New to autox need advice

Hey guys, new member to forum looking for some advice. I have a 96 honda civic completely stock no mods....yet. im looking to replace motor and trans (over 200k) power adder like a turbo, suspension, etc. I dont need top of the line again im just looking for fun, and drive ability kinda best of both worlds. Vendor info would be greatly appreciated and any other info. Im lost when it comes to imports but willing to learn, i have engine knowledge, ive built a handfull of motors in the past from a flat 4 vw to v8 never a honda 4 cyl. Im terrible with wirring so a more plug and play approach would be best. Thank you for your help and advice in advance.

Re: New to autox need advice

currently, our vendor directory is empty... Otherwise, I would recommend someone from there.
our old vendor was more for 7th gen civics, so you are left with the usual skunk2, thmotorsports

For turbo, the biggest engine killer are cheap fuel management systems.
