Bad idea to turbo?

I got a 97 sh with 205,000 but it is still strong. Would it be a very bad idea to turbo it, would just ruin my motor. How much would 7psi give me?

Re: Bad idea to turbo?

ok man please take no offense...your 16 you obviously dont know that much about what your asking. You made one thread and questions got answered..Swap or Rebuild for a new guy did you do what was asked of in those questions? im assuming not, because you would not of made this thread. Putting a turbo on a honda H22a is not something to be done by a novice. I have read on this forum for over a year and i still would not attempt it. Its very feasible you just need to know what you are doing and what you ARE doing means to your engine and you. Read this! PLEASE So, you wanna go turbo, huh? after that read alot more go to Honda | Acura Research, Reviews, Performance Parts, Owners - Honda-Tech.com and read there stuff...there is alot more places to read on a turbo H22a. This will cost alot of money to do! ok...and ALOT more money if you do it WRONG! Research it!

well i am a 16 year old, but i know alot more than most 16 year olds. I have been researching this stuff since i was 14 and didnt even have a car. I just wanted peoples opinions, and what i will probably do is get a new block this summer and make sure everything is running right and in tip top shape. My friends brother is a mechanic and has put turbos in cars before and i know he would help me with whatever i need. I would not, repeat WOULD NOT do this stuff without researching the he** out of it and i would never do it by myself. i appreciate the input though lol

Re: Bad idea to turbo?

like i said in the other thread. do a compression test. its all about the tune too and the size of the turbo. 7 psi means absolutely nothing when you dont give out the size of a turbo

turboing a motor with 205,000 miles is like f*cking a girl and then her man walks in. it is going to end in nothing but disaster.

That's the best sh!t I've heard all day lol. In all seriousness tho...no way. For starters if ur going to be turboing anything it should be done right the 1st time not half-assed. Second off the h22 frmc sleeves suck for boost to begin with let alone a motor having 205,xxx on it. Basically to be "safe" turboing ur motor ud have to almost if not actually entirely rebuild it. Overhauled block forged internals reworked valve train. Its just not worth it. Save ur money n invest in somethin better. If ur really serious about boost I'd reccomend researchin the G22 build.just my .02. Good luck

Re: Bad idea to turbo?

i'd build it first.
I have a JDM Type S H22A from Japan im building. I'm only gonna run 7lbs with forged internals and cast iron rigs because Chromoly is sh!t. but to make sure everything is tuned like i was running say 15lbs of boost im investing in a $1,500 AEM computer. (im going with the T3/T4 turbo prob.)

Re: Bad idea to turbo?

alright well im gonna have to agree with the rest of the guys here and say ud be an idiot to boost a car with that many miles just do wat u asked on ur other thread if u wanna boost rebuild your motor first otherwise ur gonna start breaking **** whether its done right or not, the motor u have alone without forged internals could not handle boost for long wit the mileage u have on it, 2nd if u have functional atts and dont wanna keep it rip it out if ur looking to go turbo. if u wanna keep atts i suggest u do a jackson supercharger they are actually better despite others opinions and keep atts functional as long as its under 250hp and u can ask akapreludesh himself who won lude of the year 09 he did it and his car is beyond awsome..3rd no offense but all the researching u do doesnt replace actual hands on work, i mean yea its always good to learn by reading and watchin but wen u get older ull see urself doing things differently especially with a car and how u do it if u do it on ur own..take advice from the older guys, the years of experience they have on u alone is something is something u should take into consideration, goodluck

no offense bro, im 28 and know a lot more than another 28 when it comes to honda, some guys do turbo h22a but you could say its not a honda engine anymore because the whole guts of that engine is changed
thats doing the proper but most expenive way of forced induction

some guys then just bolt on turbos, which been honest blows engines
honda spend 100m a year researching their cars and engines, you think if they thought a turbo was a good idea, they would sell a turbo car

the reason why its a bad idea is simple

1. the engine has a lot of mileadge and wear on it
2. you want to bolt on a turbo
3. your young and listening to other idiots

my advise, leave the car alone, if you want turbo, buy something turrbo

Re: Bad idea to turbo?

Contrary to the above post, many people (on this forum, on other forums, in many countries around the world) have turbocharged high(er) milage H22As with no dramas. It is generally accepted that the stock internals can handle 7psi with no dramas and deliver good power and reliability. However good power and reliability costs. It's the old triangle saying - you can pick any two of the following three points - cheap, fast, reliable.

I've also heard of people boosting H22s without rebuilding them. This is brave, but not necessarily stupid. If you do a compression test first, as well as a general health check and find out that the engine is running and sealing well, no leaks, et al. there probably won't be any problems. And realistically, you're probably going to need to rebuild the engine eventually anyway, it always happens, a little boost becomes a lot of boost, and the need for more power ensues.

However I tend to agree with the above post on one single point: if you want a turbo car, then buy a turbo car. For my money, genuinely fast cars are readily accessable and depending on what you want, very affordable. But the joy of driving a high powered Prelude is awesome; especially since most people don't see them as being fast cars.

This is possibly the most hypocritical thing I have read on this forum this year. By your own admission, Honda spent a bunch of money on the R&D before selling the car, then jonnybuts comes along and says "I'm going to make it better by dropping in a JDM engine, aftermarket header, ditching the cat converter and adding braces to the strut towers!"

Re: Bad idea to turbo?

Well turbo ing the 205K Lude might be a nice learning curve for him, you got to start somewhere. If you are only going to run it at 7psi then I would say no it wouldn't hurt it I don't think as long as your sure its up on all cylinders and in atleast good mechanical running condition, but are you sure it is? Have you done the ground work.

But everyone on here knows that once you get 7psi you'll want to go bigger, any way you look at it its going to cost you money so I would say go ahead and turbo it and start learning. I was going to do mine last year or so ago, but I decidede that I know that I will want to boost it up when needed so hince a nice build would defintely need to be done.

Ive also heard that people turbo these without lowering the compression ratio and still have that thing boost up there pretty good but its all about the tuning then. And that stuff is not cheap, plus its an on going maintenance thing with your engine it will always have to be in top running order.

Re: Bad idea to turbo?

ya man idk.I would def built up the motor first and like everyone said you have to research the sh!t out of this and commit a ton of cash and resources(which if you are 16 idk how you have that much money to blow like 6 to 8 grand to built the motor and a decent turbo kit and tune).and you have to find a shop that knows what they are doing and get the car tuned as soon as you put the turbo in.my car has forged internals and the motor is fully ready to be boosted and im still really nervous about doing it (plus i dont have the cash lol).Just be VERY VERY careful and think long and hard about it.

Just to give you a ball park figure, I was looking at spending $7000 on the motor build itself. plus the Turbonetics kit another 4K so $11,000 think about it.

You might want to think about NA check this place out King Motorsports Unlimited, Inc.

I'm budgetting right now for mine to be built on the Street Performance build

Re: Bad idea to turbo?

right, and if you have the sh addition its pretty hard to run much boost with the atts in the tranny it most likely won't let you. I had a jrsc supercharger and ran around 8 psi and it did well but eventually was what blew the STOCK motor. and now the engine is built. and ready for the jrsc again. definitely build the engine first. now my h22 is ready for prolly 30psi its bullet proof. the main factor that's stopping me from doin it is the atts in the tranny. I would need quite a bit of cash to mess with the ecu and what not.

Re: Bad idea to turbo?

in reality in order for it to be done properly you're going to need to spend the money. bolt ons do not do the same thing as rebuilding the engine and having it bore sleeved, port and polished. if you're looking for a quick way to go fast, get a different car. im really tired of people blowing a perfectly good car because they just want to straight boost it because they believe they can run 30psi. i understand you want to run 7psi, but thats your choice. we dont know the condition of your engine only you can determine that.
im 18 years old now man, im a military brat and one of our duty stations was japan, yes the great country of japan. my first car was a twin turbo 93rx7, it was all stock i was stupid and blew the seals on the rotary and i was told i couldnt get another car. i got a job worked my @$$ off and got the money to rebuild it. it cost me 7k all together to rebuild it properly over a period 3years. and i learned that there is no quick way to build a car it takes time and dedication and if you dont want to take that time and learn, then you dont deserve to have something of this level. especially at the age you are right now, you got all the time to learn the ropes. take it slow and who care who makes fun of you if you drive a honda or dont have a boosted ride. they're prolly rich stuck up kids or old people who have all the money in the world and just want to show off their car and prove to themselves they got a fast car. tuner for life..

Re: Bad idea to turbo?

haha, carfinatic, I'm not saying i wanna straight boost 30psi, and i'm 17... I put around
4k into mine to get it almost perfection, sorry i didn't mean to sound like i'd do that i was trying to prove a point in saying, its just about bullet proof... but yea your right if you want a fast quick car go wit a diff one.
