it'll make a difference, but not a huge one, especially since you're rocking an auto trans. I say at least consider swapping to a 5-speed; it'll honestly make one of the biggest differences in how fast your car feels.

manual swapping a lx would be an incredible waste of money imo. If you want whp its time to save up for a dohc, or a newcar that has a better motor and tranny than yours.

^+1! Clean up your car and bring it back to stock then sell it and buy yourself an EX, I would even go for an older EX, 92-00 because they have ALOT more potential. If you want a fast and fun to drive car, it's just not gonna happen in that 2002 LX without dumping in loads of cash. Learn to drive stick and get an older civic with vtec, you won't regret it.
