speed deff getting a new engine would help but that costs too much. Drivetrain system will improve acceleration as well as speed. Also for speed maybe a turbo kit.

air intake and fartcan is the basic stuff then maybe headers and do a little engine rebuild then get all the vtec stickers you can find and put those on you will go so much faster.

A couple of pretty inexpensive ways to improve speed and acceleration are either getting a cold air intake for your engine or getting a new exhaust system with anti-reversal headers and straight pipes.

When I had my 1990 Civic Si it had Jackson Racing headers wrapped in heat wrap, a custom straight through exhaust with an Ultra Flow Muffler, and a Jacobs high energy ignition which disabled the car when it was stolen becasue of a secret kill switch (I installed). Pedal to metal driving fun at 28 mpg! It felt fast enough to me!
