Default Turbo Intercooler Or A Wide Body Kit ??

Hey Guys,

I own a Honda City 1.5 vtec, got it well modified... Did minor upgrades to the Engine, body and the interiors... like the Free Flow, Exhaust, External K&N Air Filter, Spark Plugs, Fuel Regulator Pressure, also got lower springs, changed the interior with racing seats, original momo stering wheel, unique mags, graphics.. etc..
I wanted to know that i was thinking bout putting an Turbo intercooler installed.. but then i also wanted the wide body kit.. so i am a bit confused.. which of the one should i opt... ??
i thot i cud get some suggestions from you guys.. so please do let me know..

Rgds,
ollie..

You can get ones for as less as 35k. And i'm talking about the whole kit - bov, fpr, intercooler... in short, the works.

Godspeed.

A wiseman/wiseguy once explained to me - why would you want to go in for branded turbos like garrett, hks, kkk, IHI and the likes, when the same amount of power can be harnessed from the unbranded ones (that can be bought for half the price)!
Unless you believe in all the poser talk.

Godspeed.

Although you are paying a bit extra for the name, you are also paying for a product from a large well know company which has probably spent more time on R&D and has had more experience making the product in most cases. Thats why...
