    I have a 97 civic coupe (d16y8 engine with 157800 miles) and I am planning a swap but I also want to turbo my current engine until I do the swap. After looking at aftermarket turbo kits, Ive realized that they're expensive as hell, so I wanted to do a junkyard set up of some kind. I only want to run 6-9 lbs of boost so I thought I could just scrape together some junkyard gold and make my own kit for a lot less money.

    I need to know everything, and I mean everything you need in order to make a successfull junkyard kit.

    also if this is bad logic let me know, because althought it made sense in my head, it may not be the best idea? :p

    thanks a lot

    save your money for the swap. a junkyard turbo build will run you about 500. thats an extra 500 to the swap.

    and, some of the parts, like the manifold, exhaust, etc won't be able to be used on the swap motor.
