If you want a faster car, buy one, but there's nothing financially viable you can do to a 22 year old Honda that'll improve it.

The words 'polishing' and 'turd' come to mind

That would cost around 3 times what the car is worth and it would be way way cheaper to get a better car

Yes you could. Anything is possible, but unless you have all the parts just laying around I wouldn't recommend it because it would be stupid expensive. Buy a 300zx twin turbo version if you want a fun affordable turbo vehicle

Spend a few thousand and maybe. Likely to go bang at any time. Honda were good at production engineering - in other words this car is as well engineered as it needs to be but go beyond that and there is trouble - especially after 22 years !
