I have heard nothing but good things about Bisimoto, and that is probably who is going to build my motor. and 8.2 is only .6 lower than stock compression. Also 220whp on a build block is no problem at all, could be done on a stock block but with that many miles and that much boost wouldnt last for too long. 3 grand for a built block and turbo set up? not going to happen, at least not a good one.

well considering to put new rods and pistons in it will cost you $1500 at least in parts and machineing, leaving $1500 for the turbo set up, which a good turbo alone can cost anywhere from 500-1000.

NA to FI conversion will cost over 3000 by itself after tuning, instrumentation, piggyback ECU, injectors and tuning.

For 3 grand, I recommend the swap and a camshaft upgrade.

rods-$600
pistons-$500
machining-Should we say $500
turbo-$600
intercooloer-$300
ECU-$150
Injectors-$200
Hondata-$500
dyno tune-$300

And thats just a quick list, and I dont know all that much about turboing a car. And there are ALWAYS hidden costs.
