okay, i know i've been asking a lot of questions about NA mods. i guess what i'm asking is:

what kind of hp can i expect out of a naturally aspirated 97 non-vtec integra for about what it would cost me to get a turbo set up?

if i were to grow power crazy, wouldn't i go turbo eventually anyway and has this happened to a lot of people?

for those who have turbo, what do you and don't you like about turbo?

is it worth it to spend several thousand bucks for a turbo set up?

aren't NA cars more reliable or am i just full of shit?

i've got a lot more questions coming up but i don't want to make everyone get sick of me. thanks!

For a Non Vtec motor on a N/A set up, your gains are'nt that great. You could go with a LS/VTEC but then again you want power. You would be spending quite a bit; my estimation would be around MORE than $5,000 for minimal gains on a N/A. With that same amount or even moremoney you can get more out of your car with a nice Forced Induction system such as a Turbo.
You'll get a lot more power and even have a CUTE little whistling sound off the blow off valve! :D

A turbo engine will always be cheaper than a N/A engine to get the same power out of.

If youre wanting big gains from a b18b then you should save your $ for that turbo. The amount of funds you spend on other N/A performance parts to equal the power from a turbo will exceed the cost of said turbo.:sleep: N/A setup is not for everyone.
