None of those are making your car faster. And its never cheap. But a tuned ECU would be ideal. I would recommend intake, headers and exhaust if you're going to do that to optimize it.

Flashing the computer with everything stock is wasted money. Those high power spark plug you got are junk. The coil creates the firing voltage so your getting the same voltage no matter what plugs you put in them. Theres not that many cheap things that will make it noticeibly faster. Best bet would to save up and rebuild the motor and do it the right way.

cheap, fast, reliable pick 2 of the 3 you can't have all 3 of them. The f23 engine is a stout engine as are all the f series engines. They have allot of improvement for performance. SOHC vtec is performance pointless it was designed for fuel economy. SOCH vtec is nothing like DOHC vtec like found in b16's b18's h22's. If you want more power out of that engine plan to spend close to $1k and not even hit 200hp. If you want close to 200hp do a h22 swap. But you looking at 2k...not all that cheap. IT PAYS TO PLAY!.

Look into weight reduction. I have a 01 dx accord auto. Stock. I replaced the trunk with fiberglass and have lightweight wheels. I must say that its a noticeable difference. Its gets up to 90 alot quicker now but the fun ends there.
