    Best thing to do is just get a v-tec head and put it on there because with only 500 a month it'll take you forever to get turbo

    werd to the Vtec head,

    pullies will pick up some free power, a

    nd if you have access to a dyno or the like some adjustable cam gears han help out.

    If you just have a muffler then get a full exhaust system, and with the addition of a header you can make some decent gains.

    Your best bet is to buy a car with the kind of pawer that you want from the factory. If this is a representation of your general intelligence, you won't be able to handle building or maintaining a modified car.
