Well thats no fun. If you are just going to pay for something fast and not do the work yourself then you would just be better off buying a mustang or something.

There is MORE than enough information on the internet to do any small upgrades to your car. As for tools, go buy a ratchet set and some floor jacks! Or, if you can't afford that... it's usually like 5-10 bucks to rent a garage for an hour, just take a look around. You'll be ALOT happier if you do the work yourself, really makes you appreciate your ride, that's what makes owning a civic so fun

make sure your car is well balanced all around ie. dont just dump money in the motor do weight and suspension. most importantly get it to breathe better. ( Im a student at wyotech, an automotive tech school)
