That motor has pretty high compression so you'll need some good fuel management to go much over 6 psi. Nitrous is a much cheaper initial investment. Turbo is much more fulfilling. Either way you need to get on a honda forum and do some searching. And don't buy cheap ebay turbo's.

If you want to boost your lude, you can only run 8psi on a stock engine block. If you want to run higher boost you would have to resleeve the block in order to make it run. If you don't you will properly for sure blow your engine. Don't forget all the internals like the rods,pistons,retainers,springs and so on. Its alot more work to boost a h22a then a b engine.
