Full Body kit = +10 Hp $15

Spinning Rims = +5Hp $100

Sound system = +15 Hp $45

Consider getting bucket seats, and racing seat belts.

If you have already upgraded the exhaust system you are well on your way to achieving a more powerful ride.

I've asked the same question before.

All depends on the model and Engine you have

For instance i have a 2000 Honda Civic Si (B16A2) DOHC VTEC

i have DC Ceramic Headers. AEM V2 Intake. Skunk 2 Exhaust system. every little bit helps.

Upgraded Camshafts will make a noticeable difference too.

Different brands make a difference as well. Just don't ones that look pretty and sound cool if you're looking for actual more power. Do the research on each product.

LMFAO @ Under the Bridge - I haven't laughed like that in a while xD

Anyways, back to the question. If you have a single cam engine..don't waste your time putting money on a weak motor. Even with multiple mods it won't even come close to a B-series engine (stock mind you). Not trying to be mean if you do, just being honest.

However, if you do have a B-series type motor (LS-VTEC, GSR, B20-VTEC, Type R), the bolt-ons you add to it won't be considerably noticeable, but they will help. For example; if you were to put intake ($50+), headers ($150+), intake manifold & throttle body ($200+) , fuel rail & gauge ($150+) you would be gaining roughly around 20-30hp max. Also stay away from cheap brands..

Best thing to do is spend a little more on internals. Cam Shafts ($400+) and Pistons($500) would give a HUGE hp gain.
