TURBO KIT for HONDA engine D17 for civic BRAND NEW! on eBay (end time 18-Jan-11 21:44:30 GMT)
do you want me to drink it also??

i will go to the farm, pick up 2 or 3 orange, go home, cut each one in half, squezze it into a glass, add some sugar, stir and then, should i give it to you or drink it myself??

What i want to say is that there so many options that its a must for to read a few things, decide the path to go and then maybe start doing some question.....

OK?

well i want to turbo it, get some performance cams remap, ecu decat ect....
will this godspeed turbo kit work ? is it any good? HONDA CIVIC 01-05 D17 T3 TURBO CHARGER KIT [TCK-011] - $1,400.00 : GodSpeed Project, The Art of Performance
As i said before and as anyone will tell you, for a turbo project you must have money and time. Time is for doing things, this is if you want to do it yourself, or else take it to a shop, pay good $$$, and have the job done. Money is for the all project itself.

If you're going turbo you should decide what's your goal( HP ), and from there start making a list for the must "do's".

As for this turbokit is as i said its all about the money you want to spend and the way to get things done, you can buy an excelent turbo kit and flaw anyway.

For my turbo project i got an ebay kit, it's not even started but on the way, but as this ride will be something like a toy, i'm not really concern if the turbo isnt the best that exist.

For now you should/must decide 2 things: budget / goal

Use the search function man, every single question you asked has already been covered.
X2

I have to say the same, or else it will be new year again and we'll keep going on this conversation.

The search function will be your best friend for now, there goes about 4 years from the 1st time i started thinking of a turbo setup and still have my questions.

You must know "something" before start bombing questions, and not only " i want to go TURBO "

search engine would answer alot of your questions.i know when i did my build i read the shit out of it and watch alot of youtube videos to see what there setups was.

i read some good reveiws on godspeed turbo its but there still ebay turbo kit though.
i would use hondata s300 but theres alot options
i would run no more than 10psi

this probally doesn thelp much but just google it a little everyday and you will figure it out.

Simple, not enough profit. The 7th gen owners are just as poor/cheap as any other Civic group of owners, however there are a lot less of them. When you get down to the numbers game, pretty much any of the 900 billion Civics manufactured between 88-2000 take the same manifold and DP configuration and there are lot more folks who want to boost them than the relatively small number of 7th gen owners and the even smaller number of ones that want to boost and the even smaller number of those that can actually afford it.
