    8-15 pounds wow so you are going to build your engine then I see, is that why you want the cheap kit? to save money for the rebuild?

    Honda motors in stock form can't reliably handle more then 9 pounds, any more that that you run the risk of blowing a rod in the least. Honda rods are toothpicks if you want to push more than 7-9 pounds you should consider upgrading internals and valve train.

    You know what that might be a little off for a SOHC, 8 might work fine I'm running a DOHC, but you might want to call around and ask some turbo manufacturers to be sure.

    To find cheap kits just google your engine # turbo kits I found alot in the under 500 range. I hope this helps.

    Default Want to turbo my

    Ebay turbo kits?

    I had one on my 254k mile ls motor in my eg. The turbo was fine, rfl type bov leaked, replaced with real, wastegate never tried it, used a turbonetics I had laying around, but it always worked fine for like 3 years and 40k miles.

    If you have a beater you want to make quick/fun for cheap, go for it. Otherwise, nahhh
