So lately I've been thinking about turboing my r18. There are a few things I'd like personal opinions/suggestions on. From a little research: Currently a Chinese company made a conventional setup for the r18. It's supposedly making somewhere around 245 whp or so. I didn't read too much about it but I don't think it's available to the public, at least not the US. AJP is also in production, but I read they completed a kit and after a little testing they ended up having issues, so they're kit is on hold for public sale and they're back in the garage resolving those. I believe ProCivic is the only company who've completed a kit that is currently for sale to the public. Here's a video with this kit installed, it seems extremely disappointing, it'd only slightly faster then my LX, looks like the stock SI is still quicker.

I think I started a thread about this years ago but with a different motor. Regardless this is now and is what I've been contemplating.. For those who aren't familiar with what I'm talking abut when I say remote setup. The setup consists of the same parts, only difference is the turbo doesn't hang off of the exhaust manifold but is placed much further back, sometimes right before the muffler. Disadvantages may overrule the advantages......but then again, they may not. Some of my main reasons for doing this way would be: A) Space - there is not much space in the engine bay. B) Less fabrication -The stock exhaust manifold is irregular, if you watched the video I posted (http://hondaswap.com/auto-multi-media/kinda-interesting-r18a1-114866/) or just look in the pictures you can see it's not normal. I need to do some research on fuel management and what system will work with the DBW , also the intake manifold is plastic on these bad boys, so I also have to figure out how much pressure it can take . Let me know what you guys think, opinions ideas. Any suggestions. I'll add more to this later.
