Default new swap

ok so i used to post on here a while back
i used to have a 91 si hatch back untill i got t-boned by a buss lol
ya kno. but for now i just picked up a 94 civic hatch and get this
it is the cx version. i didnt even know honda made that ****lol
but o well heres my plans. im buying my new head swap and intake manifold
im going to go ahead and get si head and a 92-95 ex manifold with a gsr throttle body
im going to do all the normal things like gaskets and such. then im also going to go ahead and boost the
single cam with a t3/t4 turbo and run about 8lbs of boost mayby just 5-8 not sure yet.
so i was just wondering if this was a good way to go because im getting everything really cheap so.
i was wondering if there is anything else ne one can think of that i might need for this swap or any suggestions for when
im doing this also i'll post before and after vids this summer when its Complete thanx for any help guys

i assume when you say si head you are talking about a z6 head. I would look for a smaller turbo more like a t25 or a t3 for the gains you are looking for i would say that the smaller turbo would be much more reliable and require less fm.
