I know that putting turbos on integras isn't uncommon, so I would think not, but to be safe, run on a lower psi, or ask a mechanic what they think

If your engine has a lot of miles on it like 100k and up the turbo kit will speed up the process towards the death of your engine. That is why a lot of people rebuilt their engine when turbocharging their car I even did it on my Integra and a friends Civic. That also answers your other question, yes you can turbo your engine here is a guide that I have linked. Its a simple guide on how to turbo a honda, i know on the link its a civic but its the same exact thing on a Integra.

well yes, all force induction will wear out your engine faster. you would need to rebuild your motor because the stock internals cant handel that much extra power. or keep it on low boost. also turbo builda arent cheap at all, if you are gonna go cheap or not do it right, dont waste your time or money or youll end up with nothing in the end. stay away from ebay!http://www.team-integra.net/sections...?ArticleID=219

It will definitely hurt your engine if it is a stock engine. I suggest getting your engine built so it can withstand your turbo for a while. If not, all your gonna have is a fast car for...give or take a month. For sure your going to have get performance parts to exchange your weak stock parts, specifically: valves, valve springs, retainers, pistons, camshafts, injectors...you get the point.
