    I have a 93 del sol (s model) with a d15 pushing 100hp tops. I want to get more power out of the car (hopefully around 60hp more) without swapping the engine and after browsing around on the internet a little i believe a turbo might be right for it. When it comes to turbos I know almost nothing. I found a few T3/T4 turbo kits on ebay from $800-1000. Is one of these what i want or is there a better option? any advice would help greatly. thanks.

    As long as you get one for a 92-95 Civic you should be fine. But just like most kits, it won't bolt up perfectly without some modification.
