    I try not to get worked up by Hondas. If I wanted one of the the most unreliable, notoriously riced out, dime a dozen cars on the planet, I'd buy a Honda and make it fast too. My roommate has a civic he turbo'd and has gone through 3 motors in 3 months now...

    WallasX has a pretty serious URD supercharger setup for sale right now. A turbo will be alot of time and money. The URD kits are real nice and his setup was making over 400 at the wheels. And the URD kits are reliable.

    What size inlet is the turbine housing? T25, T3, T4, or Vband? Which turbo is it? Gt28, Gt32, Gt35?

    What is the A/R on the inlet to the turbine?

    Does it need to be rebuilt? Even if it does, you still got one hell of a deal on the turbo.

    Judging how close the bolt holes are on the narrow edge, it looks closer in size to a T3 to me. I think i have a pic of my turbine inlet flangw on here. I will see it i can find it to compare. Mine is a T4.

    Here is a good picture. The hole spacing is farther apart.

    Those are both T4.

    I would NOT use that turbo UNTIL it gets rebuilt! That thing looks like it will fall apart as soon as it spins, not to mention all the crap that is already floating around inside the inlet/outlet sides. Hate to see u slap that on and blow the motor up!
