My car is slow and I want to make it faster. What should I do? Turbo or engine swap? My D16Y8 has 95,xxx I do all the basic mantinence but I dont know the conditon of the engine or how much longer its going to last because I drive it kinda hard. I have probably taken it to redline about 15 times since I bought the car 2 years ago with 69.xxx miles. I would rather turbo it but someone told me that my mileage was too high to do so and I dont know if the engine will be able to handle it. What do I need to check to see if it can handle turbo? I heard that I could get a compression and leak test to see if the engine is still in good shape. Is that true? Where would I go to get that done? Either way I am going to be spending around $5000.
