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

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
