I dont thing anybody is going to give you a detailed write up on how to turbo your car. There is alot involved and you should do some research. What I know is the K series engines can handle alot of boost without tampering with the internals. Something to stay away from is ebay turbo kits. Its like lance armstrong riding a Target bike. It wont last and its dangerous! If they make it for your car i would suggest Turbonetics kits. Turbos shorten the life of engines. A good tune is the key to unlock all the power and to keep the engine safe. Do some research on k series engines and turbo. Rsx, civics, accords and tsx use K series engines so you should be able to find a good amount of information. Good luck

stay away from ebay kits. they sucker you into buying their "kits" cuz of the low price. in acutality ebay kits are not researched or are they designed to be used with any car they sell kits for. also those kits are missing key components or they are missing lots of hardware to properly install a turbo kit. which ends up costing the consumer 500-1500 more to put one of their so call kits on.if you want a good turbo kit i suggest looking at greddy/grex, hks, rev-hard, turbonetics, innovative turbo systems, and so on..... these companies are very well known and do a lot of research and developing of their system to match what vehicle they are for. if you cannot find a kit from a good well known company i suggest going to your local tuning shop and having one custom fabricated to your car.and like dude above me said....there is a lot that is involved with turbocharging any honda. if you dont know what your doing it could prove absolutly devastating to your motor/car/wallet.
