if you're gonna make 500whp reliably you're gonna need an upgraded transmission (plenty of turbo people ripped 4th gear) and Hondata traction control with stronger axles. The stock fwd setup will not put power down and you're gonna experience a LOT of wheel hop and tire spin.

Modding cars is an expensive hobby

turbo kit comes with everything you need to get 500 whp including flashpro, fuel return and clutch...and I'm also assuming PRL is installing at that price or no?
tranny will "eventually" need upgrading Mfactory or the likes 3000.00 plus installation
Hasport complete mount set 500ish (needed to avoid wheel hop)
Big breaks..not seeing the point just get better pads and rotors unless serious autocross 1500ish (buddy club)
Spare block/tranny to minimize down time 1700 but at this point I would do a k24a2/k20z3 with matching tranny swap :woowoo:

food for thought.

DSS makes really good forged axles that can take a lot of abuse. Call up Denis from PRL motorsports and ask him to cut you a break if you get the turbo and transmission at the same time.
PRL has never turned down any reasonable I made them.

no installation and flashpro are separate. The turbo in he turbo kit alone is worth well over 1000.

Fun fact this guy can be had for less than the cost of a turbo civic.
Yeah but what are you going to do with that clown shoe, with a turbo civic you can do FWD burnouts, couple of Costco runs and get good fuel economy.

Honda 9th Gen Civic Si K-Series EFR Turbo Kit 2012-2015 - Full-Race.com

^^^ tell'm your goals of 500whp daily with stock internals.

In my Subaru i made 300whp and 340wtq and motor only lasted 60k ( stock motor ). Ringland failure with 2 pistons.
Then again it was on an E Tune. Don't do E Tunes.

Subaru now is making 305whp and 355wtq on built motor with stock heads & stock turbo. Currently have 85k on current set up.
Had same shop that built motor do a dyno and road tune.
