Last year TDi North posted a thread on the itrdc5 forum (www.itr-dc5.com) saying that they'd developed a turbo kit suitable for the EP3 and the DC5 Type R's. I got straight onto the phone to find out more. After not very much convincing I agreed to make the trip up north and go to see the guys in person. With the promise of a good nose around their facility, time for all my questions and a quick spin in Ben's EG it was an easy sell!
If you haven't seen Ben Smith's K20 converted, Turbocharged, EG Hatch... make sure you check it out on my channel:
After literally 2minutes of that first test drive in Ben's EG I knew that I not only wanted...but needed a turbo fitted to my car! If you haven't experienced it (Turbo Honda) ...It really is as good as everyone says! Haha
Back at the workshop the conversation started to get serious. After I'd exhausted all possible questions and my mind was put at ease the deal was done. TDi North agreed to use my car to develop the kit and offered a discount on the basis that I would document the whole process and turn it into a video.
The date was set, materials ordered and I went back on my merry way with a beeming smile on my face.
The time dragged waiting for the date to come round but eventually the day of the conversion came.
I was booked into a local hotel for a week while the conversion took place. During that week I went down to the workshop every day to document the whole process, film interviews, ask questions and generally and get in the way.
Hopefully that sets the scene for the video but if you have any more questions get in touch via social media.

Jet Car @ JapShow
Jet Car: 10,000 bhp. 336mph. 20,000rpm. 5-second quarter-mile times. These figures sound like pure fantasy, but the Fireforce Jet Car makes them a shocking reality. Don't miss this car out on track, but don't worry, you'll know its coming when you hear the air being torn apart by the massive turbine engine.
