Default 94 Civic Lx

I'd like a hp increase for cheap. A.E. under 1 grand. Can someone point me in the right direction?

nitrous oxide system for under $600 will give you temporary boosts in HP. You have to use high-octance fuel or run into knocking issues.

I would recommend improving the suspension or brakes if you can't afford a super-charger or turbo-charger.

I don't want Nos, it causes serious engine probs. You can't get turbos for under 1,000? I was thinking CAI Performance plugs and Wires, and maybe a turbo. I don't really like loud exhaust though.

Do a mini-me swap. Best bang for the buck on an lx

What exactly is a mini-me swap? I've heard of them, but I don't know what they are or what they do.

Save some money then upgrade your car... its better that way. In the mean time if you need to spend cash get an intake, header, exhaust.

NOS doesnt harm your engine if you do it right. no more than a turbo does.

IHE is hella expensive for the small gains. he'd be better off boosting.

mini-me is taking the head off of a VTEC engine and putting it on a non-VTEC block.

Interesting... That would put you about about 20-25 hp more... I'm guessing, since a Lx has like 105 and a V-tec I think has like 127. Would I see much differecne? Is it worth it?
