turbo or all motor or supercharger?

i got a '94 hatch and im getting a b18c1. not sure which way to go.
im not too familar with all the different turbo brands if i decide to go turbo. im not sure what my goal is, but i want a reliable car that can be reasonably maintainable and that is pretty quick. Can anyone tell me some specs on different turbo kits? maybe some prices too???

th B20 VTEC is a frankenstein motor, B16 VTEC head worked onto a B20 nonVTEC block. if you get a stroker kit from Crower, it alone will expand into 2.1L, longer stroke, more torque & low end power.

if going all motor there are many routes to go, like Crower parts, www.crower.com ...if you want predictable & sustained power, get a supercharger www.jacksonracing.com , but wana go turbo, go HKS www.hksusa.com or GReddy www.greddy.com

a good beginner turbo kit out is the greddy kit and theat goes for around $1,600, butn this kit doesn't really produce a lot of boost. your car can be as reliable as you want just as long as you check everything and see if anything is wrong or not working and for the maitnence part well if you are choosing turbo then i don't think that there is a way to get around the maitnence part.

Acutally, the Greddy kit can produce enough boost to wipe your engine out completely. Any turbo can do that. Tell him about the differences between the Greddy and other kits.
1. The Greddy is smaller and spools up faster (provides boost faster).
2. The larger turbos spool later, but net bigger power gains in the top end.
3. Less engine mods have to be done to support the Greddy kit compared to the large turbos.
4. The Greddy is considerably less than almost every turbo kit on the market right now.
5. You can get almost everything the FMAX kit offers with their turbo for the Greddy, plus exhaust and gauges and save over $400.

Hope that helps you out.

when done correctly...you're going to get more reliability and possibly more power if you go "all engine" when done correctly and EXPENSIVELY...but you have to admit...there's nothing like the sound of a turbo spooling up.....aaahhhhh....

Turbo: best is probably revhard turbos. if u want street legal then go with greddy next to best is drag 3. u might want to build your engine up for a turbo If u want to run high boost.
