is the turbo engine higher compression?... also what do you mean by better? gas mileage? performance? maintenance?... gotta specify

eh, ive got a turbo engine, performance wise, its alot better, maintenance wise, the car is only at 104k and i already dropped almost 6k into it

The only turbo gc motors came in the jdm models, so you would need to import one complete w/ a wiring harness to make anything work. Also, turbo motors almost always have lower compression than N/A But yeah, the ej207 is an awesome motor, but the holy grail is the ej22g, and those are about as common as bottled unicorn farts
