Well, I've come to a cross road and needs to make some decisions. So guys please help.

I have $5000cdn read to put into my ride or a new ride. Here are my options:

1) get the F-MAX turbo kit and run 10psi of boost (how many horses that would give me, I don't know)

2) found a used RSX Type S with 19k on it $28k cdn, or

3) found a used 99 Teg Type R with 64k on it, $22k cdn or

4) a prelude 98-01 model.

If I get a new ride, everything I've done to my ride is lost. Trade in for my car is about $17k cdn. I do have an automatic (but if turbo'ed, doesn't really matter).

So what should I do?????

Yeah, I really can't say anything with the #'s posted in canadian :(
Ok, basically. I can afford all four options. So it coems down to getting one of the three new rides or throw a turbo into the old one. I'm pretty sure with the turbo, my Civic will smoke all the other three.

REally? Hmm...

Here is just a follow up question. What's better? Turboing a Civic SOHC, Civic DOHC, Integra or Prelude?
Well, a built SOHC with a turbo can be pretty damn quick.. But then again, a built DOHC can also be fast.. For example, InfamousCivic.. he's got a built DX motor with a DragII (?) kit on it.. That car is insanely fast.. I don't have exact numbers, b/c it's not my ride.. But I would suggest that it runs a 1/4 mile in 12 seconds roughly..

turbo your car at 10psi that thing will smoke the other cars and besides your ride is already phat.

I'm considering swapping the tranny now. Can you elaborate on that? Will the GSR tranny fit onto the D16?

What kind of parts would I need?
Nope, it won't fit..

You'd need an entire GSR swap in order to get that transmission.. D series and B series don't go together.. 2 completely different motors
