Pretty dam long. i abused the piss out of it, the turbo was still good. Had no play what so ever. i got rid of the car and the car is still boosted now. honestly i don't see anything wrong with the eBay turbo/kits. Everybody has different experience with it. the only thing that went wrong was the manifold. the ram horn style manifold cracked on me about 2 months down the road. so i bought a cast iron one.

I don't wanna be a party pooper, but looking at the list of cars in your sig... even with a turbocharger you're not going to be happy with that B16. Just my humble opinion shrug.

However... you can USUALLY reasonably expect to make 240-260 on 7psi with that motor though (just depends) has been my experience. Usually in the 150-160 torque range. Maybe thats what you're looking for after all, I don't know.

I have a completely stock b16 that's turbo'd no numbers yet but its street tuned and it pulls decent for what it is. I defiantly do not have an eBay kit though... I'm on 12lbs and it loves it.

installed godspeed on a 01 civic and nothing fit right. took massive amounts off the bumper to get the ic and pipes to fit.

what's the deal with the car........hate it? Love it? Would cry your eyes out if it blew up?
Long term.....I would buy a good bolt on kit.....but those can run $3K easily. If the motor and money is expendable...then buy cheap shit and have some fun.

just remember, one thing leads to another and before you know your dropping real coin on it.

just to comment on the guy with the ebay stuff.....sometimes you do get lucky and the parts work and sometimes they don't. I think of ebay like a casino, I only take in what I'm willing to loose.

$200 bucks for turbo, would take that chance all day.

modifying it to fit around my bumper wont be a problem at all, an i bought the car as pretty much to drive while finishin up some things on my eclipse, an now i still got the car an its slow as shit, an i thought a cheap turbo set up on low boost might do the trick

Itís junk shit. Buy good parts to support your vendors. Why would you want to make your dd unreliable and still slow? I do agree, there are a select few parts that you canít mess up that you can get on ebay.
