Hello,
I have a D17A2 in my 2003 Honda Civic EX. I want to push my car to 300+ hp. It comes tock with about 137 Hp. I want to put a turbo on it. I was wondering what a good turbo to put on would be t28,t3/t4,t25? What kind of mods you have to do? (fuel, crank, air, ECU?) I have been a fan of imports for a long time and just recently (2 months) bought my first one. Hoping someone here can help me out as I am very new to all this...

I was guna boost my civic...then I realized how much upkeep a turbo was. But im pretty sure your fuel and spark will be good for up to 300hp...if nothin else you could always pick up a new fuel pump

My d17 was my first boosted motor and It was a very good learning experience. I strongly suggest getting hondata's kpro. It is around $1000 but well worth it, trust me. Unless of course you're this guy^^^lol. If you're having any issues, this is definitely the place to be. ;)

Well, if you attached it to a crane and hit someone with it at just about full arc, that would be the best way to get the full amount amount of power out of a D17.

If you're not going to do that, then don't fuck with it. Boost is the only way to make power out of a D17 and all you NA guys can kiss my ass because you know its true. Leave the engine alone and get the suspension setup as you will have more fun with it that way. Run just the front Energy Suspension motor mount insert (cost $25) to get rid of your wheel hop, dump it down about 1.5inches on a decent spring/strut combo, leave the camber alone and run an RSX rear sway and leave the front sway alone.

Notice I did not say anything about strut bars.
