well i would just like to thank you for being absolutely no help on the subject and the don't make a proper turbo for the car because it didn't come stock with a turbo they are all just component parts that are made to work on the car if you would like to be of some help maybe make a suggestion on what turbo you would use.

there are a handful of threads where people are using cummins turbos on v-tec motors. I would like to know why it wont work not just someone telling me it wont.

maybe you need to read up a little more on turbos and what turbo lag exactly is, not to mention displacement

Turbo lag is the time required to change power output in response to a throttle change, noticed as a hesitation or slowed throttle response when accelerating from idle as compared to a naturally aspirated engine. This is due to the time needed for the exhaust system and turbocharger to generate the required boost. Inertia, friction, and compressor load are the primary contributors to turbo lag. Superchargers do not suffer this problem, because the turbine is eliminated due to the compressor being directly powered by the engine.
