quit while you're ahead. unless you have an Si, it's really a waste to put this kind of money into a Civic. with displacement this small, any minor bolt-ons like a cold air intake, header, ecu chip, etc are going to give you a minimal power gain that you won't even notice(aside from the noise). the only real option you have to get significant power out one is through forced induction, but turbo kits usually cost well over a grand and sometimes they don't even include an intercooler, which usually adds on a few hundred more. as for top end, your car's speed governor is set and nothing can change that aside from an illegal program. once you get up to about 115-120(not sure the exact setting), your ECU cuts off the fuel supply to prevent the car from going any faster. considering an Si can run about 130-140, it's really a waste of money.

Same as any other car, intake header (downpipe only in this car) and exhaust.
