They've had that add out (Comming soon) since like a year and a half ago. You wouldn't think it would take a company like them this long to come up with a simple kit for the SX.

To heck with them. Build your own kit.

A friend of mine has a connection at GReddy and they told him that its being worked on, but its taking awhile since they want to have it right as possible. I will come out, just a matter of time when that will be.

I guess its like, they don't have very many people working on the 240SX turbo kit as they would on ie. a civic si kit for say, because even tho there is alot of us 240s, there really isn't that huge a damand as ricers wanting turbo kits for their soda bottle engines.

april 2003 or march 2003 i called them like last week about it also they might be testing it out this month on some cars according to a friend of mine that was at sema i think the reason why its taking so long to come out is because of the carb stuff in cali also the rep i talked to said it might be 3k-4k no intercooler thats a lot of money

although 3k wouldnt be too bad, finding ure own intercooler would make it about even (financially) with the other kits.... kinda...

dont flame me too hard but...

Hondas arent that bad man. most of them are light ( = faster - easier) , VERY reliable (before i got my 240 i had a civic DX and bagged the ***** out of it and nothing broke) and with proper tuning they can be made to keep up with the rest of the real imports.

I think they got their bad name from f***** kids who call a "tuned" honda one with just an exhaust sys and an inkate :pface

Also about that soda bottle comment, my friends civic 1.6L could beat my 240sx anyday :(

Just my 2 cents

I use to like Hondas, until tonight.

I bought my ex-girlfriend a car stereo for her birthday, so I went to install it, to get the stereo out of her 93 Accord I have to take the center consol out and remove the stereo that way. I was thinking, that sucks but not too bad, then I find out her drivers side seat doesn't move like its suppose to and to get to the 6th screw the seat needs to move. Its an on going project just to change the freakin stereo... god hondas suck

The reason the kit is taking so long is probably because they are tryign to make it street legal (this is just a guess). To get a new product, especially a major mod like a turbo kit CARB certified, takes time to get through all b.s. . The U.S. has the most outdated and stupid emission laws. Thats part of the reason we dont get all the cool cars like the rest of the world. The other turbo kits (NSPORT, etc.) will probably be better for those of us trying to make serious power anyways.

from all the experience I've had with Greddy stuff it's crap (at least thier manifolds and turbo kits). They have a nasty history of cracking. I'd stick with Nsport or Fmax with my money.....

id say go custom though. It'll probably cost more but you'll save in the long run plus you can decide exactly what you want

I agree with ST240. IF you have the knowhow, go custom. In my opinion, Greddy is not the worst stuff you can buy, but its not the greatest either. Besides, if you want a turbo kit, would you rather get one that has been around for a while and people know it works, or get the newest one that may have a bug or two. The only upside to the Greddy system is that it is going to be street legal (supposedly), which if you live somewhere that has strict emission laws, will be great. Thats about the only good thing ive discovered about georgia since i moved here, they dont care what you put on your car. I grew up in cali, and their emission laws suck!

yeah i want to go custom, but if i went that route, itd be more expensive...i was talkin about this shop about doin a T60 setup with tubular manifold...the owner was pretty anxious to try it out, so i know i can work through him...i think a T60 would put out if i did a complete internal buildup...but im not even close to having the $$ to do it yet, but never hurts to plan...

a custom turbo kit would be a good choice sometimes its cheaper depending on what you want like do you want a 1/4 mile car which is going to cost more or a good street car which would be a little cheaper then most kits out like xs, nsport, or fmax it sounds like you want a 1/4 mile car t60 setup i think your better off doing a custom turbo for that

yeah, itll be pullin both street and 1/4 duties, with so many 11-12-13sec mustangs/camaros/firebirds and t/a's, u almost have to have a track oriented car just to be competitive on the street. but im also lookin at gettin a civic for like $200 and throwin in a motor my buddys got in his garage for my daily so my 240 would be weekend warrior....mayb...mayb not... otherwise ill just have to make my 240 more street oriented. im confused and i have a headache, ill sort all this out later, thanks for the info guys.

why get a civic when you can put all that money in the 240 you can have a 11-12 daily driver full interior :) also honda engines are way overpriced 5000 for a type r motor 2300 for a b16 thats way to much money
