mp 70 dependable makes good power cheap.

I'm not a magazine racer, my car is actually fast.
I also have a Honda civic but, mine has a bigger, uglier driver.

On3 67mm ball bearing would get my vote.

anything from 62-70mm will run great and spool fast, stick with a .68 exhaust housing. I'd recommend a 70mm journal, if you go with a ball bearing you can get a smaller one.

You can find the on3 turbos on ebay for $350 shipped, they just don't say on3 on them! I bought mine from an ebay seller called fusionetics. They list it as having a 3.5 exhaust size but its really a 3 inch, only problem I had with them.
