im planing on getting a lancer either oz or ralliart, and turbo charging it or some other way of increasing horsepower,but im not to sure how much hp im going to gain. but then again i like the rsx but its about 5k more than the oz lancer and 2k more than the ralliart. Im only 16 so my parents r paying for it. But i met some1 on cardomain.com that bought a lancer oz and turbo charged it for 3k and he says he get 300-330 hp from a stock 120hp. is this true? how much hp can u gain with a turbo charger for around 3k? should i buy rsx and upgrade or lancer and do what the guy i met did(plz keep in mind my parents r paying for this and im sure they dont want to spend above 21k. PLZ HELP?

I don't think the engine could hold that much boost.

Try asking this on a Lancer board to see if this is "true".

210whp for $3000, if thats the case you'd have to be boosting pretty high. So eithers it's going to be bullshit or hella unreliable. just IMO by the way.

If you buy a lancer it will loose half of its value withen the first year. A RSX is a better investment and looks alot better. Also you can turbo it for $3300 too.

Dude if your parents don't want to spend more than 21k just go and get an 02 type-s or base.........you could then slap a turbo on it for a couple of grand like my man above said...........hope to see you in an rsx and not a lancer because imo they are :lame: and look like poop !!!!

Hey n00b, why are you asking lancer questions on an RSX board ... Do some research and look around on this site ... they are PLENTY of threads and people with stage 1 ($3,000 turbo kits) on this site ... then go to a lancer forum and ask them the lancer turbo questions. You will get 10x better resale value with an RSX.
OR you can get a POS and learn how to drive first befor you get a 20K RSX and then spend 3k+ boosting it and then spending 5K+ getting a new motor becasue you don't know how to drive and you blew the motor!

Thank u scud thats all i needed to kno :) as for that fucker who called me a noob, i really douibt that he is the best . if i were to race him a year form now I would prolly beat him with just 6 months to a year form getting my car. And who the hell said i was gonna crash? im not that damn stupid to race in the rain or try to drift inches aways form a fuckin cliff. if i can controll a van on a drift and not fish tail out, im damn sure i can controll a sport compact car.

First I never said I was the best, you asked for opinions and I gave you mine. If you can't take a little opinion then you are DEAD in the real world. ALSO if you really want to get into racing me you are more then welcome to try when ever you are ready, not to brag but as a 411 to ya, I have been driving for 5 years now & the past 2 years I have driven a Viper at 140+mph on the Nashville Super Speedyway oval and road corse AND I have passed/graduated the Skip Barber Viper Racing School. I have So If you really want to give it shot you are more then welcome to look me up when ever you are ready. You just tell me which track and when to be there!
