i/h/reflash is your best bet to stay under $1000, or if you can pickup a used exhaust that works too, although from what I've heard the 06 exhaust is better flowing in design.

That wont help you hit 200whp though lol.

Another tip if you want to go faster: you should always drive downhill.
going downhill with a TSX is like shaving 1000lbs off the car, you will witness how it feels like driving a civic with a k24 motor in it. but then of course, going downhill is breaking the speedlimit, which your name implies dont do it!! haha

do lightweight wheels increase speed?
They increase acceleration, fuel economy and assist in handling due to the fact that there's less rotational mass. They are a worthwhile investment for sure.

those are the reasons why i want some new wheels

i wasn't sure if they were a part of the speed op was lookin for. they'll cost a lot more than his budge of 1k tho =\

If you want to be cheap but still get decent performance, Weapon R is the way to go.

As for the reflash, you should get a 2nd car while you wait for your ECU to get back from Hondata
