Me being a Honda nut-bag I might help you here a bit.
The B18c1 GS-R motor is an excellent, fun and strong motor. The head on it flows a bit more than the B18b head and has vtec. The compression is also a bit higher, which doesn't exactly help in turbocharging, but we can work with it. I've noticed on GS-R motors you CAN run safely 7psi (no MORE than 7psi) on a fully stock engine with no ill-effects on the engine majorly. A turbo-kit is what you'll need.
I recommend the Drag Gen 3 kit with the T3/04e turbo. This i've noticed to be an EXCELLENT turbo for street/strip use. Isnt harsh at all and spool time is usually quick. This should make you go from around 145ish fwhp to around 215-230fwhp with this kit bolted up and having a new exhaust @ 7psi. The only thing that doesnt come in the kit that i would deem needed is new injectors (440's will do fine and cost about maybe $400-$500). If you have any-more questions let me know.
