    i hate that I don't know anyone who is into cars as much as i am atleast not into Hondas.
    I have a friend with a sick supercharged xrunner truck and he got me into all this so i can work on my car like i have always wanted. But being the only car I have and being broke I'm scared of messing with it but I will anyway to calm my soul.

    So anyway, I've been looking around and i'm finding out that it's not such a good idea to turbo a vtech engine apparently because both the vtech system and a turbo add compression and so would not work well with each other.
    So I thought I should bring it up since i see people trying to go vtech and so I can learn from what you more knowledgeable people know.

    Actually, boost and VTEC work great together.

    Welcome to HondaSwap by the way... and I doubt that you can't find anyone around Austin that's into Hondas as much as you are, especially if you call VTEC "vtech."

    Yea I dont know where you got that vtec and turbo dont mix. I think just about everyone on here that has turbo also has a vtec engine.

    yes they do work great together if you have a good tune if not they suck ass lol. from what i have been told from around here hondas are huge in bossier. austin does suck you never see that many hondas/acuras running around just a bunch of rich people that think there shit is fast.

    by chance do you drive a 92-95 red civic coupe with black rims?

    Boost needs a good tune period. If you have boost and a good tune with vtec then your car will be fast(er) and reliable. If you have a non vtec and boost without a good tune then it will be just as bad as vtec with no tune.

    On clubeg6.com the general tone is that VTEC and boost hate each other. But, then again thats not the only piece of bad info on that site. :)
