I'll buy your extra cam gear and header if it's cheap since you have two of each.

wow well that is really open ended, first off what are your power goals and will the block stay stock or is it stock currently? I would stay away from the ebay turbo kits unless its a drag or other reputable kit (not ssauto/xspower/vecco). Also have you converted to obd-1? That'll make tuning much easier and give you more and better tuning options.

I would suggest if you are staying with a stock block, build the kit yourself its a great learning experience and then you get exactly what you want.

once we get some more info we probably could help you a little more

10 seconds, singlecam, and supercharched shouldnt be used in the same sentence as street legal. I'd have to see some proof sir

do a google search for ssauto or xspower and you will see. the mani/DP are made of super thin metal that cracks after little time at all, the flanges are normally warped to shit, and the customer service sucks.

the turbos have a similar history, compressor housing cracking and splitting in half, oil seals leaking within 50 miles, getting excessive shaftplay with little use.

seriously, read around a little bit about the company and you will see

I think he was making a joke out the plurality of his mods. Headers and Cam gears, not trying to buy.;)

The SOHC supercharged CRX is not doing 10 second quarters, 10 second eighths maybe, but no way is he pulling 10 second quarters.

SSauto is crap. Nothing fits, everything is very poor quality, and do you know what happens when a part of a turbo setup goes wrong? Lots of other things go wrong too! You don't have a clue what you're doing, you do realize that your header will not be used on a turbo setup correct? You need to take a lot of time and a lot of money to make a good turbo setup, and most of all, you need a lot of knowhow and research under your belt. Without it, you're pretty much fucked.

I'd suggest researching a long time before you actually start building a setup.
