Depends on what kit you end up with... It'll need tuned so that's something you'll have to look into as well

I'm hoping you've already planned or have upgraded and tuned your exhaust, headers, and intake as well.

I dunno man, he didn't mention anything about it and said he was new to it all. A lot of noobs would just think, "I can put on a turbo and go zoom!"

But obviously all of that would have to be changed anyway and most kits will even come with all that... However I do know what you arr saying he may not have known...

like i said though since im new im not going to just buy something and try and put it in and hope it works. Thats like buying a 10000 watt subwoofer and putting it in your trunk and wonder why it isnt working lol. i know a guy that can do it for me, so i dont get caught with a blown up car. lol

Psh, WHO makes a 10000 watt sub? That doesn't even make sense.

look honda or civic forums are where this question is better asked.. find someone local that has done it.. turbo'ed civics are everywhere.. find where they did and if its reputable.. start getting prices and lists of stuff you need..

Please do your research before asking this question. 1) Putting 400whp to a FWD car is pretty stupid. 2) You say money is no object, so why dont you start with a better platform? 3) If you are going turbo on a Civic, go custom. Greddy kit is reliable, but doesn't add a lot of power. You are going to want to sleeve the block, block guard, HG, studs etc etc to do it "right" the first time.

Nothing like rebuilding a turbo every 50-60k. Good times then take into account you will be using stock factory internals so yea pump that boost up. If u can not afford to forge the internals then leave it alone before you shot a rod threw ur block.

I have a simpler solution to get the same outcome. Just buy some of this :

and some of this :

In the end you have a slow riced out car either way, but my method is cheaper. Thank me later.
