Cheapest is usually the worst for performance/reliability. Be safe and get a greddy turbo kit with intercooler, boost controller, GT28 ball bearing turbo and all the piping and new injectors for around 3 grand. Its the best performance for the price. With stock internals on 6-8 psi expect 300bhp with the stock 9.2:1 compression and a free flowing exhaust system with a tuned comp.

Your best decision would probably be to buy the best kit you can afford and find a friend who lives under the hood of his car. My friend did his civic's kit for 700, but his fuel management system set him back an equal 700. If you have a friend who knows what he's doing, plan on laying down around 2k for it, but if it's a good friend, he may do it for free!Best of luck.
