So we've been working on some things lately for the 1.5L Turbo platform... Yes, this will fit both the Si and Non-Si chassis. :thumbsup:

Just in case anyone has missed it, we recently performed a Type-R turbo swap on our shop's Civic Si for R&D purposes with @KTuner and @VitViper. You can read about this swap and our findings HERE!

Our goal is to offer a bolt-on, no cutting required, 550+ whp capable turbo kit, and plan to test the limits of the stock L15B7 engine along the way. Yes, 550+ whp will require upgraded engine internals for longevity. However, we expect to find a reliable power level between 300-400 whp that stock internal engines can handle. This larger turbo will shift the torque/powerband to the right, aiding in reliability for the stock internals.

Here's a sneak peak with we've come up with so far, but we can't let the entire cat out of the bag yet! Stay tuned! ;)

So are we looking at top end upgrades to push this turbo into higher rev ranges with safety for the valvetrain, or completely stock internals?

Is your existing Cobra cold air intake for the SI going to be compatible with the new turbo setup?
