    Well, you asked alot of questions, but I can tell you that if you want decent power a turbo is going to be the best way to get there.

    The GSR is a great platform for boost, a decent turbo setup will cost you about 3k when all is said and done.

    Going N/A to get you the same power is going to cost you TWICE as much.

    Pick a power goal, say 250 whp, and get the parts together to get there.

    The P28 is from the 92-95 Civic. It's meant for the single-cam D16Z6 motor, and it's OBD1. The reason people like to use them is because they're very easy to chip and tune for use with any kind of Honda motor setup.

    As for the Type R cams, I'd say skip them if you're planning on going turbo. They're meant for a high-compression N/A screamer (which is what the Type R is). If you want new cams, look into turbo cams. Lots of companies make them, like Crower for example.
