Default New to Forced Induction

Hello All....so I have a 98 Civic Coupe with a d16y7 all stock....It's a DD for me...and It's in really decent shape....So The headers are cracked, and the exhaust has a small leak all of a sudden as well...The headers are beyond welding...and the exhaust really isn't that big of a leak to fix....So getting to my point...i'm going to replace the headers and probably throw a new exhaust on as well anyway, and I have a Y8 Intake manifold that I'm going to put on eventually, so I thought why not I look into getting a small Turbo...Now like i said it;s a DD and I really am not looking for anything over 220....200 would be sufficient. I have tried to do some research, and I have seen this Greddy mentioned a few times-TD04H_16T. I think that also if I put the y8 injectors which are 240cc if I'm not mistaken in the y7 I have which are 180cc will that be enough to support my setup?....I want something quick spooling low end power....I'm not drag racing at night, I just want a little extra ponies during the day, I.E. pull out into traffic beat a red light....just run up and down my local highway once and a while....now i think the Greddy TD04H_16T has an internal gate...and all I really know is that it looks like a dinky little flap to me....but if I run higher boost will that not make the flap have less stress?....I have also heard mention of a stock nissan turbo that may suit my needs.....If anyone can shed some light on this idea of mine I would appreciate it....I know that I would have to step down to OBD-1 and get fuel maps burned on among other things.....I also don't want a loud 4" exhaust so every cop in the world will pull me over....thanks again for any input...Here's what she looks like...

I wouldn't use the 240 cc/min injectors for more than 150 hp on a turbo application.

now i think the Greddy TD04H_16T has an internal gate...and all I really know is that it looks like a dinky little flap to me....but if I run higher boost will that not make the flap have less stress?
Not necessarily. Keep in mind that higher boost means more pressure in the exhaust and higher flow rates. Often this requires more flow through the wastegate, not less. I wouldn't expect the wastegate flap to break.
