Information I have says the engine block on the turbo model is a stronger, reinforced version of the NA engine. The same block is used for the STi, which suggests to me that in my XT it is understressed.dicknose said:I think a turbo is going to be less reliable.
Its got more parts! Plus its a higher strung engine...

114k miles and no problems. not modded yet apart from a greens filter and going to upgrade the exhaust this month
I agree. Years ago I bought a Civic because it was supposed to be so reliable. But I hated to drive it and found it to be the most uncomfortable car for long trips. Point being buy and drive a car because you like to drive it or because it fits your needs, never buy a car cause it is reliable unless reliability is your only need.Northwest Tan said:
