      Yeah that part kind of turned me off. I mean, more power is always nice, but if going to turbo I would not have picked the F motor to be honest. People just cant get past trying to make it a straight line motor, when that is not what it was ever designed for. Not to mention the cost of a new f motor if it is damaged. Not my choice of a boost platform if I were looking to boost.

        What you need to do is size the turbo so it reaches the boost threshold about 300 RPM before the VTEC point so you have to work really hard not to spin it.

          Looks like we all had the same thought here. I die inside a little more every time I see an S2k with a turbo. =[

            Now, I know of a Ford 327 with a turbo I wouldn't mind owning...
