususally. where are you at?

    im in massachusetts the block is sleeved already i was wondering if i just put the turbo kit for a b series vtec from peak boost and pushed like 8-10 psi if that would do damage or if i would be all set and if so would i meet my goal with that kit

    I dont know your emissions laws there. Are you sure first off that it does fall under 'legal'? In cali, you can't turbo a car unless its been approved by the BAR or it's a carb exempt turbo kit which there's only a few of.

    Very nice that your block is sleaved already. Do you know if you have forged pistons? Any info you can provide about the pistons and rods. Stock pistons probably can't handle that much all day long without a really nice tune, but forged should be able to take more than that. I don't have any experiance with your setup but Id speculate 10psi would put you over your 300whp goal.

    I still wouldnt buy a kit. Piece together your own. You'll get better results. It's not hard.

    edits.
    out here in indiana some county's you wouldnt be able to do turbo, period. then some other county's dont care at all and never look at or emissions test your car at all.

    and if you know your compression level too, that's always helpful.

    he only has to pass the sniffer since his car is a 92. should be easy to smog.
