At that age you won't make a profit unless all the mods you put in are free and you do it yourself, the car is way to old to turn a profit

The best possible thing you can do to that car is to NOT put in a "Stage 2" clutch or an intake. There is no such thing as a "Stage 2" of any part. What is a stage 2? Its something that sounds 'super-cool' and all the kids will buy it. Some reputable parts are offered as a "Stage 2" like turbocharger kits for instance. This is a huge kit with numerous upgrades which add onto upgrades you already purchased.There is no point in putting any kind of a performance clutch in a 1991 Civic with no mods whatsoever. You'll need a stock clutch or near-stock clutch to get by. Otherwise your wasting your money for nothing other to brag to people that you spent a ton of money on a worthless part. You have no mods that will put any strain on your transmission whatsoever, therefor eliminating the need for any transmission modifications.Also, don't put the stupid intake on the car. Your car has 190,000 miles. You should spend the money on a good fluid change, new radiator, new belts, tires, and engine cleaning. If you want to do anything to the intake, purchase a good K&N air filter. It'll be a nice clean air filter that never goes bad and will actually help your car breath a little better than the cruddy paper filter that's inside the airbox right now.If you want to sell the car down the road, don't put stupid mods like that into it as it only deteriorates from the cars value. Do necessary maintainance on the car to make sure the motor and the transmission last long enough for you to actually sell it. Fix any dents or rust and get parts repainted if the paint is in poor condition. Its much nicer having a car that runs great and looks in good condition rather than toting around a garbage beater with $500 in parts that do nothing for the car.
