You can change the intake if you want, i own a 08 Civic LX. Intake should be fine too change, you can't really change the headers though, they aren't just bolt off and bolt on like other cars. You can change the headers on SI, but i wouldn't bother with the base models. The thing is, the Civic is designed as an economy car, i don't think mine is fast, but its good enough. Once you start tinkering with the engine you usually lose gas mileage though, so i'm not even going to bother. As far as the body, that's really up to you, you can get kits and stuff if you like. I just got window tinting done and i'm gonna change the rims and get some leightweight 17's. That's about all im gonna do though...again its an economy car...performance = SI.

It would have been cheaper to have bought an EX or Si than to try to pump up an LX to the same performance level.
