Default LS Turbo B18B1 CRX Si Build Up Suggestions

this is my set up, just got the car a couple of weeks ago:

CRX Si 1988
B18B1 Motor out of a 96 LS with about 90,000 miles
90-93 Tranny, Dizzy, Throttle Body, ECU
Stock Cat 2.25 cat back exhaust

now the turbo kit i have is the Apexi Ball Bearing turbo kit with the IHI ball bearing turbo. i have a front mount intercooler, bov, greddy turbo timer.

list of the stuff i am buying before i put the turbo kit on

- new clutch,prolly exedy stage 1 or 2
- fidanza 7.5 lb flywheel
- Apexi SAFC 2
- low compression headgasket
- blockguard
- 3 in exhaust
- darkstarsracing crossmember/traction bar
- drag radials on 14 in steelies

now what else can i do or get to safely run 10 psi without worrying at all. i really dont want to buy pistons because all i found were 9.0:1 pistons but the stock compression is 9.2:1 so i really dont wanna do that.

would converting to obd1 and runnin an obd1 teg ecu make any big difference before and after turbod?

you said you have 90-93 dizzy.ecu..etc..
Are you sure you dont have obd1 already because the 90-91 teg is obd0 but the 92-93 is obd1 ..
And I would only trust the safc for low boost because the thing takes away fuel and you dont want that to happen when you have a turbo pushing more air.
Look into uberdata 0bd1----turboedit for obd0....Its free..all you have to buy is the chip burner...Its similar to hondata without the price Click the image to open in full size.
..And when you get the turbo set-up on..the first thing you should do is have it towed to a reputable tuner..tuning is costly but its worth it..
