    ok, from a base model car, what should be my first steps into turning a street bound civic hatch into a corner carving demon that feels like its on rails?

    For a street setup, I would go with lowering springs, you don't need to spend 1500+ on Tein or JIC's. IMO Eibach Sportline Springs are pretty comfortable, and cost around 200.00, Skunk2 Coilovers aren't much more, tho.
