Is it possible, and if possible, smart to put a low compression turbo in a 1.7 non-vtech engine?

I have a 2002 LX civic and it has no power, id like to get a little extra get to it and Ive always heard that at low spool a turbo boosts economy.

It is possible to put a low compression turbo as it is viewed as economical but there are some disadvantages associated with it. They include less off-boost power, less throttle response and less power increase from cams. A mechanic would be well versed to explain more to you.
