Default How to make engine Clean and more power

Hey i have a 89 honda civic hb, 1.5liter. I wanna keep it stock and i dont have alot of cash to spend. My car is Red. If you go on www.412crew.com, click on the trucks, then click on project thats my car. Right now it looks different but same color. Im in the middle of painting my valve cover. Now is there anything else i can do to make it look kooler underneeth the hood. And anything i can do to the stock engine to have some extra hp under my foot? I have a full catbac already by the way.

advance the timing to 18* BTDC and run premium gas. it made a world of difference in my d15 dx motor. and my gas mileage went up drastically, it was actually cheaper to run the premium than the cheapo 87.
