i have a 96 gsr, runs real nice. Ive only had a little problem wiht burning oil, and my rediator jus went, prolly due to high reving. (jus bought a koyo racing radiator) I was wondering, should i turbo my car if its got 75,000 miles on it? And if so how difficult is the process?

"over reving" your engine will never damage your rad. Rads simply fail with time and rust. but if your rads bad, then over reving will damage your engine and you might blow a head gasket.

I'm no expert on turbo's so i'll leave that to someone more qualified.
But I do know that if your adding a turbo with lots of boost, you have to get lower compression pistons and replace some of your internal engine parts with stronger ones.

another thing real quick. someone told me that changing the cams in your car isnt a good idea because its easy to mess up your engine. is this true or do you think its worth putting better cams in

Depending on what stage cams you use. If you have a stock motor then stage 1 cams are ideal. If you go with a stage 2 or 3 cams then it is highly recomended to install dual valve springs and retainers with a stage 2 cams. If you go with stage 3 cams you will have to also go with stiffer valves. if you are trying to find performance without spending a whole lot of cash then I would purchase a stage 2 drag turbo kit for the b18c1 and run 310 rc injectors so you dont have to replace your ecu. run a 6 pound wastgate spring and purchase a vortec fmu and a msd inline fuel pump. Depending on what turbo kit you get it might com with the fmu and fuel pump. My friend hase a 2000 gsr and we installed a stage 2 turbo kit and its fast. He hasent had any problems. Yet. If you go turbo just make sure you dont run alot of boost. I would run about 6,7,maybe 8 pounds on a stock bottom end. Hope this helped.

dude, just do a compression test... if they're all within 10% then go for it... if not, replace your rings then go for it
