You can do the same things on a HX as you could on the EX. The EX has the VTEC though, so that is your only down-fall, but a tiny one.
You can get intakes, headers, exhaust, pulleys, cam gears, fuel rails, AFC Controllers, man, all that stuff and your car will move.
If it says "Civic" on the back, it has potential.

Oh, and another thing to add.....Don't let these guys talk sh*it to you about your car. Yours can be just as fast as theirs.
A well known trick for those little economy cars......after the warranty is up.....hollow out the rear cat and totally get rid of the front cat.
Put some parts on there...I-H-E.....and get the ECU upgraded. That will bypass the emission controls and you will get some serious HP from that.
Then you might want to consider getting some ignition parts on there, and upgrade the fuel system. Your car will run right along side these (our) suped up EXs.

VTEC-E I believe....but is capable of some power man....definitely. Just use your imagination.....
A engine is nothing but a big air pump. The more you put in, the more it will put out like an expensive prom date....
Ha Ha...but anyways whether it be air, fuel, cooling, or electricity.
