If your not worried about the cost, buy an actual performance car if you want performance. Or you could frankenstein a 2.4clyinder with a ITR (rsx-r) head and ECU and tune.

Honestly, you didn't buy the best car for the best performance.. but anyways,

1- Get a swap, there's not that much swaps you can do with your civic, but you could get a descent swap for about around 3000$ or +

2- Get a turbo, but don't forget to get your motor forged!.. you could get that for around 1000$

The best advice I can give you, sell your civic and get a car with more HP to begin with.
