Default LS non vtec B18a1, turbocharge?

I want to turbocharge my B18a1 non vtec 1991 integra motor. I've heard they got low compression, and additionally non vtec so they are good for boosting. Only thing is, I want to know what head would work best on an LS block, and also if I need to have alot of work done on the bottom end to have it boosted, or if being lower compression, if it is fine as it is? Also, if I need work done to the bottom end, what do I need done? also if it weren't a LS non vtec, I wouldn't be boosting it. Im getting a gsr or type r swap for my integra and its going to be all motor. this is going into a del sol.nope JDM, its a B series. Most of those are also even manufactured in Japan as well as designedO jeez, I'd think the del sol is one of the lightest, more like the late CRX, but I guess not. And i'd love a type r swap but most reasonable would be a USDM Gsr swap or a JDM Gsr swap if I can find one, that would be nice

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the LSx block a GM engine?

The engine code is b18a1 which is out of an acura integra LS trim.stock ls motors are perfect for boost as long as the compression is still good and it doesn't burn oil/coolant.
