Default Is this turbo any good?

I have a d16 sohc in my honda hatch back. I want to boost the car to a safe 8 psi only because its on a stock motor. I'm looking for good turbo kits for the car. All I want is that extra speed for fun the the turbo sound is the street demon turbo kit good ?? It's 1100$ on eBay if not what can I get that will insure the car can run safe boost?

If your going to turbo a stock, SOHC Honda motor and put $1,100.00 into it on just the turbo then I would just take the d16 out sell it for what you can get and throw in a B16a or B18c or do an ls vtec build, I built my B16a/18a1 ls vtec for about $800. And a turbo kit should be about half that unless it comes with ALL the hardware AND an intercooler PLUS piping. I couldn't tell you how many times I've seen kids turbo their d series engines to Hell only to blow a head gasket or throw a rod within 10,000 miles just my two cents though. Good luck, PS I switched to VW's for a reason...and Ebay is the worst place to buy aftermarket parts btw. their all mae in Korea.
