Current Parts list I'm looking at :
Engine - D16z6
Building the head first
Comp Cam
Crower 26mm exhaust valves
Crower 30mm Intake Valves
Skunk2 Springs & Titanium retainers

*Any other upgrades I should do to the head feel free to let me know .

* All Machining will Be done by me at my work

As for the bottom End

I Plan on going with CP Pistons and Eagle Rods

Which is where my question comes in I want to turbo but it is not in the current budget and I dont want to get lower compression ratios if I'm gonna stay N/a for a while .
So will 10:5:1 Ratio pistons work for now and with a turbo later ? I only plan on pushing 12 lbs of boost max .
If it helps I'm only looking to push max 350hp to the wheels

Any Help would be greatly appreciated

Just from what I've heard around the scene. I personally have no experience with a turbo I've been trying to learn but more of a hands on learner and 12 is just the max I'd want to go. I'd rather be closer to 8 lbs if that is what hits my targeted goal of 300 to 350.
I hope I understood your question enough to answer it...sorry if I didnt .
If it helps I plan to use a
CX racing Turbo kit

I went with Skunk2 Alpha Rods and NPR PM6 pistons and clevite bearings for the bottom end. https://www.cxracing.com/turbo-kit/turbo-kit-honda-acura/turbo-kit-honda-acura-civic/turbo-kit-honda-acura-civic-sohc-d15-d16-d18/TRB-KIT-CIVIC-D-CAST-IC0051-KIT
With that kit, I swapped the manifold for a DNA motoring ramhorn, I am pushing 17 psi to hit near 350 whp.
Not sure if CX has ANY kit that will put you to that goal on 12 psi, let alone 8.

psi from a t28 isn't the same as the psi from a 6262......find out what turbo youre going to use and read the compressor map. your "12psi" may not even be near the efficiency island

So after understanding what I can about flow charts ratios and compressor maps ....(Math has never been a strong suit) I'm looking at needing a 50 trim turbo. That trim should (if my math and understanding was correct ) put me between 250 and 300whp which is around exactly where I would like to be

Who is tuning the ECU? And what ECU hardware are you going to get? High comp turbo is doable but a lot more important to get your tune perfect.

Port your oil pump (even though Z6 bottom ends are strong enough already)

I wouldn't spend money on the valves but it's your money. Crower is a good company regardless.

The thing about the CX turbos is they do not have compressor maps and they give extremely VAGUE info about them. You'll need to take measurements of the inducers and exducers after you get it just to get an idea of what you have. I would think from my experience with them, the kit you chose **MAY** get you close to your goal.
I'll agree with Cyanide also; Crower has good stuff but if you're sticking with stock sized valves, just grab some OEM or AutoZone/O'Reilley/Napa, etc.. Keep em simple if standard size.
As far as porting/shimming of the oil pump, anything <500 hp is totally unnecessary. 500-600 is HIGHLY recommended. >600 is a definite need.

I'm still looking around Louisville for a tuner
If you will be running a management system; S300, Neptune RTP, etc, and can not find a tuner close to you, phearable.net offers an E-tune service that I myself have used. I'm in a similar situation with no tuner close to me that deals with my Neptune. There IS a dyno shop an hour away though. Lol. Anyhow.. Phearable was able to get a nice tune dialed in and the process itself was pretty simple. Once completed, I was able to get a couple dyno pulls in and make a few tweaks. Overall, it was successful. Lol.
So, if nothing else, that is certainly an option.

If u run a mad fat cam you can run mad compression and blow fire at track days since half ur load goes out the exhaust valves but bc of that ur dynamic cr will be chill so u can get that dyno guy to get it to run on pump gas.

Mad fat cam is key and the bigger the turbo the better. Gooogle anything you dont get 100%. Its great to learn bro knowledge is power
