Default where do i start

So i just bought a 2004 civic lx 1.7L.... it started out as just a good car to drive back and forth to work but something happened and i decieded to give it a little more power. I've never done this to an import so im at a loss here on where i should be doing my research. I would like to add a turbo do the exhaust and air intake, chip it ,ect.... if some one could point me in the right direction that would be great.

would not suggest adding anything until you build the block its self up otherwise it will only lead to issues.

I'm not really interested in building this block since it's only a 1.7L...
Just wanting to try different things so that when I find the right engine I'm not experimenting with it.... How are these engines to build... How much power can they handle.... Where do I start looking for parts.... I live in Canada and not near a really big city....

try consult it to a mechanic to check for better mods... yes don't try to experiment cause it might lead to expensive repair... try checking parts online, there are a lot of websites to check
