Default Nitrous or turbo?

Im kinda back and forth over this issue, I have jdm d15b and Im wanting to up the power a tid bit, say 200 or 220whp.....anyways, I have a zex kit that I could run right now with say a 50 or 75 shot and be decently quick and reliable, I know nitrous pretty well. And then a friend of mine, has a turbo kit that he's offered to sell me with a t28 turbo and has been tuned to 200whp on his car, same motor. He's including everything with it for $1000. I would appreciate some thoughts and opinions on this. Also I can usually only get online when Im at class at night, so forgive me if I dont respond quickly. Thanks.

understand......but Ive also known turbo motors on anything to be a little finicky, a lot of times its just something small that makes it not run right or a little rough which would make me afraid to get into it.....Ive just always had good luck with nitrous, its just reliable when used properly and I live in oklahoma so bottle pressure usually isnt an issue, I always use a heater.

you already have nitrous and claim to have experience with it yet you don't understand that what you have is more than capable to satisfy your needs from what i gather from your goals. i say you save your money for bottle refills and slicks and actually learn from what you got.

oh shit reading owns me though its a d15b hmmm im not sure how decent the rods are on those compared to the non vtec d15b's if there as good as the d16 rods carry on with what i said. i just feel its pointless to go turbo when u already have a nitrous kits and u can use the 1k on what you already have think bro.

Arent D15b motors supposed to have some of the strongest rods amongst the Ds'? Thats what I have come up with at least.

D15B are suppose to have the same rod as a d16z6 but with a way better rod ratio, this mean the rod have less angle and less stroke to support. So the rod should support more power in a d15b than a d16z6!

With 1000 buck I'd look into a nitrous pump and a good scale, that way you''ll buy your nitrous by big cylinder and pay way less by refill....and you can refill other people bottle too $$$
...the total will cost a little more than a 1000...but will pay for itself with a couple of good customer
