Re: upgrades!

They make all kinds of parts for it. Cams, intakes, exhaust, Cold Air intakes, valvetrain, etc. What do you want to spend, and do you plan on driving it daily? Performance isn't cheap.

Re: upgrades!

You can always start with the simple bolt ons (intake, header, exhaust etc.) But you won't get much of a gain outside of your butt-dyno. To get any real performance gain you would have to build up the engine, or strap on a small turbo with low PSI if you keep stock internals. You could also do a full motor swap. Many 3rd gen owners swap in an H22 engine (from a 5th gen prelude) - to me, that's the best bang for your buck if you're able to do it yourself.



You could always go the weight reduction method as well :)
