Default '99 EX D16Y8 Build

Hey forum,
I'm really new to cars in general and I have a '99 Civic EX with a D16Y8 motor in it, almost completely stock and I was wondering what parts I would need specifically to build it up to the point that I could drop a turbo into it, thanks

You don't just drop a turbo in. There's tons of stuff to figure out. It's not so much building the motor that's the important part, you can boost a stock motor, it's having all the components to be able to control and regulate the added pressure and fuel properly.
