Turbo Kits ´91 2.0 16v

Postby dieseldragon » Sun May 31, 2009 7:57 am

I have been looking into turboing my Prelude. Anyone seen these kits before or used one? They seem to be too cheap.. maybe that should tell me something!

600$ for a kit that has everything seems too good to be true

Does seem too good to be true. May be poor quality.

If you're looking to turbo your Prelude, you'll also need to be aware that the flanges on that turbo manifold won't mate up with your head. Our cylinder heads are not the same ones as the ones on the B16 and B18 engines.

Is there an off the shelf kit for a 2.0? I am new to Preludes, but not messing with engines and tuning.. In fact the prelude I have bought is the first Jap car I have ever owned (owned 30+ cars). I love the handling and the subtle styling, but the car could do with at least another 70-80 bhp, I think the lack of power is the only thing that shows its age.

That is pretty cheap. However, its not always the parts themselves that you need to worry about. The most important thing would be the tuning and the ecu. I assume this doesn't come with anything remotely close to something you would want to run on your car for reliability. You'd need to get a Hondata system, or EMS or something like that to get your car tuned.
