well you say it already has an intake and catback exhaust, so id throw on some headers and possibly a high-flow cat and then youd have the complete headers, intake, and exhaust and it'll breathe better, and add some horsepower. nothing really else you can do for cheap as other upgrades such as camshafts, etc. that include swapping internal parts of the engine are quite expensive.

Fuel rails are useless unless you have a built up engine that requires more fuel than your stock system can supply, so i would not recommend spending your money on that (even though they look cool). You have whats called an OBD2 ecu, and to tune it you would need to convert down to OBD1 until you are able to run some programs. It will also end up costing a fair bit, but it will make a nice difference, and there is so much you can customize. I'm not really an expert on ECU programming though, and if your not your going to have to pay someone to program it (which can be costly). If i were you i'd do headers as the next logical upgrade.

most people would agree that a 6spd swap and a more aggressive drop should be next on your to-do-list

I'd say that you should do a tranny cooler upgrade and a fluid change or 3. The Hayden 403 fits your car and is cheap. Then, you should have Level 10 or a similar tranny shop bulletproof your tranny ....... taking from experience. If you want a cheap upgrade that allows you to tune your odb2 ECU without converting to Odb1, you can buy my apexi v-afc2 piggyback computer with a dynotune from my 2000 V6 accord with OBX headers, WS2 exhaust, Injen CAI & UR pulleys. I'm looking for $80 + shipping. Since I installed it, they came out with a plug and play kit, so I'd recommend that. Tapping ECU wires is nerve racking.
