Default Is this a good turbo kit for my B16A2!?

I got a 2000 civic Si(B16A2) stock and am going to be boosting it. Im gonna be runing stock inter,but do have planes to put in low comp pistons later.Im also going to run low boost (5-7) psi since am on stock. My Question is (1) Is this kit pretty good? (2)which turbo size should I go with bcuz Im thinking about geting this turbo with that kit. (3) what else do I need with this kit? Thats all for now, thanks.. Juan

treadstones are good turbo kits. they use turbonetics turbos blow off vlaves and waste gates. i would hold off on getting a bigger turbo untill you have more internal upgrades. the turbo that comes with it is going to give you a very nice gain and is balanced to be a quick spooling turbo along with good power. bigger turbos give lag and could hurt the engine by making to much power. your going to need fuel, ignition, and management. you'll need bigger injectors 370cc or maybe a little bit bigger fuel rail, fuel pressure regulator is a must. walbro 255 fuel pump as far as fuel. ignition better plugs ( a step colder would be better.) and better wires. and something like greddy e manage or if you want to spend big bucks AEM EMS stand alone fuel management.

That is a good turbo(t/3-t/4). Just make sure u dont run too much boosted or u could blow a head gasket and other parts, until u lower compression. i think that b-16 engine has a compression 12:1 but not sure, which is high risk when boosting that engine. my friend had to learn the hard way. he blown 3 head gaskets b4 putting in pistons,sleeves.Try to get a turbo that has ball bearings instead of dry bearings which can destroy ur turbo under too much pressure.All have upgrade ur fuel management and tune it.
