Ok, I have a 2000 civic SI. I was wondering of putting a turbo in there, but I saw the kits and they are very expensive. So I thought maybe I can make my own. I can learn very quickly where stuff goes and everything, but I dunno what stuff to use!!! In other words, can anybody please explain to me what type of turbo I can put into my SI? Has anyone here put a turbo into an SI? Please help!!

add wastegate, boost control and downpipe to list above.
great, inexpersive fuel managemnet setup is a v/s-afc (the hack sucks, just wire it up like the instructions say and put some check valves on so your ecu doesnt see boost) and some dsm 450cc injectors. You can proly get those two for about 250-350 on dsmtrader.com.
A t3/t4 seems to be the way to go for the turbo on a b16 but you could always source another used turbo off the millions of turbo cars out there if youre going mad cheap.
DONT RUN TOO MUCH BOOST OR TIMING ADVANCE!!!

don't worry about the boost controler and wastegate, cause chances are if you are building a cheap kit (i.e. junkyard kit) your proly going to have an internal wastegate already, and with that you aren't goin to need the controler unless your building your internals so they can handle the build up

on homemadeturbo.com the problem with building your own turbo they say is you can't keep your a/c (well from the cars they spooled anyways)so if you care about being cool don't do it (unless you live in alaska or something) buy a kit and if no one makes one retrofit it

On homemadeturbo.com, they put the turbo on the driver's side of the manifold, which is different than most after-maker manifolds and turbo kits. They did this because it is easier to run the charge-pipes on the driver's side and remove the a/c. It can be done either way tho.
