No you probably won't be able to convert to SI (even if it's possible) for under 500$.

Nitrous is by far the cheapest way to get the biggest gains. With 500$ , you may just be lucky enough to do some bolt-on's considering your CRX is older.

swap to a si transmission. The change in gear ratio will make it faster.

with 500 bucks you can't do too much but get the basics like cold air in take heaters nkg spark plugs and wires if you can find a cheap aluminum wheels ........ optional, take off ac and relatives parts power steering pump carpet all the plastic int. rear seat all this to loose weight but its optional i did that in my crx 89 si you will be faster loosing arround 400 pounds warranty maybe later on you can get a turbo in craiglist for 300 or 400 dls and get a stage 2 cluth and you have arround 200 or 250 hp a 12 or 13 seconds car depends how do you shift it
