Keep in mind, if you make the kind of changes to your J30 you're suggesting, you will be buying a new transmission every couple of months.

Long story short, you'll be far better off (from a financial and reliability perspective) to sell your car and buy something faster.

Not much you can do with the transmission; it is pretty fragile even with a bone stock J30, and there really aren't any performance parts available for it. If you really want a Gen 6 Accord to build, sell your car and buy a 4-Cylinder version with a 5-Speed transmission.

Better still, sell your car and buy an M3 or a TL-S or something.
