Reason being;

If I can do a turbo setup on this engine as it sits and swap everything over to the 3.8sc eventually, that would rock. forged bottom end ftw

But what of the intake manifolds?

Here is a turbo kit for you're motor. They tell a lot of what you need but you still might want to go the clubgp and search through the tubo talk section. One thing I do know is you DO NOT want to run 12 or more psi on a stock L36 bottom end.

Ugh, I hate turbo kits lol. Thanks for the link though

Anyone know if I can get just the turbo manifolds? If not I know a guy who makes turbo manifolds for Honda'* so maybe I can get into contact with him...

MAN I need to learn more about these cars lol

You don't necessarily NEED manifolds for the turbo. I personally know a guy that is running a Grand Prix GT with a turbo in place of the muffler. It takes alot of fabrication work, but nothing in it would be as hard as fabbing turbo headers.

lol, rear mounted turbo setups My buddy is doing that on his CRX... need an oil pump and a whole bunch of other stuff... I'd rather have an intercooler too. But thanks for the suggestion!
