Default What are some performance mods for a 99 civic ex?

I have a 99 civic eEX. It is a manual of course. Ive already done a few mods to it. Wheels, tires, suspension and cold air intake. Im looking for some other things to do to it though to make it faster without spending alot of money. Motor swap is out of the question unless i can get a cheap B16 motor. Any Ideas?

more power=more money.weight reduction is free...smaller wheels are quicker.a good header and exhaust of course. you can put on a b-series throttle body..anything else is gonna cost money.. boost, swap, itb's, cam, lsd, nitrous ect

"Fast" is a relative term and horsepower isn't cheap.

If you don't want to spend a lot of money, look for parts that will give you reliability. ie: NOS will give you some "instant gratification" but will hurt your motor over time. High HP and reliability don't always go hand-in-hand.

Another thing to think of...if you've gone with larger wheels and low profile tires, it takes more HP to turn the hoops vs stock.

Be realistic with your expectations of your mods and enjoy your ride.

Just my $0.02.
