Default Working on a 97 Civic

Hi guys,

Im new here and am currently working on a 97 Civic 1.5 LSi Vtec im mainly interested in doing the engine on it as i have already finished the sound system and any interia stuff i want to do.

I have already added an air intake and was wondering what other things i can do on a reativly small budget. Ofc if i had the money a turbo would be an obvious choice but simply cant afford it so anything i could do to squeese a bit more HP from the car.

Edit: Im running it on LPG if that helps at all

P.S. i dont want an ebay chip

Intake/header/exhaust if your on a budget. You already have an intake so thats covered. Id get a megan racing header as they are a great price and great quality. As for exhaust i also like megan catbacks cuz once again good price and good quality and from the ones that ive heard they have a nice tone.

If you would run nitrous you need to be very careful and do check ups often.
