I want to turbo charge it considering ive been told that they dont make superchargers for the 7th gen civics.... i need to know what all is going to be involved in it pistons cams crank all that sort of thing considering im fairly new at all this. ill also kinda need to know where about i can go to get some of this stuff if ill need to order it online or if i can go down to my local parts store and have them order it.

Go w/ a kit. From the info about your experience I'm gonna say have someone install it. At first no need to get pistons cam(singular) or crank, run no more than 6-7 psi. Pick up some kinda fuel management and get it tuned. You're looking in the range of 4000-5000 at most.

4-5k includes the kit, feul management, and tune too. greddy kits come with feul management and are basically plug and play. look for a (real) greddy kit on ebay..pete got his for 1300 shipped.

kewl kewl um ive been told that i can run like 6-8 psi now with the internals that are in there im just looking for a bit more out of it and as far as having someone do it for me thats not gonna happen. Since ive started this project ive done everything myself and am really enjoying the learning oppertunity ill do the work myself but thank you for giving me some direction as to where to go. This information will help a lot might take me some time to do it all but it will be well worth it Ty all again
