Default Turbo on Acura Integra non-vtec 1.8 L engine?

Okay... I have a Acura Integra 1.8 L non-vtec engine with about 30,000 miles on it. Also i have a new AEM cold-air intake and also a new full cat-bck exhuast system as well. Just wondering about what type of turbo kit i should get to improve the engine about 100 more hp. I'm aware of ebay and other sites having good deals i just need to know the type and model of turbo kit i should get. Thankyou

A Greddy kit is a good one to go with. It's moderately priced, it comes with everything you need and there is always the ability to improve some of the componants when you want even more hp...Be wary of Ebay get what you pay for. Greddy is a good name company.

GReddy is the best of the choices as far as quality and performance. Revhard is a joke and Turbonetics is good just doesnt offer all that GReddy does. Most GReddy forced intduction applications are 50 state legal which saves you plenty of headaches. Check out and see what they have to say about Integra turbo kits. Do not, and I repeat, do not buy an EBay kit! The lines on them blow easily and the intercooler is known to cause problems. Integras are great little cars to boost, just make sure you do it right.
