Ok, so I have a 98 ek hatch, and I've pretty much made up my mind that I was going to put a GSR motor in it that came already assembled from Hmotorsonline.com. I was just wondering what the best turbo setup would be if I wanted to get into the mid to high 12 sec. range in drag racing. Price is not really a key, I just want what is best. Can anyone help me out?
I had an ebay kit on a stock ls vtec with 200+ thousand miles on it and made numerous 11.7 passes. Any turbo kit is gonna go 12s with street tires if the tune is right and the driving is superb. The issue is reliability. That is what you are paying for
components-wise, the setup I listed for him is far more reliable than any ebay kit. If he wants reliability, he should look over all aspects of his build. Your bottom end is going to be the weak point.
But since this thread isnt "Whats the most reliable setup for a gsr" I just listed the turbo kit.
Also keep in mind the likely hood you will get your turbo kit a week or two after you order is unlikely from some of those names mentioned above. Do your research and drop your expectations down if you want a quick turnaround. And as stated these are just turbo kits. A lot of other parts that go into making a complete setup is not included and you will spend a lot to make a turbo kit work on a car.
