I owne a 96 lx, i have the interior and exterior complete, now i wanna move on to under the hood, does anyone know what all i can do to gain more HP? it has a 1.9 automatic trans, but i dont have a very big budget.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

A header from a 1st gen will give you alittle more hp. Its not 100% bolt in there. You have to mod the egr tube some i think thats about it. But any good muffler shop should be able to get that done for you. If your wanting big hp numbers then turob would be the way to go.

Gt there has to be more than that. Not just a header.

Car: one of the first things i would think of was a good cam gears, so you can tweak the shiz out of the numbers finding the best ratio for the car. That will help when u hit the turbo in there to. Google is one of the best places to look for aftermarket parts. I have an 88 Lude and my wife has a 96 escort, im sure it has to be easier to find parts for the escort than for my (pre)lude.

hummm well not really...the Prelude has tons of aftermarket parts...since its a popular car to mod...

and by the way, all the engine mods info are in the engine section..just make a little research...you can add a custom air intake kit on your car, header, full exhaust system, racing catalyst converter, port and polish the head, fuel management, spark plugs, wires, ignition systems, etc etc
but first of all if you want to really have more power i'd suggest an engine swap..the 2.0 SPI engine is a direct replacement engine for your 1,9. You will have to modify some minor things and add a SPI valve controler...but all in all its a good and not so hard swap....you can use the same ecu and same tranny...and you'll get + 22 hp...
then you could think about turboing this engine...i would not recomment turboing the 1,9 since the head is not free flowing enough to get high hp numbers...
