Default need more power, next step?

I own a '91 crx with a LS engine swap. I already have header back exaust and type r cams and an intake. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a good next step to get more power. I don't really want to do the LS/VTEC conversion because i have heard there can be complications when that is done. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.

Turbo or Super Charger would be nice.

You're in the prime position for a turbo.

well, this is slightly off topic, but have you dont anything to the suspension/brakes to handle all this new power?

There is MUCh more to tuning than just going fast. 200+hp is great, but when if you dont have the power down low to stop it, than its really just pointless

forty is right...a good brake kit would be a good idea. but theres not much more you can do cheaper than a turbo except the VTEC swap (it'll run you 300-500 bucks) but the only thing you can really do from there is turbo, bottom end, head work, vtec swap, tune. take your pick.

btw thats a really pretty car
