    Lmao, where's the fire? Got enough exclamation points in your thread title?

    You're gonna have to narrow it down.

    1. How much money do you have RIGHT now to spend on this project?
    2. Are you doing the work yourself or having a shop do all the work for you?
    3. What kind of horsepower gains are you looking for?
    4. Have you even bothered to browse through the forums before asking your question that way you could ask a more informed question that way people here know what you're looking for that way they can better help you?
    5. Try that little search bar thingy up top. It's extremely useful. Or go to the main page on the forums and navigate to the Turbo forum.

    Not trying to be an asshole, but turboing a B18c1 has been done often and also documented often. Just see if you can find a thread that replicates what you're trying to accomplish. That way you know what you're getting yourself into, how much it'll cost, and you'll even know what questions you need to ask so we can help you, help yourself.

    This is my third post asking questions about turbo'ing my car. No one gives me direct answers. I've asked what I can do to make my car faster and people have told me that a turbo is the way to go. Really not sure what you're trying to say in the red text. My motor has about 50k miles on it currently, I do not know if I need to rebuild it or not.

    Here a new paragraph would have been helpful since you are finally answering my questions. I have about $1k to put into it currently, and I make $250 a week.

    You could have also used a new paragraph here just to make your post easier to read. I will be doing whatever work I can, but I will take it into a shop if I have to.


    Please post in this format from now on, it'll keep you from getting ridiculed later on.

    Next time I ask you questions, answer them first. Preferably according to the numbering I gave you.

    If this is the only reason you want to turbo your car, it's a fucking stupid reason to. Having a higher horsepower car is lots of fun, but it is also a responsibility. You don't need to go and wreck it after you get it turbo'd because you were driving like an asshole. I honestly don't give a fuck if you do, but it makes the rest of us look bad.

    I want to be helpful to you, I really do. But please just give the rest of us some common courtesy when asking questions. It makes us much more eager to answer your questions when you act like you comprehend what we're telling us. I'm sure you're more than capable of cobbling together a legible sentence and properly breaking down your thoughts into paragraphs so please do it.

    Dude track times..? o_O chill out i dont do it illegaly i got to the drag strip right down the street from my house. but yeah i am i just need to know how to get 300 whp from a turbo built rather then going extremley pricy and building a complete N/A car.
    But in the red i was saying no one gives me any info to look up. All they say is turbo it...? well like i know i would need like the fuel pump, injectors, fuel reg and rail. but anything else to get it turbo ready? could i use my stock chip and just get it retuned for the turbo or should i go out and spend the money on a hondata? i just need to know how to get to my 300 whp goal

    Very few people will spoon feed the answers to you. I wrote the thread above to answer introductory questions such as the ones you have, and also to give you a basic knowledge of what a turbocharger actually does. The better you understand, the less reliant you will be on other people to do things for you.

    I built my car by myself with the help of the internet. I didn't know anything about turbos when I became interested in them (evidence is 40-50 pages back in my build thread) and you can see my progression in knowledge throughout the thread. Sure I asked a few questions on here, but I didn't come in here asking for a specific parts list to do one thing or another, because quite honestly there isn't a set parts list. There's a general guide above that'll certainly get you pointed in the right direction. If you can't read that, then I am simply done trying to help you because you obviously do not want to be helped.

    READ THIS: http://hondaswap.com/forced-induction/intro-turbocharging-230546/
    and the PDF in this thread: http://hondaswap.com/turbo-information/basic-turbo-guide-523036/

    Edit: Chad, your link 404'd for some reason so I added it here.
