Default Honda civic engine upgrades?

WHat are some upgrades I can do to the engine of a 98 Honda Civic LX? I already upgraded the intake system and I am going to do the exhaust. WHAT is there I can do for it?

Also what other car engines can fit into my 98 Honda Civic LX that will make it run faster? Does it have to be the same year of whatever engine I get?

look up mini-me swaps, those are generally the easiest engine mod to get more actual power. you'd basically take the top end off your engine and swap it with the top end from a better engine.

The cars that will swap with your EK civic are civics, integras, preludes, and del sols. IIRC the Acura RSX as well. They don't have to be the same year but they should be the same generation or else things get more difficult. Here's a good batch on info that will explain all the engine options:

Get a electric supercharger and boost it, it'll put 5 psi into your engine and you make everyone look like their stsndibg still
