How much power are you running? I myself am going with an ACT 6 puck sprung w/ACT Street Lite Flywheel which is 12lbs. And I'm gonna be turbo too. Check out ACT / Advanced Clutch Technology®. They don't have it listed for our cars but just search under 06 RSX Type S, same clutch and flywheel.
Turbo's and lightened flywheels don't work well, you'll drop out of boost between shifts. Most of us FI guys are doing just fine on the stock clutches.

I have a CC stage 2 clutch and CC 11lb flywheel. It's way more than enough for your application. I just have bolt-ons. The clutch pedal is adjusted as far as throwout can go and it still grabbed at the bottom of the pedal when i got it out the shop.

Remember, one brand's "stage 1, 2 3 or whatever" dont compare to the next brand.. so saying you want a "stage 3" clutch means absolutely nothing..

Select your clutch based on torque, and driving habits.. nothing else. "Stages" are just a marketing ploy.

Stay AWAY from ACT clutches for the new Si. Stage 3 is has too much spring pressure and will blow the master cylinder.

Additionally the geometry of stage 3 clutch from ACT leaves too much distance between the throwout bearing and the spring forks for the master cylinder to overcome and you will have to put the pedal all the way to the floor and even then the clutch will not fully disengage.

Some people will adjust the pedal but this will only mask the issue, create a preloaded situation and cause the master cylinder to blow out sooner.

and as trboCIVIC stated pick the clutch that matches your power.
