As long as you don't cut corners, it'll be just as reliable as it is now.

Dictionary.com
cut corners
To do something in the easiest or most inexpensive way.

If you do the head swap half-assed, like most people tend to do, then it won't be reliable at all. This means reliability depends on how you perform the swap.

And 7PSI doesn't mean anything.

7psi means nothing when we do not know what turbo you are using. A turbo car can be just as reliable as a non turbo car.

You did not provide enough information and you should have posted in the forced induction forum.

he means don' cheap out. fix it right the first time, and you will be fine. pounds of boost means nothing to be honest. It's the hp that you should worry about. remember pounds of boost is what your turbo handles. You should be fine with 200hp-250hp.

You think? I predict catastrophic failure or failed build. How are you trying to turbo a car when you don't even know what you have or the limits of the parts you're working with?

Then I don't know why you aren't asking the person doing the work? Especially if he said it will all work out. Isn't that a question you ask BEFORE you even buy one single part? No purpose to this thread.

I would not recomend that you listen to one grease monkey's input. I went to a pawn shop after my friend told me there was a turbo kit forsale there, the guy said he has had a lot of turbos. He WENT THROUGH a lot of turbos. See this was a cheap kit, first problem. Second problem, the dude knew nothing about how a turbo worked and just thought bolt on and go is fine enough. Well unless you can afford to buy a whole new block/turbo kit, I would research EVERYTHING you need to know from different sources. Don't listen to just one person, it's your car so you're going to want to know how to fix it yourself unless you just pay people to do your work. If thats the case, then im sure you can afford a new block anyways

Ya i would definatly trust a friend over some mechanic i just met. its just better safe than sorry, all it takes is one mess up to crack your block. Im sure if he has been doing it long enough, you should be fine.

I wouldn't. No warranties if he screws up and more than likely won't be able to make good if he does. I've read about and seen a lot of damage caused by less than capable friends.

^^^When i said mechanic, i'm not talking a guy that owns an actual buisness. Ya if you have the money to pay a guy 100 bucks an hour, go for the guy with the warranty. If your anything like me, your poor af and willing to do a little DIY. Ya it's risky, but if you do your homework then there is nothing to worry about.

Ya well its his fault, not ours if he doesnt do is homework. If he cares enough to keep his car running, he will do it. If not, he gets stuck with a nice big paper weight

Ditch the emanage and get a proper tune with an obd1 software. Chrome, neptune, ectune, hondata, etc.
