This is just for anyone considering this type of thing:
If you put a turbo on your engine, you want to beef up your fuel system before you beef up your internals, just FYI. Bad air-fuel ratios under boost lead to detonation and melted pistons.

Just buy something that is already turboed. My turbo charged car cost a whopping $800 and is cool as hell.

Oh and its a dodge caravan :D

Haha, my mom's turbo V6 Plymouth Grand Voyager rawkz?! The funny thing is burning your friends who think their cars are hot. "Dude, you got beat by a MINIVAN." What a dependable beast it is.

All the turbo ones are 2.5l 4 bangers and no grands were ever officially made. There are a few out there though.

Actually if its burning lots of oil its probably a 3.0l v6 and thats a mitsubishi built engine.

i've heard people arguing that a turboed accord 4 is a better alternative than a modded H22A, but i know nothing of such things despite sorely wishing my own accord had more power.

Buy a car with a turbo stock:

Saab SPG has 175hp stock (only comes in manual and eats most other cars at 30-120 with a few mods-BOV, APC adjustments, RRFR, Wastegate adjustment, Timing adjustment, intercooler cooling, my $1300 spg is very very fast and nice (leather interior, power everything, sunroof, heated seats)-much nicer than any 2002+ honda).

Raced a stock 944T 91 and 91 m3 at highway speeds+ and broke even.

You ricer boys crack me up.

Couple of 900SPGS (mines a bit less tuned but these fellas are hitting 220+)

Saabs, while a nice enough car are stoopid expensive to fix and not reliable. I knew of 4 people with them and every single one was a lemon. Something always needed to be done to them.

No thanks.

Either one will do it. I have never seen so many mesquito wagons as what has rolled out of the Dimestore-Crapsler corp.

Nah, it doesn't burn oil at all. Actually, we've never owned a Chrysler that burned oil. Every Ford and GM we've owned did, though. The van has, however, embarassed guys who think their 1991 Escorts and 1992 Dodge whatever-that-convertible-is can race. What, you thought it was beating cars with actual engines?
