Engine swap

Okay I have a 2011 civic sedan LX, I am wanting to do Engine mods.
Air intake, Exhaust, Ecu if needed, gonna swap the Tranny, full Engine swap... ETC>

So if anybody could point me in the right direction as to what parts would be the best to choose from. not really worried about price because i'm really just shopping around right now.

Any info greatly appreciated. Thanks in Advance.

Re: Engine swap

Drive your car and enjoy it. Don't get caught up in this "I'm going to make my civic a supercar one day" hype because you will spend a boatload of money doing it.
