"I dont wanna put any money into it"

So give up now.

Speed costs money. There is NO negotiation on that equation.

Oh, wait. You could remove the entire interior from the car. Carpet, seats, dash (leave the gauges), everything...that would make you about 1% faster.

If you have no mechanical experience then i'm afraid the answer is no.

Everything costs money unfortunately however, you should look at changing the air filter to a sports filter or re-mapping the engine. Apart from those kinda things you wont get a lot out of the car, they engines are usually tuned by Honda to meet the expectations of the car so even with a 2.0l engine without proper mapping, filters, exhaust systems and computer chips you wont get much out of it sorry :/

sorry man, there no way to look at your car and make it faster. You are going to need to put money into, and a good amount of money as well. Either start saving, or enjoy it how it is.

Ha, if only it were as easy as not putting money into it.

Sorry man, but if you want power it's gonna cost you $$$ and by the time you actually start feeling any gains you're going to be at least $1,500 in the hole.

Gut your whole interior and sell it all.
