    I built a turbo Civic back in the early 2000's, cost about $4K and I ran Hondata 3BD (like an S300 today). Still have the car, but I pulled the turbo on it and shelved it. Wasn't gonna pass emissions like that since I ran an open downpipe.

    I also bought a turbo Civic, built D16Y8 and dyno tuned to 270 hp at the wheels. Ridiculous to drive. So much fun!! Then emissions laws changed and now IT can't pass emissions because of the ECU being tuned so it has no OBD2 communication. Still have this car as well, not sure what I'll do with it.

    I will also likely be turbocharging my 93 Saturn wagon at some point. plan is to use the turbo out of the Civic and a megasquirt ECU for tuning. That car only gets a tailpipe test, so I should have no issue passing.

    But I doubt I would turbo the Odyssey. If I was to build a fast van on the cheap, I'd get a Montana and swap in a supercharged Grand Prix or Regal engine in there... or GXP or whatever they call them. Easy plug and play, all bolt in, emissions legal, loads of performance parts. Can prob get about 400 hp from a mostly stock block bolt-in swap. Little air to water intercooling, little overdriving pulley, little tuning... have a fast Montana. Also lowered suspension options from the W-body cars and Pontiac Torrent rims, have a bomb little van for prob less than $4K all in. Maybe even less!

    we took it to the quarter mile once and made 2 passes, the first pass they thought there computer malfunctioned, on the second pass we were told we couldnt go down the track again until we had a proper seatbelt cage and shut off switch...that was on street tires.

    This is one of my favorites:



    Note the ET & trap speed at the end. If you're thinking how that matches, it means that van was really getting off its hind legs and starting to march hard approaching the 1/8-mile point. In short, even with a bad launch & poor 60-foot time, once at that point he could wave bye-bye to a lot of other vehicles in his mirror on any given run.

    I'd pay money to see one of these in Europe, head-to-head against an AMG Mercedes on a standing 1/2-kilometer drag race.

    OdyVanMan04, I can't imagine how much fun you had with your Dodge turbo Mitsu motor ride. It's the only setup where you can bring your family, all the other guys watch your kids pile out of the van, you put on the slicks, and then go tear up the strip.

    I followed one guy's build online, and had to laugh when he related how the event safety & tech guys asked him, "Hey, where's your driveshaft hoop? We can't find one...actually, we can't even find the driveshaft...."

    I used MSD setups that are designed to piggy back any stock system and work great, saves on a $3000 stand alone computer

    Turbo kits are nothing but plumbing, especially, ebay ones. It's easy and you could pretty much source it yourself. The most expensive parts are the turbo,turbo manifold, ecu, and the tuning. Personally, I wouldn't use an Ebay turbo. Everything else is ok to use Ebay, IMO. Obviously, not the ECU. If you use an ebay manifold, double check the welds on the manfold and reweld if necessary before putting it on. Usually, the problem w/ these are fitment. holes may not align or large enough...etc.
