Killed by a Turbo Civic

My friend from work has this miracle motor (d16 - sohc) in his 1996 Hatchback Civic, its a honda motor so ofcourse it was a backyard project that he slapped together for fun and just happened to run (3 months and counting). He gots a huge turbo on it that by chance is boosting 10 psi out of nowhere, used to get 8. His motor isn't even dyno-tuned, he's running it with an auxilary fuel pressure regulator that's always on, miracle motor. We decided to run, my 1999 Camaro SS (pulled by only one axle, automatic, and on 225-60-16R...it's in a beaten stage) vs his Hatchback. Rolling at 20 mph, he took off a second early but pulled 2 car lengths ahead and not till 120 was I about to pass him, he broke. At a dead stop we both burned out til 60 then he got me by a length because he got traction sooner. He actually did pull slightly though throughout the rpm range, he beat me like this Evo 9 did. Can't wait till I get my Eaton LSD and Moser Axles in June thanks to Bush's refunds, then I'll put my 285-30-20R BF Goodrichs on and handle them stock.

Maybe tuning wise, but parts wise? Its like apples and oranges. You can 'beef' up like a little b20 vtec for little to nothing comparatively. Hence why there are so many teenagers around the US in little hondas with cars they think are 'beast'. I mean think about it, how common are turbos for those cars? How common are turbos for muscle cars?

I agree with Phate, my friends turbo kit cost $600, the STS kit is over $4000. But it takes 10 lbs of boost to chase down a badly stock SS, any V8 with 10 lbs had better run away from Lambos. And my SS is only pulling one axle because of a bad diff.
