depending on what stage cams you get you're gonna want to get it tuned after you get the cams, then tuned again when you get the turbo put on.

so if I were you I would buy the hondata ECU before or with the cams, and get it tuned when you put the cams on. it's gonna be cheaper to buy the turbo parts separate, and you'll be able to customize your setup to exactly how you want it.
you'll find this useful for your turbo plans: https://www.hondacivicforum.com/m_400322/tm.htm
