Re: high compression turbo

Asas long as you have a very good tuner who knows exactly what he's doing, you will ansolutely love the extra power from high CR turbo!!

Re: high compression turbo

Well, your also comparing a Neon (Chrysler's lowest end car) to a Prelude (Of it's day, Honda's top of the line car)

The toll it will take on brakes and suspension is directly proportional to how you drive it. Increasing your cars forward propulsion to the tune of 50-100% is definitely going to need some extra stopping power to be safe to drive hard. Same goes for suspension. Honda had XX speed in mind when they designed it. When you up the anty to XXX or X squared then your going to find limitations in less than desirable way.

Re: high compression turbo

It all depends on how you drive it. Of course if your spinning your wheels like crazy you will break the axles lol. Brakes you can just get slotted rotors and better pads. You gotta pay to play. Moe power=strong parts.
