There is a kit or two that come with that as well. If that is a muffled attempt at a sale. I'll give you $2, possibly more once I get my first paycheck from the new job. Then again, I've been contemplating selling it once the CRX is back up and running.

Having owned a 2.4L with a Evo 3 16G(which is basically the same as a 'big' 16G that you hear about), I can tell you that the response was amazing, and that I really wished I had at least a 20G. The boost creep issues were insane. Like holy **** I can't stay below 20psig insane. And that was with a fully ported out wastegate passage. I spent hours with a die-grinder not just enlarging the hole itself, but also allowing more range of motion with the flapper and actually changing the shape of the wastegate passage itself, which was then matched on the gasket and the large E3 02 housing I was using. I still had to do a ghetto/custom TiAL 38MM to get things under controll.

Response is great, its fun. But unless you are autoxing, it is IMHO given too much importance. Something like a 3071 is going to be tons of fun on a 2.4L and it will be better behaved, make more power more efficiently, and have tons more room if you need it in the future. If you turbo the TC I would go with a 3071 or 3076 ish size snail personally.

I'm not going to....most likely I'm going to sell it.

I'm starting a new jawb soon...hopefully. Already signed a contract award contingent offer. Will give me a significant raise (almost 50%). I just bought a super fresh, brand new, ATK reman motor for my CRX HF to get it back to DD duty. Stole it for $850 shipped with no core charge. They had it on overstock/deadstock. I will likely sell the TC once the CRX has inspired full confidence into me. I'll save 270/mo on the car payment, like 100/mo on insurance, and like 200/mo on gas because the HF sips gas even with my fat *** in it. The plan is to put as much as possible to pay off my 80k in student loans in the next 4-5 years. Which will be entirely doable at my upcoming salary.

Back on topic... Anyone want to buy a White 07 TC? 91K nearly 100% highway miles. Nothing but Mobile1 full synthetic 0w20 its whole life. Only $8.5k
