Default civic turbo

This seems quite cheap for the whole car considering it has only done 25k and is turbocharged........could probably sell on the car after engine taken out for quite a fair amount considering interior etc???

anyone else think this seems good? I would have this if I had the room as probably could get cheaper even than advertised

I think the marlin would shift with this engine in it

"Type: Standard Car "


Have you looked at the forced induction threads on ? There are loads of 'charged K-series engines over in the 'states - one crazy guy was running a Garrett T35 of some description, on totally stock internals, and getting well over 500 wbhp... the engine did eventually pop, but only when the boost controller failed, and the manifold pressure hit over 40psi.

It seems the k-series engines, even in stock form, are pretty tough.
