    A popular and solid build would be:

    Aftermarket 12.5:1 pistons and rods (or higher compression).
    VTEC Bseries head with port work/valves/springs/retainers
    VTEC conversion kit for the non-VTEC bottom end
    Aftermarket intake manifold to compliment head work
    Decent sized throttle body matched to intake manifold
    Header to compliment head work
    Camshafts to compliment head work and pistons (valve to piston clearance, rpm desired range for powerband, other things I don't understand yet, etc).
    Big injectors (1000cc+)
    Fuel pump
    Some sort of fuel line modification that can vary
    Fuel pressure regulator
    ECU prepped for tuning.
    Ethanol fuel for moderate hp gains (over pump 93)
    Something more nasty like VP M5 for bigger gains but it's kinda volitile

    Other stuff I'm forgetting

    Get a tune from your best option in your relative local area

    Companies? Brands? I have my preferences.

    4k to drop ? spend 1500 on a basic quality parts turbo kit on like 8-10 psi and make 350whp and call it a day and be reliable and spend the rest on jdm tyte dood mods and wheels and coilovers and buy a front lip and ITR spoiler and a dope cf hood and still have cash to spend

    If you are not doing motor work....don't get a aftermarket intake mainfold. Its a waste.

    Intake piping and filter? Yes.

    Header is a good choice.

    Exhaust is a good choice.

    That's only about $800-1500 roughly.

    Staying non-VTEC?

    I do not think turbo of any kind is maintenance free nor found in the realm of "reliable"

    Just my opinion.

    I had a B20z2 with a true cold air intake, 4-2-1 headers and 2.25" exhaust in a '98 RS half gutted and it was a lot of fun for being a super budget build.

    IMO a turbo setup done properly with quality parts is super reliable and pretty fairly maintenance free esp on anything under 10 psi

    Put a header, intake piping with filter, and 2.5" full exhaust. Decent coil overs and camber kits. It'll be a fun car to drive.

    Oh yeah, because power is measured in pressure!
    I would take the money you'd put into a nitrous setup and go forced induction. You'll empty bottles faster than you think.

    If your swap is healthy just stay non vtec, you have a large assortment of good cams for non vtec

    CP or JE pistons with Eagle rods are both solid combinations.

    id do stock bottom end on low boost and a small turbo (more torque faster and peaks at low rpm) for all out budget, aftermarket pistons and rods etc are nice but then you get into block notching etc , you can literally throw a small turbo on it on stock long block assembly with injectors and a tune and a fuel pump and make 300+ reliable
