Default New and not sure where I should ask this.

If a mod could help me that'd be great.
I just got a 2003 accord coupe automatic I4 (k-series K24A4 engine if I'm correct) with only 45k miles with virtually zero rust on the underbody (older lady bought it new and had it in her garage for ages), it runs fantastic but I'm wondering if it's worth putting money into modding it? Thanks!

Given your car is an automatic, probably the best thing you can do for performance would be a set of wheels and tires. Unless you're talking fairly large dollars for a forced induction mod, not much else will deliver any noticeable performance except extra noise.

That's what I figured, was looking at a short ram intake but even that give near zero gains it just looks nicer than the stock intakes haha. Thanks!

It might look nicer to some folks. To "form follows function" folks like myself, short ram (aka. hot air intakes) are pretty worthless functionally (poor filtering and the aforementioned hot air ingestion), and as such, look kind of dumb.
