i have a 2002 Honda accord 3.0 v6 and i wanted to put a turbo in it. what all would i need to get with the turbo so i wouldn't blow my engine or anything. for example a exhaust manifold. i wanted to turn it into a tuner car and make it nice looking i know the engine will die one day but ill just replace it but if you could help me with items i would need that would be great.

comptech used to make a supercharger for your car. not sure if they still offer it. more reliable than a turbo

Tossing a turbo on a high mileage engine to make a "tuner car" is not a good idea. You really should do a build for a turbo if you want it done correctly.

If you ask these kind of questions then you have no clue how involved something like this is and I don't mean that as a put down. You need to seek out a shop that will custom make a turbo setup and build your engine for it in the first place. Ten Grand might cover it with the exception of the tuning required. Lots and lots of research and money is required for this kind of a project since it's all 100% custom. The exhaust manifolds alone must be custom made depending on the type/pressure, and make of turbo......and that depends where it will be mounted. This is not something you just buy parts for and "put a turbo in it".
