you need an engine management and take it to a tuner and have it tuned after u install the turbo kit.

You can get arp's, fresh headgasket, oil/boost gauges, shimmed oil pump, decent street tune for $200, and deal with all the other issues from someone else's hmt kit all for about 175hp...

Or spend about $1500 for an LS/vtec swap.

HMT kits are only for people that can diagnose and fix their own problems, not for turbo n00bs like you. No offence, but it would not be a good plan for you to boost your motor "on the cheap".

you need to do a lot more research before you turbo your car its not something that ya just jump into without having a lot more info than you currently have.
