    I want to turbo my 95 Civic DX Coupe it is all stock with D15B7. I want to get in the 200 HP range. What do I need to do to the motor to be able to add a Turbo without having to worry about tearing it up. About how much would this cost.

    Thanks,
    Jake

    Buy the Edelbrock kit- that's the easiest/cheapest way to get to a nice turbo setup on your D. You're not going to be able to hit 200hp at the crank (much less the wheels) without some extra tweaking though.
