Default How should I build up my civic?

So im gettin ready to buy a civic probably a si or a ex but thats not the point. What I wanna do once I get it is turn it into a sleeper, turbo, exhaust, you know hook it up. But I dont know what honda engines handle boost the best or are good price wise. So I wanna buy a car with the right engine already in so I dont waste more money. Then a good turbo not a cheap one but also not one that will break the bank. So my question is what is a combination of engine and turbo and whats the check gonna look like? And I mean everything I need for it to be running good and strong.

P.S. The money have saved up is about 9k ill probably buy the car for like 2-3 so my budget to build it gonna be about 6k

p.p.s I also want it to have ac and ps because I live in the desert and driving without ps is such b%@*h

If your going to buy a Civic, get the SI with a B16. Get a good turbo system, Turbonectics, Drag or Full Race is good. Get a good clutch as well. Go with ACT. Then get a Hondata and use that to tune the engine. 9k well spent.

buy older civic shell, swap in k20, turbo it, have really fast car.

actually the 99-00 si is a great platform.

to learn more, go read a little bit at, people have posted dynos, build threads and even track time slips. so you can really see what works, and so to speak pry the brains of many to see what you think will work.

If you want a sleeper, don't buy a Civic.

If you want a nice/decent car, not a beater, don't buy a Civic.

All you need is to go get a huge fart muffler like the mexicans. Tint the windows, lower it, but terrible low profile tires with spinners. just go look at a mexicans car and you will be set.
