You can but at low PSI levels but you still need a piggy back and bigger injectors I'd say maybe 5psi max!!! On stock internals

You realize a turbo requires you to replace the "header" anyway, right?

There's no better feeling than seeing something you made work

1998 Honda Civic EX (D16Y8) "The Daily Beater"
1985 Toyota Celica GT (7MGTE) "The Old Guy" SOLD
1991 Nissan 240SX (S13 Coupe) "The Money Pit" Sold to fund other projects
1994 Honda Civic EX (D16Z6) Soon to be "Turbo AutoCross Missile"

Oh u wanted full details. You need header, new exhaust 2.5" or bigger. Fuel pump is ok ours could handle up to 200hp. 5psi will net u around 150hp more or less depends on the tune. Fuel filter stays the same. Fuel rail is good. Injectors I would go with a set of 315s to be safe ( light green )

Before you turbo it, take the head off and check for "devil's fingernail scratches" on the block.
While you're in there, re-use the head gasket, you are going to disintegrate it anyway with the ebay turbo kit.
Also, the pistons that would come with the turbo if you bought a real kit, just throw them away, they won't fit in your block with a rod lodged in the cylinder wall.

And remember, building an engine for boost before boosting it is never a good idea. It isn't like an engine can throw a rod without being boosted, so go ahead and boost it anyway.

Yes you can turbo a stock 5sfe, i don't recommend it, but you can. only a low boost or you will screw up your block ( possibly more ).
you will also have to really fine tune a check for knock or other weird noises.
but from what you said here, i don't think your mechanic skills are good enough to do this.
just my 2 cents, i don't want to insult you, but rather save you a headache and wallet hole.

I agree with Old El Paseo. Kinda pointless to turbo that thing imo. I would rather blow my money on suspensions and handling. Then when that 5sfe blows, ITS SWAPPIN TIME
