Talking Turbo for our cars?!

He doesn't know it yet, but Matt Whelan has convienced me to get a Legend. I don't have one yet, but by the end of December I should be a proud owner of a 1993 Type II LS Couple. I am a speed demon and was wondering if there is a turbo available for the car or if anyone has ever had one custom made? If not, could anyone suggest a place to get one made? Let me know and thankx in advance. Carson.

There has only been one G2 Legend that has a turbo. That would be Gary D's TT Legend. It was never completed. Haven't heard from him in a bit so I am guessing he either abandoned the project or is still working out the major problems.

That is incorrect. There was a turboed Legend here in Md. Just couldn't keep a tranny in it. Then the shop folded (to many projects I guess).

Take a quick gander underneath the hood and find me the copious amounts of space a turbo setup would need.

I found some info, not sure if anyone knew this or not, but there's a company out in Arizona that will make and install turbo kits on our cars for aprox. $4-5K for any year Legend. Also, that would be the turn key price. That's a lot of money, but a turbo on top of 200+horsepower already, would be totally awesome! Here the link http://www.forcedairtech.com/89-ACURA-LEGEND.html What do you guys think? Carson

Honestly, IMHO I think we need superchargers over turbos. We have pretty good high end, but we need a little more low end to get our boat asses moving.....

I completely agree with that.

As far as space restraints go a supercharger is much easier than a turbo and we have room for a supercharger. Remove the battery and intake and you got a good 8" of space from the front of the engine to the radiator.

Relocate a few connectors and wire harnesses and there is quite a bit of room under the Legend hood.

same goes for turbos...all it is really is space management. there's "copious" amounts of room if you look. intellegent routing and determination...

LEST WE FORGET Schurppt (sorry if i mispelled) Impossible to do Longtube Headers. dont knock it until you try it.

wait no keep knocking it...then i could be the first Frequent of this board to own a Steet Driven Twin Turbo Acura Legend. LOL infinate Bragging right and OoH-COLD-BUST-YOU-OUTs.(haven't heard "bust you out" since like 3rd grade LOL)


Also i dont know why people wont listen...the supercharger being made for our car (by the venerable Leon) is NOT- I REPEAT- NOT a Lysholm (screw) OR ROOTS (oem jaguar Eaton) type super charger. the Super charger being devolped for our cars is the kind Like Vortech uses on the B series Engines. NO substantial Lowend increase. One MORE TIME NO SUBSTANTIAL INCREASE. two TD04's from a 3000GT VR4 will give tight LOW end and Awsome high end on our cars. PLUS the have Built in Wastegates This cuts down Plumbing needed for external wastegate. if the turbo is the right size, it will react faster than a supercharger. I.E the SUPEr MINIATURE turbo on VW's 1.8T having amazing low end.

Thats the Last time i say that because appearently no one is Listening.
