Default Hondata vs HKS turbo kit?

I want to turbo my crx, its stock right now other then my intake. My friends dad can install it but I jest need the parts. He said I can run 6psi of boost with stock internals. Whats better for my crx....HKS turbo kit (used) untuned. Orrrrrr cheap ebay kit with tuned hondata ecu and dsm injecotrs??

NEITHER. Boost isn't cheap. You need a good kit AND tuning. If you try and run a boosted car without proper tuning, you will without a doubt destroy your motor.

On the flip side, I've literally seen people install the ebay turbo kit and have the junk made-in-china turbos fall apart on the dyno. Can be really dangerous for the car.

If you are only gonna run in 6psi, the safer and cheaper way is to put a supercharger and it will give you 7psi on stock engine with no harm at all.

you should actually modify the internals to be safe and not blow your motor up, but i would get the hks turbo kit, or a custom hks turbo with proper tuning etc.
