What is the smallest turbo that will support 200whp?
I mean physical size of the turbo. Looking for something that will support 180-200whp, but it needs to be >small<.

Reason? So I can hide it under a heat shield, with ease.

Sleeper and Thieves.
do you have AC??
if not get a side mount and mount it on where the condenser would go and paint it black. that's what me and my dad did on the blue hatch we got and no one knows it's on boost. :bigok:

Link is up but if its for thieves then why worry?
The thing thieves go after is intercoolers and same for sleeper. Because how else will they know its turbo?
Now if your popping hood all the time or blowing off the bov a lot then people will know. Other then that you wont know its turbo.

People connect dots... And I'm paranoid.

They will do what they do. Id invest in a good alarm/kill switches. Ive hear of people stealing 100% stock civics just because it has rims.

But get a good system and it will give them hell and give you time to caught them and open fire on them :D

That intake piping through the airbox is beyond titties... welds are meh, but the idea is awesome! :bigok:

I hear ya on the sleeper and anti-theft aspect; if there is any way to hide what you have, do it. Don't wash the car, no stickers, stick some steelies on it, take the faceplate out always... anything to make it look unattractive to thieving scumdogs.

Same page as you. i.e. High Comp, Small Turbo, Boost of idle. Only need to make 200 BHP. But most of it under 4000 RPM. LOL.

There are some really nice Hitachi Turbos they use on the 600cc small cars in Japan. Ive imported a few. For bike projects. Tempted to try it on the Honda.
The only complication with small turbos is you need to make everything custom. From your IC to pipes.

Gt1752 off a Sabb. I have two right now sitting in the garage. HF manifold and an internal wastegate it held 12-14 to around 6k on the race engine and was still holding power at 7k. Starts spooling instantly. I've been considering putting one on my dd.

What kind of heat shield are you going to use? I'm looking into doing mine sleepy, and also considering painting my FMIC black with some radiator paint.
It will probably end up look like this, with another round shield around the air filter since it'll get pushed to the side to make room for the AC compressor. And the hotside chargepiping will be hidden better. This car belongs to someone on here, just can't remember the name..



I REALLY like this bay. But since I'm keeping AC, I can't put the turbo in the same place.

I would get a 15g. You can barely see mine even with the hood open. My friends that want to see it I have to point down to it and be like, I promise it really is there!
