Hey, i'm looking to buy/install a turbo late this summer, and i was just wondering what u guys think is the most cost efficient, best performing, or just best all around turbo for a 98 integra gs... :cool: btw, i was planning to spend about 4g's on it..(not including labor)

I see most Integras with Greddy turbo. So I'm assuming that Greddy is the best bang for buck. But I'm not sure. :???:

Turbonetics should be the turbo u use.

I want a turbo that i can run over 14psi, and that won't require maintance on the actual turbo itself for a while, tell me what u think of this turbo kit from DRAG http://www.overboost.com/obs/product.asp?pid=20311
It looks straight to me, someone from my local performance shop pointed me at that 1, and the greddy bolt on

I'm really lookin for a response from turbogsr on this one....

I dont know about that one you posted, btu from what I have heard, FMax is the best one you can buy, as far as basic turbo kits go. I have a friend who has had both the Fmax and the Drag kits on his Civic, and he is much happier with the FMax kit.

The greddy wont produce as much power stock and the FMax, Rev Hard etc for a couple reasons. These may be wrong because I am far from a turbo expert but I will try anyway. It comes with a smaller turbo which means quicker spool up but a smaller top HP level. It doesnt come with a FMIC, which mean that it runs hotter, which causes it to lose more HP. Hope that info is right and I hope it helps.

basically, greddy is the only one that will pass emissions.

consequently, its the crappiest one.

but hey, u'll be legal.......... :lol:

i had the same question but.. i'v read on BOTH Drag and Fmax trubo kits for the TEGS. i think i'm going to go with FMAX yes it has a bigger turbo than GREDDY but u can tune your TEG to handel 20+ lbs of boost.. where the GREDDY trubo MAX will handel 25lb of boost MAX.. the Fmax and drag both can get up to 35lb of boost. withs is OVER or close to 100hp to the wheels! if u want to spend more than 4 i would go with the FMAX and get.. TRUBO CAM, PISTONS, RODS, valves/springs, (all trubo spec) i'm looking to spend a little over 5g's for the set up.. !!
this kid in my area has a turbo chaged delsol with a greddy kit(16g trubo) and its looks clean(install) but he ran low 15's!! WITH TRUBO!! i want to run 12's wit my trubo and motor setup!! also with any kit.. doubble check all parts.. to make sure u get close to or the best.. this is your motor your talking about!! don't want to cook it too fast.. build it right the first time and save your self.. 3500(ave cost for motor)!! my choice.. FMAX and if its too much then drag- with the drag.. swap the WASTEGATE get the teal!

http://www.revhard.com gives you the dealers and info on the kit itself.

thanks, guys, but unfortunatly, i'm probably going to end up with a greddy peice o crap kit that only adds like 70 hp to the wheels, but i don't live out west in cali where performance shops are everywhere, and willing to order different kits from companies they don't usually deal with(since rev hard only sells to authorized rev hard dealers). I'm also gunna ask more about that drag turbo kit, I WANT OVER 300 HP TO MY WHEELS DAMNIT. heh, thanks, i'll post pics of whichever turbo i decide, and graphs of dyno runs :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:

Well if you can yeah as most people in the forum have said Fmax is indeed the best, and i wouldnt run the kit at more than 7 or 8 PSI on stock internals, because your motor might not last long, and the greddy kit is OKAY, but yeah it is pretty weak on the dyno charts, but you'll still whup on 90 - 95% of the imports

The Rev Hard Stage2C gives you 120+ hp and 285 torque...thats great if you ask me, there a bit expensive, but it's worth it..itd be nice as hell to have there stage 3 in...this is the one i plan to get...push alot of boost...(with a rebuilt engine of course) :grin:

how much can a turbo shorten the life of your motor?

05-08-2002, 10:37 PM
well if you get out of hand you wont even hit 2nd gear, the motor isnt meant to hold that ammount of pressure, if you absoloutely want to run 15PSI of boost you're gonna need some new pistons/rods and a block guard so think twice before you go ahead, and the drag kit is the cheap turbo way to go, you need to fabricate (custom adjust) piping to fit and some other things, Fmax is the best kit to buy, the Revhard is very good too, its a nasty kit ( in a good way ) that will push some great HP for a decent tag price, but again if you want your cars motor to last only run 7PSI or so, because it will blow it up sooner or later.

GReddy sucks but as stated earlier itll pass emissions. but if you want horsepower then just put one together yourself. get garrett t3 ive got a .60 ar but i would reccomend a .42 ar if you dont have a lot of mods. and this setup can be accomplished with a little over a grand. maybe right under 2k depends on how lucky you get with all of the other parts.

Your not gonna see anywhere NEAR 300whp with ANY bolt on turbo kit without alot of work...I have over 300whp at 10psi but i have a sick set-up....you'll be around 200whp at 8psi

i have a drag turbo kit.

Good and very clean kit. If you are getting it for the integra, you can get up to 250 hp with it. If tuned correctly, it comes with everything you need, except a fuel management system and injectors.
