Ok, first let me say, wow, what i great forum! I've been reading tons of articles and posts and what not over the last few weeks, and I've got to say, I am very impressed with this place!
On to the question, I'm planning on (eventualy) putting a turbo on my 93 2 door coupe (not sure what motor is in it besides that its Vtec) and I have a few questions. First off, if I am going to get all the parts separatly, rather then buy a kit, what exactly do I need? I've been searching for a comprehensive list here, and elsewhere, and I can't seem to find what I am looking for. So, would someone be so kind as to tell me what exactly I need?
Secondly, is it worth it to invest in a decent Intake, header, and exaust if, a few months down the line, I plan on putting a turbo in?
To my knowledge (albeit limited) I am going to need a special header that will accept the turbo, which in turn acts as an intake, meaning, that if i purchage a new header/intake now, I'm going to have to take them back out in a few months and replace them. So, is it worth it to invest in a decent set now, or should i just wait and get them when I am ready to (have someone else..) install the turbo?

Thanks in advance for your responses!

welcome to the board.
dont buy any parts right now if you plan on turbocharging soon. you can get rims/tires/suspension but not an intake/header/exhaust yet.

here are some items that you'll need:

turbo manifold (header)
turbocharger
downpipe
intercooler
intercooler pipes
intercooler couplings
clamps
blow off valve
oil feed line
oil return line
injectors
fuel pump
air/fuel pressure regulator
boost controller
boost gauge
filter/intake
vacuum hoses
some type of engine management such as hondata, uberdata, crome or others.

i'm sure i probably left a lot of stuff out so please use the search function or search google and you'll find a lot more info.
