You have a 2001 or 2002 Civic, right? I'm not positive, but I believe that the IB turbo crate motor is for the previous generation Civic. To answer your question - building your motor for a turbo application will more than likely reduce the compression ratio. Without a turbocharger, less compression will mean less power. So you would see a power decrease with lower compression and no turbo.
