well thanks for all the advice. right after i bought the car i took it in and got all the belts changed and changed the water pump. also the previous owner put brand new tires on it changed out all the brakes along with the spark plugs. i also tested my abs the other day and it still works wich is pretty cool. a cuple weeks ago i changed the oil and oil filter along with a new air filter. i also got a new thermostat and coolant just waiting on the time to change it out. and i've been getting a lot off ebay such as new shift knob, new boot, fog lights, all new emblems, new grill little things like that. i really want to lower it put some nice handling springs on it but waiting for the money for now. i've also been looking into intake and exhaust systems but dont know alot about that stuff. i was thinking about a chip but i was getting lost on where to find one and what to look for in a good one. but for now i'm inlove with my car and it's faster than any civics around ha.
