Your 3 options are, A, Cybernation which puts down the most horsepower and allows you to upgrade through stages (IE stage I to Stage II) but is also pretty expensive. B, GReddy which is less expensive, but puts down less power and doesn't currently have any room for stage upgrades similar to cybernation. And C, SEARCH so that people like me don't have to type things like this :D

Greddy kits are well built.. Cybernations welds are suspect.

They are just a turbo manufacturer..they don't actually make a turbo kit for the RSX>..but their turbo is commonly used in most kits. The Turbonetics T3/T4 hybrid turbo is possibly the most common turbo used on the RSX.

This is exactly how the Civic boards were :laughing:

A lot of people downed Greddy for power numbers stating that, in the Civics case, Drag was a better kit..

But as I've stated millions of times, you have to correctly tune the vehicle to get the power..Greddy makes a very well put together turbo kit with very high quality parts, and can see substantial power gains on the proper setup..

Just to prove some wrong in our area, I personally used Greddy turbo components on two of our shop cars (they were a 00 Si and a 94 GSR), to show the incredible power numbers to be had when tuned properly..Both of these cars with 1.8L VTEC motors easily put out 350whp on a mild engine build with 9.3:1 compression after 30 minutes each on a dyno..this was not a complete tune as we were on a time restriction that day, but just an example to show you..

I had actually considered putting together a custom turbo kit for our new shop car ('03 RSX Type S), but I am now considering a Greddy kit to clear all of the misconceptions that seem to arise every time..

No bad words against any other kit; any properly sized and put together turbo kit can make power in the hands of the right tuner when given the proper setup..
