not really, when an engine is going to be turboed it needs to be mod in many ways (if you're gonna do it right) because of the higher pressures going into the combustion chamber.

E.G. stronger head gasket. better head design, intercooler in throttle body, new MAP sensor etc.

You can slap a turbo on anything. For stock if you was to slap on a turbo most you would even want to push is like 4 psi and you wont even notice the turbo. If you do boost the stock engine on that accord more or less something is going to break or blow. You must do internal work before boosting any engine. Some motor can go stock turbo but that accord isnt made for stock turbo. Either spend money on doing internal work or swap the engine for something that can handel the turbo.
