Turbo Specialties, Inc and Turbo-Kits.com have answered the demand of all the red-headed stepchildren (otherwise known as a 2001-and-up Civic owners) by developing a new bolt-on turbo kit for the underpowered 1.7L SOHC. The fast-spooling T25 turbo allows the 1.7L to belt out 167 hp and 160 ft/lbs at the wheels or 200 hp and 192 ft/lbs measured at the crankshaft. These figures are made at only .4 bar (6 psi). Full boost is reached at 2500 RPM. This turbo kit will not win any dyno wars or make you a hero on Honda-Tech.com, but it will produce enough power and torque to make your drive more enjoyable, while still giving you the ability to drive it everyday. Like many factory turbocharged vehicles, you can upgrade the system by swapping out the T25 with the higher-flowing T28 Ball Bearing turbo which will give you 325-350 hp at the wheels (with proper tuning).
