Intake/Header/Exhaust to get started. Let that thing breath first. Then go from there.

Not too sure what to think about the Pipercross thing. Looks like alot of other shady things out there. Exhaust, Apexi World Sport 2 is a great system, not too raspy and loud. Or you can buy any one of the skunk2, Megan, Greddy catbacks.

Header is the exhaust manifold. DC Sports make great headers.

i know that magnaflow makes great exhaust systems for the v-8s and everything so im thinking about going with that on my 93 civic. it will give it a deeper tone and less annoying
any opinions?
