Default Honda boost myths

Okay so I went onto a DSM forum to ask some questions about the stock specs of a Garrett T25, thinking they would be so familiar with them. I knew I would get lambasted for driving a Civic and wanting to turbo a Honda.... but soon it got off topic and most of them were telling me why it was a bad idea and to just get a DSM. Much of that doesn't surprise me, but their ideas on turbo'ing a Honda seemed a bit off. Here are some quotes:

"My friend has a 96 Honda Civic DX with a 1.6 SOHC motor from a 94. He has been running 5 psi of boost off a T25 turbo using a 2G stock SMIC. It is possible to do and we are probabably going to do another one. It is pretty jury rigged. Running boost past that isn't possible without rebuilding the motor. He is using a MBC and I am not sure what he did for fuel control but I know he does have a AFC."

"Do you REALLY think cars with 11.5:1 compression were meant to be turbocharged?" (9.2:1, moron)

"you dont want to bother with putting a t25 on your civic...
and you can MAYBE hold 4 psi on THAT motor, sorry"

Okay so I know I haven't done any turbo setups myself, but from the FAQ on the site and other posts here, don't these guys seem to have a pretty ditorted view of boost on a Honda engine?

dsm owners are complete dicks when it comes to turbo'ing any motor but theres. especially civics.

turbo your car with a t25 meet up with them and beat them in a race. show them.

the 4g63 has potential... but thats pretty much it... DSM really only made that engine good (not that good, but it works).... the 2nd gen one sucks... and the shitty 1.8 sohc blows *** (its like 92hp) my d16z6 spanks its ***... and astock 4G63 too. but fixed up and turboed out... they are pretty stiff competition... but those ******* do get cocky... just let em know whats up....

Yeah I actually think a turbo DSM is a pretty good performance for the money, and they're not too unreliable as far as turbo cars come. I may have one some day too, but I don't appreciate what jerks they all were when I seriously just wanted some information. That's usually a decent forum to go to... it's a shame that i can have some respect for their cars but they would never consider having any respect for mine. Even if I did beat them in a turbo Civic.

yeah I didn't even mention to them that most guys on this site are actually using "old" CRX engines, they thought I was referring to newer civic engines. Mine is a civic d15b7, so it's 9.2:1... I had no idea what your CRX engine specs were
