Default turbo my civic at 5 psi?

ok so i have a 99 civic ex its SOHC d16y8 and it is an auto! this is where im having alot of issues. so i wanna run low boost 5psi for fun just street driving so i want it to spool fast low rpm for city driving. so i was thinking about a crx racing turbo kit they sell them at now ik there not the best quality but them being sold there it gives me more of a safty net if it dosent fit or blows. so at 5 psi how would i tune with an automatic obd2 ecu any help with this is great, and would i need new injectors i dont think its to nessacary for low boost and would i NEED an intercooler ik its better to have one but at4-5 psi im not sure i really need one this is my Daily driver so i want to keep it safe and not mess up my car it only have 57k on it thanks for any help please serious answers

honestly there is no point in boosting an auto single cam ..because if your planning to go boost you have to spend some money if you want it to come out right or else there is no point. I would either convert to 5 speed or drop in a b series and boost it.
