Default turbocharging a civic b16

Hi everyone,

I was just thinnking about turbo charging a civic b16. Is there a difference at all between turbo charging a civic and putting a turbo kit on.

A turbo kit you can spend 1000's on but there are somem companies offering turbo charger kits that add some bhp not as much as a turbo kit would.

I am trying to find out what this is all about as i thought to turbo a civic it would cost quite a bit but then some companies say u can get a turbo charger kit for less and it would add some power.

What is this about im confused.

Ya im also confused because you have no idea what you are talking about. A turbo charger and turbo are the same thing. A turbo kit includes the parts you need to turbo charge your civic. A turbo charger is just the actual turbo. There is no difference between turbo charging a civic and putting a turbo kit on. Its the same thing. You obviously need to research a lot more before you just start buying parts.
