Default Civic/junkyard turbo help

Hey guys I have been searching the web for info on cheap homemade/junkyard turbo setups, and have been directed to this great site!

Heres a little background. I drive a 1994 Honda Civic Ex, d16z6, and an m24a automatic transmission (injury, cant really drive a manual anymore )

Anyways, I was wondering if you guys could help me try to slightly boost my car. As of now I am thinking of just using a cheap DSM t25 or 14b turbo, dsm side mount, dsm bov and dsm injectors, since they can all be had cheap and I am not looking to make crazy power, just thinking a 50hp boost would be fun.

What exhaust manifold can I use with a dsm turbo? I know I'd need a custom made downpipe, just curoius about the manifold. Is there anything I am missing (other than chip/tune p28, and headstuds?)

I am looking for atleast a 50hp boost over stock, at 6-8psi I suppose.

Also, Is it possible to retain A/c and PS on the 5th gen civic?

Any advice would be great! Thanks guys!

there ALWAYS a way. it just depend how much time you are ready to spend.

just an exemple , there is my 99 accent manifold. with Scoupe turbo manifold i need to reloc the rad and fan or get small turbo like T15.
but i have a T28 so i needed to modify my stock manifold welding t25/t28 glange on it. everything is in place now. i also could reloc the alternator but its not really needed in this case but it would be easy.



and here how it fit ( with downpipe )



if you have question , ill try my best to answer you.

keeping your stock manifold may not work... im far to be a honda fan so i rarely touch honda.

Most of the aftermarket Honda manifolds out there (there's a lot of cheap iron castings out there that could work OK) use a T3 flange, but I think the old Greddy kit manifolds used a DSM flange. Here's one on eBay right now that looks right:

Any other ideas for off the shelf manifolds that I can use with a dsm t25/14b and retain ac and ps? Everything is leading me to think that the Greddy "kit" is the only way....
