Infra3sv K & N air filter. You can get this from O'reillys, Wal-Mart, or anywhere.

microtonal Depending on the brand, type and HP your gonna get from a Turbo, the additional mods to your stock engine will be different.
The best thing to do is talk to a turbo vendor and ask what they recommended you do to your stock engine to accommodate their turbo.
You might also search this forum and see if this has already been discussed.
Good luck on your venture...

shellshock ok so if i do with turbo just the regular its gonna be cheaper right...and what would i have to do to my engine to get it "turbo Ready", i dont think stock engines can handle a turbo

gthang if you want turbo, but don't want the lag, you could always twin-charge the car.

If you don't know what twin-charging is, it's basically a turbo-and-supercharged engine! You get the immense torque gains right from 1,000RPM (200 lbs-ft torque at 1,200 RPM, eg.) This is amazing stuff. Currently Turbo Magazine is twin-charging their project MR-2.

microtonal 65mm TB = Larger TB over stock 52mm. Better throttle response and about 1-2WHP.

Turbo = Uses exhaust to drive turbine. Small time lag before it kicks in.

Supercharger = Moderate HP gains. Belt driven. Immediate response - no lag.

Check out this Supercharger vs. Turbo article.

Iceberg im sorry i dont know this but what will the 65mm tb do for your car?
11-02-2003 02:04 AM
shellshock ichiban intake or something like that...also..im gonna probly do and ichiban exhaust on it just for matching reason's

How would i go about putting a supercharger or a turbocharger or just a turbo and witch would work the best..aslo its all stock right now besides the intake and headers if i can ever get them on
