Default Hi from New Zealand

Hi guys,
my name is Ressa and i come from New Zealand the land of Rugby World Champions!! (GO All Blacks!!!).
Anyway, i've own a few Hondas incl JDM EF3, JDM EG6, JDM EK9, JDM DA8 and mostly highly setup N/A that focus more of improving handling then power.
After the EK9, ive decided to call it a day as i need funds to pay for my wedding. Quit from building Hondas to building a family is a dramatic change as im sure most of you will understand the itch on your hands to make a come back on building a car.
Not long after that we need a family car. So i bought a JDM Honda Stream fitted factory with K20A3. It's so slow that i got sick of it and decided to do a K24A swap from Accord Euro (or TSX in US land).
Now, a few months ago i came across an uber MINT NZ new ED7 civic hatch that i just cannot pass it from my eyes. It had a minor smack on the front of it. Went and had a look, found out that the car had only a cosmetic damage. NZ$600 later, she's on my driveway.
Long story short after fixing it, i want more power!!!!
This will be the 1st time for me to drive/build a boosted Honda. Alot of research needs to be done as im so blind and noob when it comes to boost to the point where i didnt even understand the difference between the size and how boost works. So please excuse my noobness, i'll try to search as much as i can before i jump on the NOOB bandwagon.
My goal is to have as cheap as possible homemade turbo kits off OEM/2nd hand parts as im planning to leave it stock internally. Im not aiming for high HP, its just simply for fun and make the most of enjoying this little D16A7 thats only done 126k kilometres.
I'll post up more photos when the weather here is better.
