sup guys and gals. new to the honda scene. just pick up a 98 gs-r. my questions are what are other good integra forums and can i boost with the stock motor (heard that it's risky due to the compression).

there are plenty of people boosting their stock motors to 400hp.
just search for a good daily driver turbo kit. drag make a nice one as well as rev.
at all costs stay away for ebay cheep turbo kits. they are garbage and poor quality parts. good luck any questions let me know
btw honda-tech.com is a good site as well as teamintegra.com

The most important thing is to have a good tune and use commonsense. You cannot get away with running some of the ghetto tricks the homemade turbo kits that find their way on 5.0L's use (adj rrfpr's and other nonsense). If you invest in a decent fuel solution and make good friends with an experienced honda tuner the rest of the setup will come easily. I am not doubting what vespar has to say, but if it was my motor on stock internals I would not want to run it at 400whp. If you build your first set-up around 5-7psi and grow into you will be amazed at how different the car feels. But, you gotta pay to play homey, boost can be pricey for a novice.
