You want to spend 15 thousand on modifying a 2000 civic man?Dude you can buy a 2003 Audi convertible THE WHOLE CAR for like 15000 and try modifying THAT. I got my audi for 19,000 and it was only 3 years old.....OMG dont waste that precious dough Itl make me cry.

The best mods for what? It all depends on what you want to do with the car. Will it be a show car, a drag race car, a road race car, a competition audio car, a daily driver?***UPDATE***Max horsepower for what type of racing? Does it have to be street legal? Pass emissions testing? For California? Do you want to run Race Gas? Are you looking for bolt on mods or can you pull the motor and work on it yourself? Do you need to be able to drive the car while you are modding it?You can get a motor build to your spec for about $7000 complete and outboard engine management will run you another $2000. Figure $2000 for the install and tuning if you can't do it yourself.You'll need to spend the remaining $4000 on getting a new clutch, flywheel and straight cut gear-set to handle all that power.This leaves you no $ for brake and suspension upgrades and a roll cage. That will help keep you from killing yourself with all that new power.***UPDATE***Once you decide what the final result is, figuring out how to get there is pretty simple.You also might want to think long and hard about dumping $15,000 into a $5,000 car. For $15,000 you could buy and completely race prep a Spec Miata car and still have money left for open track time. The same $15,000 would get you into a big block Chevy or Ford drag racing car with a lot more potential than that Civc.

um okay people, he doesn't want to go and spend all that money on a new car. Then he would have nothing left to mod the new car. $15k in an Si can get you a really good amount of power, more than you'll get from most other cars you'll buy for $15k without any money for mods. $15k into an SI is not a bad thing. First thing i would do is talk to a place that specializes in auto performance about going turbo. A really good turbo build will get you into the 400hp range, but it will eat up a large chunk of your budget (if not all or more of it). Turbo builds are really intensive, you'll find that out really fast if you talk to a local performance shop about it. You need a lot of other things to go turbo too, like a good set of rims and high performance tires. You can spend $15k easily on a turbo, since your basically redoing most of the engine parts and even the exhaust system. Once you go turbo though, you probably wont want to go back. Just make sure you keep a good eye on your engine after, turbos require a good chunk of maintenance.

If you want the most horsepower(hp) out of your current engine turbo or supercharger is definitely the way to go. N/a or normal aspiration would get very expensive and with only 1.8liters you can't pull out big hp and torque(tq) numbers. Forced induction, like turbo, supercharger, procharger, force air into your engine effectively increasing the displacement of the engine. Jackson Racing makes a supercharger for your engine i think, if not one could be made to work from an integra since they are b-series as well. There are many turbo kits available for your engine. Your job is to find out what kind of power you want. Bigger turbos mean bigger turbo lag(The crutial time before the turbo spools up and delivers the horsepower aka Psi or boost). You need to find a target E.T. 1/4 mile time to set your goal at it. With $15,000 i think i could get around 600-700 hp easily from a b16.

Best bang for your buck would be a good turbo kit(stay away from ebay) and a good tune to keep your engine running safely

A better idea is to sell your current car and buy a new SI with the 15 k and the money you get from your 2000 SI.
