Unfortunately, this chassis is not as easy to work with compared to earlier models.

You can K20 swap it. EM2/ES1 01-05 Civic

You can turbo it. People have had mixed results.

You can make this car look pretty nice, but don't expect any power gains from header/exhaust/intake. It is a 1.7L single cam economy engine. It isn't designed for speed.

Lower it, tint the rear windows.
