Question N/A 1.6L prefabbed turbo kits.... HELP

ive seen some good deals on greddy turbo kits. I've done a complete tear down of my 92, short of pulling the motor which will be done this month. im going to be buying a turbo kit same day as buying a new motor, what are some good reliable choices that i can build on? this is NOT going to be a track car! possibly some autocross but for now just wanna go fast around town.
wanna push around 8psi ive got a lightweight fidanza flywheel for the 1.8 and a stage1 clutch going to do the 1.8 rear end swap i have no clue what to look for in a turbo kit or what i need to go with it i know more fuel but thats it.

If you plan to buy a motor then go for a 1.8 swap. Next pick how much work/hassles you want to deal with. If this is low then look for a kit like Begi or FM (Last time I was around this forum FM was looked down upon). If you dont go some sort of Standalone ECU for your car this entire forum will yell at you, so snag a MS or whatever flavor of ECU you like. Read up on everything before you jump in else you will have lots of hassles/frustrations.

Are you sure about that? How sure? ARE YOU ******* SURE?!!??!?!
If so, a 1.6 will be fine for a street car, and 1.6 specific turbo parts can be had for cheap in the classifieds due to people dumping money into BP's.

Used Begi/FM stuff is fine. DO NOT look at Greddy hardware.
