you can adjust the flow rateing on the carb or just buy a bigger one, then just an induction kit and youll have a nippy litlle thing.

Advance the dizzy(£free), and give the head a good skim (30thou ish and about £30), some verniers to adjust the cam(£less than 80 probably), dial in a little overlap and coupled with your new exhaust should have a little noisy beast.

Try bike carbs but that means fabricating a manifold but they have 4 chokes for the 4 pistons with little or no corners for the air and fuel to get through. They are newer than your civic ones, readily available on eBay bike breakers, and jets can be found easily too as it will need a rejet.
My brother (the build is on CRX-UK) has just done it, along with many other mods 1300 to 1600 (D16a8) , suspension and brakes and has a right little screamer of a 3g Civic.

If you advance the timing it will cause detonation , basic older engines dont have knock sensors he will destroy it ,
leave it alone get an engine conversion or a different car when you have passed your test and have been driving a while , that sounds like a plan.

smaller engine cars just werent ever meant for big power...soz If you change the engine the rest of the car will need changing...gearbox, brakes, suspension, ecu. Might aswell grab another car with the money your gona spend on a conversion. Is you insurance cheap btw im 18 n if I try to insure anything even slightly powerful my insurance makes me pay for my wheels all over again :eek:

Edit:

You could always go lightweight power to weight ratio though. I just feel safer when I know the cars main purpose out the factory was with speed in mind. that way the car will handle the mods better.
