Icon5 Turbo in a 5th gen lude.

I have heard that its pointless putting a turbo on a 5th gen lude coz u would end up spinning on the spot for a couple of days..is this true or is there a good way to get round this problem>?

It is never pointless to boost a 5th gen. Reasons for "spinning on the spot" is either worn tires, worn motor mounts causing you to wheel hop, struts going out (aftermarket struts should be set a bit softer than stock). Another thing that would help tremendously is gettin a taller 1st/2nd gear, tune 1st gear to be a bit underpowered (set vtec to engage after ~25-30 mph is a starter). Research in it a bit more, and research the hondata s300 or NepTune, great features to help with traction loss.

Traction bars are also nice to have.
