So I’m new into the civic game. I have a 2013 Honda Civic lx and I’m trying to get some power gains. I have a weapon r intake on it, tsudo catback exhaust coming in and I m going to buy a bigger throttle body and a downpipe for it. Before I get it tuned I want to see how much power I can get out of it without a turbo kit on it. I’ve been struggling to find parts though. Any suggestions/ links to parts that I can do before tuning it?

Maybe 130 wheel. Those cars don't respond to bolt ons at all. Even with a turbo they make slightly more hp than a stock SI. Not to be a dick, but you'd be better off selling this car and buying an si.

I'm going to second this. Sell the LX and get a Si.

You'll find this topic has been discussed numerous times. It's prohibitively expensive to make moderate power gains from that platform. Just not worth the time, effort, and money involved. Of course unless this is a pet project where you can spare no expense, the answer is going to be make the move to the Si.

Like everyone else said, you're going to be hard pressed to make any power. Your best bet is to sell it and buy the Si.
