Trade it in. Add the $4000 and get something with a V8.

Hmm, now... you have 4 grand to spend on what ever you want. And you already have an air intake, and an exhaust system.My best advice, you might want to invest in a turbo. It can give you some major horsepower upgrades...and unlike many other aftermarket parts, you'll ACTUALLY feel the difference with a turbo.Spending 4 grand on anything but a turbo for a 06 civic si would pretty much be useless, considering the fact that you already have an air intake and an exhaust system.Good luck!

It really depends on what you want to do with the civic. Is it for track use, a stoplight monster or a show stopper. If it were my civic, I would probably keep it naturally aspirated and upgrade the engine internals. Get some better pistons, rods, springs, cam gears, camshafts and intake manifold. If you have money left over. work on the suspension, I am partial to Tein coilovers myself.

Sell your current civic, buy a clean shell of whatever model you prefer, preferably from 93 and up, higher you go the heavier they get. Invest in a Naturally Aspirated engine, I currently have a b18 type R and I love it.So, sell car, buy shell, swap in b18c5, headers, sways, struts, spherical bearings, 15x8, pair of Recaros, suspension, hollow cat, and keep the body clean. Of course this is just all my preferences, no one on here will truly care what route you go, be it muscle, honda or a bicycle.Cheers

Save time and money go for full turbo upgrade period!. I have full greddy turbo cost 2k for my 98 civic been 2 years now still run strong. 4 grand should get you nice realible turbo. Don't buy cheap ebay turbo go with the big name for that amount.

Get the latest Jackson Racing Supercharger kit that produces more (very close to 300whp with I/H/E) than the Greddy turbo kit, is a lot more easier to install and maintain and 100% reliable. The other turbo kit that can surpass the 300whp mark easily is the one of AllJap but is more expensive, very very hard to install and they are very notorious of their poor support. It comes already tuned from the factory so you don't have to spend xtra cash in a tuner to make your car work like in most turbo kits for the SI 06+. You will have the most flatest/perfect powerband, the crisp response of a n/a car. With a very good driver + tires you should make high 12's enough to make many other owners cry about their slower cars. Make sure to get a good clutch kit because you will need it to handle that extra power. I recommend you the ClutchMasters Stage 3 kit it combines biting power with stock clutch pedal pressure the best of two worlds.Another thing that you can do is getting a good Wet Nitrous Kit + Stage 3 ClutchMasters Clutch kit. And save some money in case you need it in the future for any emergency since the economy in the US isn't looking very good. This is the most intelligent option. Nitrous can be as safe as a stock car if you used properly forget about rumors that it can eat your engine and all that blablabla.
