Those "electric" supercharger kits are a complete crock.

Deity, the parts bpearl2010 listed are the best you can do. I would advise against a turbo/supercharger setup because the auto tranny can only handle up to 250whp and it's already problematic for stock v6's (200whp). Even If you do boost, you're still losing a lot of power thru the auto trans.

If I were you, I would just get bolt-ons and those alone should be satisfying. Then I would lower the car and throw on some 19x10's or wider and call it a day.
You should just make your car look nice and buy a fast one later. I was in your situation 4 years ago. I had the exact same car except it was a 2007 and I was not allowed to sell mine despite that I was paying for it. Well, being 21 now, I had saved up almost $3,000 in a few months of worked and took the bite. I went to the dealership and traded in. Just enjoy what you have now and buy what you want later. Best of luck to you.
I think i'm going to take your advice and just go for aesthetics, then sell it off in 3-4 years and buy something a little more customizable. The costs involves are a little more then i'd like to spend. Other then the exhaust, and SRI, I think i'm just going to leave it. I don't want to look for more problems by tuning it too much and creating potential problems that will drain my wallet.

Thanks for all your imput everyone! Really appreciate all your help!

You should still get the parts bpearl2010 listed. The k24 engine responds well to modifications. Get the HFP kit, lower your car and get some wide wheels for an aggressive stance. You will be happy when it's all done right. I wouldn't sell your car later on to be honest. It's a honda and it will last and it's a great car to ride in long enough til you decide to buy a car of your choice.

For what it would cost to properly setup a turbo on the Accord you could buy a sport bike that would destroy the turbo'd Accord on the straights and in the twisties.

I wish I could get a bike, Soon as I move out. lol.

2- UR Pulley kit
3-P2R- Throttle Body spacer "i believe"
4-P2R- Ported Intake Runners.
6-Sprint Booster"doesn't add HP but increase throttle response"
Sorry for another stupid question, but what exactly do the above do, how do they effect my performance. How do they work?

I'm glad you decided against the turbo/surpercharger thing - very expensive, voids all semblance of a warranty, and would destroy your automatic tranny.

Just start small and make your way through some of the mods people have done on this site. Some of my favorites include the exhaust, intake, hfp lip kit, rims, etc.

The nitrous thing would get a somewhat interesting option. Its not as expensive (maybe 200-300 for the install) and if you get a good one the boost can be set to work if you push the throttle past 4000 rpm or whatever automatically.

Just understand something - every time you make a modification to your car it very rarely works without some flaws. For example, when I replaced my stereo in my last car, the amp was always acting up, the door panels never fit the same way as before, etc. etc.

Good luck.

Haha thanks, not really interested in the Nitrous, I'm not really into racing, just want to sound a bit better and have a little extra natural power. And yeah, that's why i'd like to keep my mods to a minimum, no turbo/SC, nothing ever works without some problems. I'd like to keep my expenses to a minimum. But would like an exhaust/intake.

The UR pulley kit frees weight from the pulleys which will make your RPMs go up faster. It'll make your acceleration smoother as well.

The ported intake runners allow more air thru the engine. It will work even better with the cai/Sri.

The throttlebody spacer doesn't really do anything but when paired with a cai it will make it louder.
