Im not a honda expert but you can look at honda forums im sure they have how to turbo it. I know someone that turboed his b16 engine and it was amazing. Honestly it costs a lot and you don't really need a turbo unless your racing people or want better gas mileage.

this is a hard question to answer because there are so many variations of turbo systems. first off i wouldn't get an ebay turbo unless its from a trustworthy company like garrett. there are alot of components to think about. first how much horsepower are you looking for? after you answer that then you pick out the turbo. then you have to get every thing else to support the turbo. you need an intercooler, boost controler, blow off valve, wastegate if the turbo doesn't have an internal one. thats just a minimum of things you will need. also after installation you will need to tune it.

power goals are really only needed for built engines. if you buy a "bolt-on" turbo kit it will be perfectly fine for a stock engine.

expect some modifications with an ebay kit. they say bolt on but they arent really. i have installed quite a few. dont be surprised if you have to find fittings, different couplers and clamps for the charge pipes and you will have to cut the chargepipes to fit properly. they are all too long as is.

you will need to get bigger injectors as well as chip the ecu and have it tuned. i reccomend using eclipse turbo injectors(DSM 450's). they are cheap and you can find them everywhere. you can find chipped ecu's all over the place and i even do an ecu exchange program.

Chances are pretty good that this idiot won't and can't turbo his car. If he can't even do the basic research to find out what is required to boost his car, he sure as hell won't have the ability to do any of the work.
