Supercharge? Or Turbo?
Hey guys I want to do a mod to my engine but I'm not sure what to do I have
a 1.5 sohc D-series engine and I was wondering if I would be better off super
charging it or with a turbo? I don't know a whole lot about cars so I thought
I'd be better off asking a forum so any help is welcomed oh and my car is a
1990 Honda Civic Hatch Dx
You are only going to get so much out of a 1.5L. A Turbo kit will run you close to $700... not installed. Then what? Tax the transmission on a 1990 with that more power? I couldn't even find a supercharger positive pressure induction available for that engine.
when do you want the extra power is the first thing....
but what do i know...in a NOS guy
Im just trying to get as much out of my engine as possible it's my project car and I'm not really trying to invest a whole lot of money into my car besides building up the engine and a few appearance changes , I want to keep it stock as much as possible so when people ask what engine I got in it I can say just a 1.5 and then see the surprised look on their face because of the fact that I'm getting so much out of so little
Go get the bolt ons from autozone and you can only get as much power as you let out so maybe exhaust and headers will add a little bit of horsepower! Not ALOT but but it does help also chipped ecu? Bigger intake manifold? Idk d series arent really made to be fast unless you tune them right! And if your going to turbo your car save up for some new pistons and rods and valves that could handle the turbos pressure! Also transimision that can withstand the pressure as well such as a d16y8 but honestly bro!! If you want power just keep saving and get B series or h22
