Default tuning steps?

currently. my accord is fairly quick, but has been dwarfed by my fellow racers new cars. so some further tuning is required methinks. bearing in mind im a poor student - this may take a while. also, the engine is a stock SOHC 2.0 injection

so far i stuck on an induction kit, remus exhaust, strut brace, specialist clutch, custom built handbrake and the obvious plugs and wires. ignition timing was advanced slightly as well (and sticky tyres of course)

im thinking, to chip it and put in a lightened flywheel, as well as a full race cam set. suspension will need uprated as well as a rear torsion bar.

but would appreciate any suggestions on better ways, or alternatives to continue the tuning.......
