simply no,because turbo needs strong engine parts and able to rase suddenly to high speed,the design totaly different.

you can put a turbo in your car it just depends on how big you go but you might have to get a computer to help with the running of the car when you go into boost and if the rest of the car can take ityou will most have to piggyback it that means the new computer helps the old 1 when the boost come in

Yes you can put a turbo on nearly anything, and there are actually a couple of kits out there for your car. The automatic in your car is going to be the weak point. They are not the strongest transmission, and I would not expect it to handle more than 8psi at the most. That is just an assumption, and it may not hold up to that for long. The engine itself is rather tough, and with good tuning, the stock internals are stable shortly upwards of 10psi with good tuning. If you plan on running much boost at all, I would swap the transmission over for a manual, or swap out the engine and transmission.

Yes you can put a turbo kit in your car. But it would be a waste of money because you wont be feeling all the power from the kit as if you had a 5 speed.. So just keep with a intake, exhaust, and headers.

You can turbocharge anything. ex: put a turbo on a microwave and it becomes a convection oven. so, yes, you can. be sure you change all of the seals in the engine, get stronger valves and other head goodies, and a stronger transmission, like a JDM SiR-T civic tranny, and have a mechanic that knows what he's doing run HONDATA software on the ecu to re-map the fuel injection, and you should be fine. Be careful though, that's about $5-6000 you're looking at.
