We've done installs of stuff like this over the years. On average, the install on something like this is a nightmare. I think the last Integra LS swap into a Civic that we turbo'ed with this kind of a kit ($900 on ebay) ended up costing something like $2500 to install because we basically had to custom fab everything. I would expect to spend a solid week doing the install, and that's if you know what you are doing with fab work. Or if you are going to have someone else do it, you will pay $2-3k for it to be installed.... or you'll not have a good install if it's cheap.. because it's not easy.

The turbos are known for burning oil btw. And while the LS Integra turbo setup that we did was fast as snot, it didn't last. The car sits now because a couple of the original welds are cracking (not anything we did) and the guy doesn't have the money to fix it.... and he doesn't know how to do it himself, and he now understands the level of fab required to do this sort of thing.
