start by getting rid of the Honda, but if you have to keep it, youo want to put on both. If you increase you intake flow you will want to increase your exhaust flow. If you can absolutley only afford one, go with the exhaust.

Do them both, best bang for the buck. Increase air intake and increase the ability to exhaust. Winning combo.

I have a '03 civic ex with the AEM short air ram (cause the dyno was better than a Cold Intake) with the new Dry Filter. Totally recommend the Dry versus the Oiled version. I could feel the difference and sound is alittle louder too. I also have the Magna Flow complete catback system. It's not as loud as Skunk2 or an Apex system, but is well worth it. I did go to court about the sound but won the case and proved the sound isn't that bad.

When you are talking about induction (intakes) you must also look at exhaust. You have to look at the IN and OUT. They are a package deal. I say Do the cold air intake, as well as headers and cat-back exhaust.

Yes, best results come from CAI, with headers & exhaust. Denser air from CAI makes it preferable over short rams. Axle-back exhaust (i.e., performance mufflers) shown to be as good as cat-backs. The Civic DX is an economy car...intake/headers/exhaust won't add much; significant hp gains require forced induction.
