Good porting is not cheap. Good porting will increase flow on both the intake and the exhaust side. Even better, on the exhaust side with the Turbo, make sure you get port matching. With the flow increased, the horse power goes up.

Two things on that..
One) Make sure you do go to someone that knows what they are doing. I have been racing Hondas for years and have seen way too many times soneone spending a lot of money and actualy loosing HP because they go to somone that isnt experianced. Bigger isnt always better.. it's flow..

Two) Make sure you do port match the intake manifold or it realy isnt worth doing.

If and when you do this I am sure we will all be very interested in the results..

Yes to everything Adam said. Bigger is not always better. You can move the power curve so far up the RPM scale that the car becomes undrivable in the street. Oh, and port match to the exhaust manifold too. Especially with a boosted engine. The exhaust needs to flow like goose crap through a tin horn.

Save your money and buy the Turbo off of the SRT4 Stage 3 when it comes out. Of course that will require you to already have the S2 components installed on your GT.
