mrimage's... the mysterious red 7th gen is supposedly v6 turbo but I don't think it is proven to be true.

and yea projectpat817 from AT has garrett t3/to4e turbo in his 4banger.

i don't know if you guys have seen this car, but it's a black cl-s v6 that has a custom turbo kit in it. real nice....i got to find the link, it was on an acura forum. anyways point being is, that engine is pretty much the same engine as the accord's v6, don't know about engine bay size, but turbo'in the j series engine has been done.

Uhh... higher displacement engines yield more stress under boost. It's not just a turbo. You need to redo your fuel system (injectors, pump), you need an intake system with intercooler... you need to lower your compression to make sure you don't kill yourself in a mushroom cloud.

Not only is it money, it is space in the engine bay. I'm sure it can be done, but it's a lot easier finding spaces for all these new components and moving existing components to other spaces in the engine bay with a small inline four than with our V6's.

Finally, all these extra stresses play a roll in engine balancing. If you notice, most six-cyl turbo setups are inline-6s, because they are more stable engines. There aren't very many V-config turbo engines running at high boost. Not for very long anyway

Oh and let's not forget our favorite autotragic transmission =)
