    this question does not apply to adding hp...im just wondering in order to have a correct a/f ratio would i have to do head work on my lsvtec?? i know turbos require alot of space(flow area) in order to eliminate backpressure and also will it hurt my top end(high rpms) without headwork? also with head work done will my motor run cooler?

    naw...

    its all in the tuning. less air going in requires less fuel, and thus less power.
    if you do head work and have more air going in, you need more fuel, and thus, you'll make some more power

    well i dont want to say doing headwork on a street driven turbo car is a waste of money but you'd be better spending your money elsewhere first like what pissedoffsol said (tuning). hondata is the shizzle! :worthy:

    hey pissedoffsol- you know your initials are POS right? that have any relation to the sol? :p j/k
