Unfortunately you're driving an SUV (cross-over vehicle). I can't remember off the top of my head if the CRV engine is used in any other Honda cars, but it's worth looking into. For example, if the CRV engine is used in a 98 Accord, look online for 98 Accord parts and they will match up. What you can do w/o having to part match is a catback exhaust. It will give you a...decent sound (as good of a sound as a 4-cyl) can have, and more of a "custom" touch.

Sound better? not much. For some reason, Hondas just have this awful exhaust note - and it isn't because of the I4 engine, because the BMW M10, an I4 engine, sounds sweet.As far as performance, it won't come cheap. The inexpensive stuff won't get you noticeable power. You should edit and add a price range - that'll really help us figure out what you should look in to.

Turbocharge it, fix iridium sparkplugs, a huge wastegate, ditch the backseats, weld roll bars in the car, drop the suspension, fit titanium exhaust manifolds, cold air filter, add a oil breather tank, nice sounding Blitz BOV, racing ECU and a water cooled intercooler.Or just get a Honda H22A7 engine

any honda will benefit from a better exhaust system.the first gen CRV has the B20 motor, so several of the non-vtec b-series mods may work on it.that gen CR-V is built on the 96-00 civic platform, so some of the suspension bits from that car will work as well.the big mod would be to drop a B-series vtec head and intake manifold on it....but that will require a new computer and some motor work to do properly (CR-VTECs are powerful motors, but they don't like to rev out like the B16s and B18s do)
