Question-2002 Civic DX- Best initial Mods

Hi,
I just ordered an aem v2 intake.
I am wondering, are there any performance boosting mods that are worth it under $800? By performance boosting, I mean horsepower. I am only moderate at mechanical stuff, so ease of install is also a consideration.

Thank you for your responses! I will give a report on the v2 as soon as it is installed.

save it for turbo. bolt-ons are going to give significant gains.

The funny thing is- The DX civic is the fastest car I have ever owned. At a whopping 117 HP. I might also mention I'm 28 y.o.
