Go to Honda-tech.com

I'v seen a couple of turboed 2002's. As far as I know it's pretty complicated. It's not as easy as bolting a turbo kit onto a eg or ek. A car magazine did one a while ago. It was pretty involved. Major modifications have to be done to your fuel system because you have a return-less fuel system.

IMHO you are better starting off with a better platform. Use the 2002 as a daily driver, and buy a 92 hatchback for a project car.
