I'd suggest swapping the engine first...but if you don't want to, depends on your budget...how about a new exhaust?

Engine swap. The CX has 106 horsepower and 103 torque, and thats not a good engine to start with at all IMO. I would do a B16a or B18 swap before you start anything, because if you get an intake, headers, port and polish.etc.etc. it might not fit for the next engine you get (intake, headers...not port and polish that will just be winded money). My suggestion. Save the bucks now, and get that swap first, and that alone will give you a good base to start from.

Save for the swap, but in the meantime if you HAVE to do mods, work on the suspension and wheels/tires. DON'T waste money on the D series.

Waste of money, B18B2 = better sdtarting point and for a HELLUVA lot cheaper.

Bad idea, unless you have endless cash flow and are willing to be without a vehicle for a long time. Swapping in the newer K series motors isn't at all easy to the older Civics...
