The best way to go turbo is an engine swap.
Too much time and effort to go na/t.
Plus the cash.

You shouldn't be thinking about this stuff if you don't have a clue as to being able to pull it off.

You'll just end up with a scrapped car.

Why is no one telling this kid that when he buys a jdm that without a rebuild it can't be trusted as reliable???

Advocate your parts house that's cool but don't just be posting up so you can spread your propaganda.

About half the stuff you say all leads to your lil parts link.

JDM engines have to be rebuilt man. The head has to be machined and the block needs to have something done with it. You may luck out and get a slightly modded engine. You may get a P.O.S. that's full of rust when you crack it open.

Regardless. All jdm engines are not plug and play. If you go plug and play. You just gambled with your engine.
