Thinking of buying this turbo for my 92 prelude si. I have some questions.?

Ok I have a 92 prelude si. It is automatic with 164,000 miles on it. I posted a question up on a prelude forum asking for suggestions on performance parts to get without spending more than 800 to a thousand total. Someone posted a link to this:

They said I should definitely get this and I'll gain at least 200 hp. But where can I find a place that installs turbos. I can't do anything on a car... I really wish I could I love cars and the idea of fast car. How much would a mechanic or somebody charge to put this on and tune it nicely?































Also with all that increase in hp, wouldn't I need to get some other parts too? Would my stock prelude be able to handle a turbo like this with all that gain?































Any suggestions or answers will be appreciated. Thank you















Ok well scratch the turbo then. Someone on a prelude forum told me to look at that. I do want to do things that are non turbo oriented though. What kind of headers should I get? I've also been looking at AEM cold air intake kits? Any reccomendations? Also I have a full Ractive exhaust that came with my car but the stock exhaust is installed. Is this a good exhaust system? Can I gain any power with it?

also, would that be a good idea or no?

dont get that kit,even if you where to invest in a real turbo kit itd cost you about $1500 plus if you wanted to run more that 4 to 6 psi you would have to get forged internals which will cost you a bit ,plus getting the kit installed properly would cost you about another couple of grand,if you want more power get a new chrome air intake pipe,headers,manifold,lightend flywheel.hope that helps
