Ebay, from all the others that blew their engines up after adding a turbo. You are talking about a total rebuild to add a turbo. Don't let the t-lag hit you in the butt on the way out.

You cannot add a turbo to an engine that is not build for it. It takes differant pistons, rings, and a whole lot better oiling system. It won't last a month.

Check in the phone book for junk yards allot of people who super charge cars also (not so coincidentally) crash them if they cant help you I bet they know where you can find someone who can.

1. Be careful when buying ANYTHING on eBay, especially something as important as performance mods on a car. Remember, one small thing goes wrong with a turbo, boom goes your engine.2. You might (probably) need to build up your engine to handle the boost, so also be careful with that.3. Turbos aren't cheap, and when buying a turbo, i'd recommend quality over price. Do some research on Google or automotive websites/forums before buying your turbo or any other mods.4. Do a little research on your car, and then continue with everything else.5. Assuming you know nothing (or know little) on turbos, learn how one works, see a few examples, and learn to notify a bad one when you see one.6. Please don't rice out your car. I know this has nothing to do with a turbo, but PLEASE keep your CRX nice and clean. =)
