SHOULD I PUT A TUBRO KIT ON MY 1.5 IN A CIVIC HATCH. I PLAN ON KEEPING THE MOTOR FOR A WHILE AND EVENTUALLY CHANGING TO A B16. I WAS TOLD THAT IF I BUY THE KIT I CAN USE IT ON THE 1.5 AND THEN REPLACE A FEW PARTS TO USE ON THE B16.

u can turbo ur anthing if u want to. u will need to find all the right lines, piping, etc, but yes u cna turbo ur 1.5. also about the b16 turbo idea: you will most likely be able to use the same turbo for that engine and like u said, u will need to change parts over to fit the b16.

not gonna be safe boosting over 4 or 5 psi on the 1.5. i would just save for the b16. and if you switch the turbo over from the d15 to the b16, the main item change needed would be the exhaust manifold and most of the wires would be reusable.

won't really make sense to spend your money on a turbo now if you're just going to swap the motor out later. you can get the motor faster if you don't waste your money now.
