Default 2000 Civic dohc upgrades

Hey I just bought my first Civic a few days ago and Im looking for some more power. It has the 1.6l dohc vtec engine with 160 hp stock. Im not really looking to do any internal upgrades like cams or pistons, more like bolt-ons. So far the previous owner added headers, intake, exhaust, its been lowered, projecter headlights, rims and tires, short throw shifter. Im going to do a dyno run at my friends house within the next few weeks but i was wondering how i could get the most bang for my buck. ive tryed to google some parts but i dont know where to start or what brands are the best. do you recomend intake spacers or throttle body spacers, different coils, spark plug wires any thing that can add power without going inside the engine. im new to import cars so please specify the best brands, links would also be appreciated. and also what about chips and power programmers i cant find any info on those either.

Nothing else you can do without opening up the motor, or adding boost, or nitrous

Chips are a waste, don't bother. If you save up and buy something to tune the vehicle with, and pay a tuner, I am sure you can gain a little more power.
