    Your wanting 600 hp produced from the turbo kit?


    That's one hell of a goal, I'd go with a custom kit..

    you have no idea what you're doing. seriously.

    if you have to ask this question, you will never be able to pull off a build of this nature. no way, no how.

    start reading, stop dreaming.

    your gonna need more then a turbo kit, your need a turbo build for that goal. That means an engine built around the basis of a turbo application.

    Whoa don't expect to be reaching anywhere near 600whp from homemadeturbo.com.

    You will need more than just a turbo kit. As Jeff (UDT) mentioned already if you want your motor to last more than 10 minutes with that kind of power, you will need to build the block to handle that kind of horsepower. Expect to be spending anywhere from $15-$20,000 to reach your 600whp goal. Is this a track car or will this be for steet use? (For the sake of others on the road I hope it's not a street car).

    I think some of my brain dripped onto the floor...


    If you are going to build a 600whp street car, I don't think you understand the magnitude of that. 600 Horsepower streetcars are somthing that shops and tuning houses pour their resources in to make a dream come true. We're talking all custom, big dollar corperate budget type stuff.

    600 horsepower track cars are built by middle-class men in mid-life crisis, and the hick-folk with their 79 TA that they've had since high-school.

    Jump on Honda-Tech and search for Oaks Racing. I want you to guess how long it took them to make that Prelude, and how much money. And it still isn't done. This isn't somthing you do with a tax return because you feel like it. This is a 3+ year engagement for a regular guy. I doubt many of us could even keep a girl that long (they're too expensive anyway).

    Re-evaluate what is feasible.

    If you want 600hp, honda isn't your place to be looking.

    how long do you expect this streetable 600 hp motor to last exactly?

    maybe you should get big block hp figures out of your head and then reconsider a honda...
