Turbo kit tech gurus. help!

ok. i found a SOHC turbo kit and here's what it has:


"fits 92-2000 Civic SOHC, Garret T28 turbo, polished intercooler piping, Spearco front mount, Blitz blowoff, Nos fuel pump, FMU, autometer, boost and EGT"

is there anyway to make it fit a 2k1 ex?
what should i look out for in a used turbo? problems/ pitfalls?

oh and its $1600. hows that for price?

thanks for your help

the FMU won't work and you'll have to fabricate a custom exhaust manifold

umm, the intercooler wont work, the fuel pump wont work, nothing will work.....godamn returnless fuel system!

umm, u could use the turbo and the guages.....lol, but youd still have to figure out something to do with the fuel system, or you going to be stuck to 3-4psi

correction, the intercooler would work, but good luck getting it to fit!

There was an article in sports compact car mag. a couple of months ago about the new toyota matrix having the same problem with returnless fuel system...and they found a way around it. XS Engineering was company doing the install of the turbo system.
