well see that would be the purpose of your own research. we have many stickies on the subject. The Internet is a veritable wealth of information and its all at your fingertips. if you cant take the initiative to at least build a foundation of standard knowledge on which we can then build upon, then why would we want to help you. If you want help you must first help yourself.

Read first then come back with any questions. I will be more than willing to help in anyway possible.

check out "Maximum Boost" by corky bell.

PM me if you want a downloadable copy

you can install a liteweight flywheel i have one on my b16a and it climbs rpms real fast.
you can install a cam.
you can instal msd ignition system.
are you looking to do a turbo kit in future?
you can install high compression pistons
you can shave the head and have it ported
you can install a d16y8 head gasket(thinnest stock gasket gives higher compression)
you can put a 50 shot wet nitrious kit on it.

there is alot you can do

this is exactly my point.

there is soooo much that you can do; but, you should set a goal and then work towards it. we can help you along the way but we cant tell you what to do.

yes give us a power goal and price range

but the most (cost) efficient way to make power on a D series is boost

Wish I could help you out more with the other questions, but I never went down that path before so I won't comment
