    Default Turbo charging Honda accord cl7

    Dear Experts,

    I am thinking of installing a turbo on my honda accord cl7. Currently the car is in outstanding condition, but i somehow feel the need for a little more speed

    Is there anyone here who has done somthing similar ? or can anyone advise me on below question

    1. What size of turbo to use ? psi ?
    2. how much modification will be needed ?
    3. Where to find a good mechanic in isb/rwp ?
    4. very important question: where can i find a turbo,intercooler, ECU and blow off valve in isb/rwp ? i think mitho khan ka hatta near sadar should be a good option ?
    5. How feasible it is to use turbo from diesel accord iCDTI ?
    7. money is not an issue, but how much do i need ?
    6. Should i even go for it or not ? i dont wanna mess up this beautiful car.

    Thanks in advance

    Hello bango
    Well, I beg to differ:
    I don't think stock internals, especially rods, should take nitrous so happily, also that'd be a bye bye auto-tranny secnario.
    Colder plugs would only foul themselves, no gains only loss.

    Since it's a CL7, why not pop in a K24?

    The stock internals will take upto 50, imho.


    Ofcourse the transmission screw up is inevitable. A car swap is the safest bet, euro R with an M/T.

    A couple of times each week and he can run it for years. K20 is a strong motor, stronger than a lot of others out there.

    honda aato tranny is best when its in the furnace being recycled. The rod ratio is pretty nice on the engine but still WHY? - sell the car and buy a proper wheel drive car and then boost/nos/fog/slam/sick/ the life out of it. e.g. a Supra comes to mind.

    Getting more power from any setup has its drawbacks in many ways. More hp through any means allmotor/turbo/sc/nitrous means more load on the rods/bearings/cylinder walls etc.

    Why leap into things when you dont even have the basic knowledge of these kind of things? I have drowned alot of money when i didnt used to know stuff. If i knew things back then if i would had searched on the websites/i would had been alot further where i stand at the moment.

    Search-search-search is all i can say.

    And in the end. If your thinking/mentality is that "yaar turbo drinks alot of fuel or this stuff is too expensive" then i must say please enjoy stock cars!!

    Not everyone has the patience/time/money/knowledge/resources to build a car in-terms of performance.
    knowledge is horsepower

    @uiv and Xulfiqar : deep down inside i know you guy are talking sense, more air flow means more dirt going in the throttle.period .. maybe i wanned to believe that K&N wont harm my car because i really liked it ... but you guys just wont let me keep it on, wud ya ? ... ill be removing the filter this weekend and replace it with the un-cool and stupid original one ... btw it was the K&N replacement filter that i had on, not the whole intake thingy. but i guess the same rule applies there too.

    Popping k24 motor doesn't really appeal to me as i have to think about the resale of the car too (i change the car almost every year) ... and if i were to swap it better be k20 from euro r ... but with that cost i wud be better off selling cl7 and buying euro r instead which has got the whole sports package.

    But im not gonna buy euro r either ... next one has got to be a RWD !!
