Well hello your goal is super simple to
Hit. You will need to add two extra parts since your a automatic. As you know the manual will make more power and can upgrade the clutch etc. anywho here is your answers

Not Spending a ton of money is impossible cheap power does not exsist man. When you cut corners bad **** happens period.
If your boosting the car all of the following has to be done just to run the turbo or supercharger effectively

Pick one

Tsi v2 turbo kit
Gato performance turbo kit
Full race turbo kit (might be discontinued)

Kraftwerks supercharger kit
Jackson racing supercharger kit

One of each these parts

Any exhaust long as it’s 2.5 and. Bigger
Megan racing downpipe

Since you have a automatic you need to buy any tranny cooler also a level 10 tq converter

deatschwerks fuel pump 220 or 340
Raceeng custom L19 ARP Headstuds(get them before they stop custom making them)

Hondata tuning software

That’s your basic package. Lots more to do but that will get your started in right direction. Might want to add a Megan radiator and hoses if your running into heating issues btw during tuning.

You will get 189-200 easy with. Those parts with more room to grow by adding more mods like weapon r intake manifold etc. As far as braking is concerned I have a Wilwood BBK kit on mine with slotted/drilled rotors. All steel stop tech brake lines as well

Wilwood calipers kit comes with pads (395)
Stop tech lines 120
Drilled/slotted rotors front and rear 200

Now it stands to be noted Any BBK kit that fits the 06-11 Si will fit the R18 or you can get the Wilwood setup or do the Tsx conversion more work in my opinion when you can just get a kit made for car

I do have alot of spare left over parts as well since i have done a lot of trial and error etc

Weapon r intake manifold (chrome)
PRP throttle body spacer (chrome)
Carbon fiber gauge pod excel style
Carbon fiber Dashboard with double din cutout(yes entire dash is carbon fiber custom made)
R18 Head complete (I could have it built for you as well)
deatschwerks 220 fuel pump
Garrett 2860 ball bearing turbocharger
White line endlinks
Hayden automatic transmission cooler( I had a auto long ago but got a manual later)

Tons of other stuff but there is your answer hope this helps


Also the stock block can’t handle more then 300/300 you will bend a rod period anything under that and your fine just add the custom headstuds as they don’t make headstuds for our cars so have to be custom made get a set now before they are gone. So that guy using eBay stuff probably had a bad tune.
