you can turbo anything, if you want to run 10-12 daily you would prolly need 8.5:1 c/r pistons and upgraded rods

and its vtec, not v t e c h

you can run 12psi on 10:1 comression as long as you have good fuel managment like standalone with good tuning. You can blow a bullet proof motor without tuning.

How much power are you looking to make?
Pick a hp number not a psi number.
You can run 10psi easily on that engine if you have the rite set-up.

you can leave your motor stock if your goals are only 150-200whp

Get yourself a t3 (.42/.48) turbo
turbo manifold,intercooler and hondata with some 450cc + injectors.
You should be safe up to about 10psi (or about 175whp)
Don't forget the other stuff like charge pipes,bov,wg,etc etc etc. I just didn't want to make a list.

you wont need a wastegate, t3's are internal wastegate
You still need a wastegate :p
I know that they are internally gated, but you can still switch to external if you like. I just didn't want to get to indepth with the list so I figured that I'd throw that on there so some smartass didn't hop on and say "you forgot a wg". ;)
While we're at it don't forget oil feed and drain lines, colder spark plugs, patience, time, Blah blah blah
:D

you dont need a wastegate to run a t3 turbo, it comes with one already. if you want to up it to 10, you buy a boost controller

Take a look at where he is located: Australia, thats why it probably has a different engine code from what we are used to seeing in the U.S. Your motor is probably similar to the D16y7.

Anyways, if your car doesn't have VTEC, don't worry about it if your going to boost, believe it or not, its actually easier to tune a non-VTEC than a VTEC car...
