I have a crx with a d16a and I want to go turbo but I don't really know much about the subject. I was wondering if someone could help me out by telling me whats the best ond for my engine while giving me a significant power boost.
Thanks.

Cheap and easy would be the Greddy non-intercooled kit for a '92-95 Civic. Supposedly smog legal and fits on a 4th gen Civic with minor modification. Makes 5.5psi of boost and probably 40hp.

the greddy kit would be great but if you decide to go custom then go with a big t3 turbo....t3super60.

If ya wanna keep ur car modest - get the greddy kit and boost 5.5 - 8 psi - get the intercooler and build ur internals if ya want more horses and boost more. Itz 50 states legal (less hassel thru emissions and by the cops). The HP gains all depends on how much ur boosting and tuning - I dont know the range though.

If ya wanna go nutz with tha turbo - go custom - or the other kits out there like F-Max, Rev Hard, and Drag. I dont know much about these kits except that they are alot more complete than the Greddy - comes with intercooler, BOV, etc.

That question is very hard to answer. Depending on what other mods you have. If you run a bone stock engine with an F-MAX turbo kit at 8 - 9psi you can expect and additional 50 - 75 HP at the wheels. If you have done internal work on the engine and have good fuel management you could go up to 12 - 15 psi and that would get you upwards of 100 - 125 BHP to the wheels

it depends how your motor is built....cause if yhour running high compression pistons, and you boost anything over 5.5-6 psi depending on how high your CR is then say bye bye to your motor....so it all depends.....you can gain about 40-50 hp on 5.5-6 psi...i/c or non-i/c....soo what u wanna doo...
