Default d15b7 build

here it goes just last week i bought a d15b7 from a friend for the tranny for dirt cheap.... the motor burns oil like a ****. the tranny is going in to my civic as we speak... so my question is since i have this motor what are some good parts to build it for turbo ie: pistons, rods, valve springs and cam. i cant save money worth a ---- so i am ruling out a b motor swap unless i win the lotto. any help would be great... thank you

Your going turbo right? If so get yourself a new set a Y8 pistions hear http://www.hondaautomotiveparts.com/...NKSHAFT-PISTON
almost $40 a piston
next sence the engine burns oil i'd take it to a repuitable machine shop and get them to check if the block is egged, if so you'll have to overbore it, if not get the blocked honed and resurfaced (if needed), next goto exospeed.com and get yourself all the vlavetrain parts you can afford, a stage 2 regrind is the best cam their IMO, get the rods shotpeened for extra strenght, and their ya go, a good streetable D15

total cost will prboally be around 1000-1500 depending on what you get. i got a IHI RBh5 V11 spec turbo from a junkyard yesterday for $35, the cool thing is that the turbo has less then 20k miles on it and is in perfict contition! i put some grease on it and said "it probally has a blown seal" so he let it go for 35 bones! oh if you get a HF, Std. manifold dont pay more then $40 for it
