Default What all is needed to add a turbo kit on a 98-2000 Civic/Civic Si( for a project & personal car)?

I'm going to buy a Civic that i want to make my project & personal car, but not a track only car but would like to race it if I need to. I would like to know what all would be needed to add a turbo kit but also up grade the rest of the engine. I will be doing most of the work on it but i know that i might need to send some parts out to the machine shop. In other words, what would i need besides the turbo kit? Wire harness, super chip, wires, ign. system, fuel system, hoses, ext... ? I want to do the engine 1st and worry about the interior and exterior later. the exterior would not take much since I'm planing on not adding too much. I would like for it to be more like a sleeper cell car, it will look simple and sporty but the engine is a monster. Anyone out there that can help please e-mail me.

Oh, also need to know what i could do to up grade the transmission cause its going to be a 5 spd.

Lots of cash. Not worth the time, money, and effort.

You will need a turbo manifold, a turbo, full exhaust, ecu re-flash, intake manifold, bigger fuel pump, larger injectors. It can be done over a weekend. Civic's are front wheel drive, so they do not handle very well, so I assume the track you are talking about is a drag strip. Total cost is around $4500-$7500. You should be running
