your gonna hear alot of people just tell you to go turbo. eitherway is an improvment and sc`s are just as fun for anything except drag racing. i think sc`s and a good suspension make for an extremely fun daily driver if your near any kind of good winding backrounds with minimal traffic. superchargers in my opinion are great for roadcoarse, autocross kinda stuff for its power at the touch of a pedal capability "dont have to spool up" however lack in drag racing on most 4cyl.

one way or another in the long run the supercharger will cost you more to buy complete

parting one will be hard sence they arent as widely used in the honda community. 98% of all used FI d-series parts will be turbo

I agree. The only reason why I went with a SC is because on the weekends I go driving up the canyons. I enjoy going uphill, and to me a SC was my best option, considering that it's easy to install and that it's also Cali friendly (just passed smog last month) and it keeps the engine bay looking OEM.

I bought my SC back in April, right after I bought it from the JR website they didn't have anymore, maybe I got the last one.

well say if i did go with a turbo for price what turbo would you get of a d15 and what price am i looking at. i have around 1000 +or- 500 for this, i dont have to buy everything a once if you think a higher priced turbo kit would be the way to go thats fine i just wont something by next year. also remember that i drive this car about 10 miles on week days and about 200 on the weekends

You need to get your ecu chipped and tuned, yes. But for best reliability you should do that if you go sc too. The FMU that comes with the sc kit isnt the best option for reliability IMO. All it does is to raise the fuel pressure under boost, so your poor injectors will see more than double the pressure they were designed for.

The hardest part is to read up and firgure out how everything works. Once you understand, its not hard at all, and you probably know whats going on if/when something fails. I would never install a turbo (or sc for that matter) on a daily driver without knowing ecxactly what everything does.

There are tons of info in the stickies ont this site, and other honda-sites around, so everything you need to know is right in front of you :)

well i think i just found a full jrsc kit fmu and all it has a 10lb pulley on it so i will have to change that and he only wonts 1100 for it.. so i think i am going that way. O and last weekend i went to some junk yards and it is almost impossible to find a a6 head that is worth fulling with, all of them were tooking apart and only half of the bolts were gone.. plus all im were gone it was like a bunch of honda needed them last week cause i went last week and they were untouched... WTF thats just my luck
