    Turbo'ing a 200k motor can be done... but its probably a good idea to rebuild it. It really all depends on how it was treated it's whole life. I personally wouldn't do it.

    I understand you're 18 and you have that bite for power... but you also need a car to get to school/work/etc. You will have a lot of downtime during the rebuilding processes, turboing process, and tuning process.

    I know it goes against everything this site stands for, but i wouldn't recommend you doing it. save the couple thousand it's going to cost you for a turbo set up for a new car. your car won't last you forever :)

    i agree on that unless you got alot of money floating around and hours upon hours its best to leave it unboosted..... more power = more problems and more money if you don't know have to do the work yourself

    absolutely. if the body/chassis is in good shape, swapping in an h22 is likely the smarter idea. It will still take some time and money, but in the long run, you'll have a newer motor in the car that will be as relabile as stock more or less.

    if the body is toast, i don't recommend dumping a dime in the thing as you'll never see it back again.

    I don't think you need mounts, use your stock ones.

    You'll need to do some minor wiring and I think thats about it.

    you can buy just the motor.. and every thing should mount up the same...... jdm h22a is the brightest idea for you. the most power for your penny with reliability too..
    also nothing is wrong with ebay motors just check your feed back on ppl my buddy bought a type R and it runs like a champ
    he got it from J HOT IMPORT they are in denton, TX ... I drove by there to check it out (i live in utah)and they seem like a very legit buissness
    check there site and you can find it cheaper on ebay prob. JHOT Imports

    h22 will have shorter gears than the f22 if you plan to drive and get good gas mileage go wit the f22 if you want it .......but thats only if you get the h22 wit a trans then you got a choice if you don't f22 will be fine
