    it all depends on your plans ie if you are planning on turbo then don't get ctr cams or a header if going N/A then i would get some valve springs/ retainers before i got cams

    in your rearview mirror..wait..
    how much do you have to spend: if you want to go OEM honda:
    bore out and itr pistons
    pnp itr intake manifold
    ctr cams/valve springs/retainers
    itr HEADER (not headers, you only have one head)

    that's pretty expensive..how much are you willing to spend?

    if you ware goign to buy cams, i would go with the skunk2 but you are also going to have to buy vavles and springs + retainters with that. (THIS is only if you want to go na.) As for intake, get an AEM Cold Air intake and an aem Bypass valve.

    1200, you gotta start somewhere- no better place than I/H/E
    anything else you do afterwards, will give a much larger gain if your car can breathe better
