Interested in how this plays out as well.. Looking into swaps and this one really intrigues me as far as factory turbo with greater fuel economy and that smooth torque band is a plus

Update on the TurboFit project

Final engine install, with just the cold air box to be installed and the Aerocatch hood pin system to install

Front brace after mods to make it fit the USDM mount points

This rear brace fit with no problems

2.5" exhaust mockup prior to final hanger welding
Sorry for the long time between updates, but here's the latest on the TurboFit build.
Hasport has completed the engine install and are now in the process of doing the wiring to get it fired up. In the meantime we have done a lot of work on the rest of the car including the install of the chassis braces from Ultra racing, install of the BC Racing coilovers, building the 2.5" exhaust system, designing and making the cold air intake to connect to the new sealed airbox, installing the Hella horns, installing the 2012 Civic Si front seats, plus all the other little things that have to be done with this type of project.

Very cool!

Should be a ton of fun to drive with the smooth torque delivery of the 1.5t combined with the sharper handling of a GD Fit!
