Default What aftermarket performance parts can i use on the 91 Civic DX?

I own a 1991 1.5L 4-Cylinder Civic DX. I want to make this car into a racing-type car. What would you suggest I buy for it to make its performance better in the streets?...and somehow i knew some jerk would come up insult a car and go away with a false air of superiority. Shut up. Ok?People with real answers please help out. But if youre going to be rude, then keep walking please.and with real answers i mean an actual answer to my question and not snide little comments about how "japanese cars suck" or "that car sucks". Thanks.

What a waste of time and money. Get a real car not some little toy car if you want a "racing-type" car.

you have a thousand options. list your goals and budget first.tight budget? convert it to multipoint with the Si intake mani, injectors, resistor box, throttle body, and ecu. an Si tranny would help alot.or put on a z6 head for a mini-me vtec.swap in a b16 or gsr.

this questions opens up alot of opertunities. you can do anything to a honda. intake manifold, exhaust system, cold air intake, short ram intake, cams, cam gears, you can get a vtec head for it, it all depends on how much you want to spend and how fast you want to go i had my crx dropping low 10s after the engine swap and tuning it. cost about 11g in total includeing the car. had my coupe running 13s with just the engine swap. didnt do much to the dx (hatchback) just intake and exhaust before i sold it and havent worked on the cavi yet. but i mean your options are endless with a honda especially a 5th gen like yours or a 6th gen (96-00) models i would start off with cold air intake, headers and an exhaust so that it breaths better. then an msd ignition system,
