It seems like every week we have a honda guy stop by for a tune with an ebay turbo kit. They cause nothing but problems. Either they don't make any power or they end up costing the customer more than just doing it right the first time.



I will post some examples later.

He's blowing smoke! lol That turbo looks more like a Turbonetics T4. That motor isn't all stock either. lol The fastest recorded stock motor civic was a B18C1 GSR motor in a gutted '91 CRX that went mid 11s on just boost. That Caddy is easily a low 11 or high 10 second car if he's really making 500hp+.
