you can put a turbo on any car.you will need a turbo exhaust manifold,
turbo,oil supply line, wastegate,BOV,downpipe,intercooler,oil drain hose,
and an fuel system that can supply your turbo.

Heres a real funny video

VTEC stands for Very Torqueless Economy Car

Honda stands for Hold On Not Done Accelerating

Well, you CAN put a turbo on almost any motor (try turbocharging a radial!), but whether you should is another matter.
