    will hear this i got my 97 civic for 3000 with a jdm b16a and a xs turbo kit. I love the way turbo sounds but i hear that having a turbo on a honda is a lot of resbonsibility cause they can blow the engine really quick. So do u guys think i should just get rid of it and go NA motor cause i also like high revs. So if you guys were me what would you do cuase the turbo kit is only worth about a 1000 bucks so would you sell it and buy more mods for your car or just slap it on.so please help me.

    i wouldnt recommend throwing it away because its a turbo, id recommend throwing it away because its a shitty manifold, a poorly constructed turbo, and substanard parts.

    since its installed and it runs...go to a dyno and hook up a WB....if everything checks out... start saving for a full race kit or a DIY =

    a full race kit to go 13's is just a flat out waste of money. WAY overkill.

    use what you got till it breaks.... and it will.

    I agree with everyone.... I have a XSPower turbo kit on my prelude and I'm having nothing but problems!

    Definitely throw away the XSPower turbo manifold and get a RevHard or something stronger. It will crack... its a piece of junk!
