turbo's, cams, lite weight flywheel and under drive pulley's, upgrade fuel injectors, bigger throttle body, ecu chipped and tuned, pistons, block work
(bore out the cylinders), head work( shave it, port/polish)
upgrade spark(msd), if you have a nonvtec engine putting a vtec head on it,
theres alot of different things you can do.

o well you have the 1.7, hmmm well there isnt much for mods for your car, you can probably just upgrade cams and a few other bolt on stuff if you can find them,
your cars engine is kind of an odd ball, the only real swap they hae for your car is the k20 engine and thats alot of money.
