    if you want to turbo dont even waste your time on i/h/e. ls is a good way to go. lots of other routes you can go after 200hp gets old

    you say " ..... crx Si in mint ". Hmmmm.... replace the water pump and timing belt ( if not already done) then boost what you have. Put a kit together yourself and 200+ is easy on only $600. Id in vest in a healthy clutch first, atleast a higher capacity pressure plate. If you insist on swapping though, finding a recked teggy and yanking everything you need from it ( and sending me the rear disc conversion for my hatch [​IMG] ) could be done for under $600 and will be a sweet canidate later on in own3rship for NA or boost.

    i was aklso thinking of this (let me know how this setup will be performance wise) i have the d16a6 setup in my si...i was going to put all new seals,bearings,gaskets, and then drop brand new d16y8 pistons with z6 rods and new piston rings while keeping the stock head and block then boosting it....how will this whole setup perform and will it be reliable on low boost for everyday driving [​IMG]

    HOLY SUPER MEGA FOLGERS CAN TIP!!!!!!! [​IMG] j/k it looks aight....friend of mine had a 5" rolled brospeed tip on a shitty ass HF rex. It wasn't fast but people thought the exhuast was some form of anti-aircraft weapon. Any way Ive got a build up going on similar to Blancos and it sounds like your goal is within reach if you use this similar setup. good luck.

    actually my bro has one on a 89 crx, with a gsr swap, and it sounds like shit. just my 2 cents. its really raspy and hi pitched.

    as far as a turbo kit, a friend of mine has a $500 slapped together kit on a ls/vtec in a eg hatch, and hes doing 260 to the wheels @ 8-9 pounds. he just did 13.4 at englishtown on some shitty tires. and stock fuel. His car had so much potential. he just needs to get injectors and a fuel pump.

    hes running a borg/warner turbo off of a cummings deisel truck. he got it for like 50 bucks from a junk yard.
