Default 97 civic hb minime turbo or not?

Whats up HT! I have a 97 civic hb mini me d15 engine. Other than having a short ram intake everything else on the engine is stock. I am planning to install turbo on it with out doing or upgrading anything on the engine. I know it might come across to your mind why would i even want a turbo on just a stock engine. Well first i dont plan on racing my car i just wanted it for show and some peoject to do over the summer. If there is a way to put a turbo on with out upgrading anything please let me know how and what to buy... And also what is the good and bad on doing this.

Thank you

You'll have to upgrade things. no way around it

you'll need a stronger clutch and ARP headstuds at an absolute minimum.

not to mention a bigger fuel pump, injectors, a wideband, and a chipped ecu.
