Deleting the cat does nothing for power. All it does is make your car illegal, noisy, and smelly. I suggest you put it back.
I honestly can't understand a word you said beyond that. You might want to get the punctuation keys on your keyboard and/or phone looked at. I think they're broken. If we can't understand you, we can't help you.

The "sticky" threads at the top of this section will give you a number of good ideas.

in short, you can get an H23A1 intake manifold, reground camshaft from Delta, a better header (sadly, there aren't many options available that will do much for power unless you replace the collector with a larger one...), get a new exhaust (2.25" is best for a mild street build), and get some sort of tunable engine management system that can be tuned by a professional (unless you want to buy all the tools and do all the learning to do it yourself.)
In the end, you'll probably end up putting down about H22 power, if you're lucky. You'll likely end up spending H22 money, too. If you just save up for an H22, buy a good one, install it yourself... you'll be starting at that power level, and you'll be able to do similar upgrades to bring it up from there. Your call, though.

If you can't pay, you can't play. Simple as that. Save up for something nice, man. Make sure the car is safe and reliable in the meantime.

Gentlemen, Gentlemen, we're forgetting the biggest, cheapest thing we all can do for extra performance...

Weight reduction

Strip the interior and get rid of those back seats. Who needs a spare? Are you really listening to music on that old radio? Does the AC even work? C'mon. It's all free to do, if you do it right

My friend was able to get within a second of my h22 with his f22a1 thanks to weight reduction!
One of the heaviest things to remove is the complete AC system. That's close to 100lbs I've been told.

100lbs?? Can't be.

I have a compressor, condenser and dryer lying around...I could just weigh them.

OP, the best way to make your car faster is to learn how to drive the piss out of it. Seriously, more hp won't make you a faster driver.

unless you are drag racing, then power means just as much as skill if not more.

And power doesn't always equal fun. My 117hp Fit was arguably more fun to drive than my 400hp cts-v.

How many miles on the engine? My A6 auto with 180k on it feels pretty fast and my last DD had more 75 more horses and two more cylinders than the Honda. I have a sunroof too so its the heaviest optioned Accord for sure and it feels "fast" still.

Check the compression and the condition of the ignition system. With only 140hp these cars have nuts, you having a manual it should be more apparent than my auto.

Is your clutch shot? Mushy pedal?

A simple tune up is cheap and will likely net you a good few horsepower if you haven't done that yet. It will also set you up for more reliable power. It's hard to be fast when you're on the side of the road.

take off the power steering belt and a/c delete (new belt needed) 4-2-1 header, something like a 10k resistor in series of the iat sensor..the p/s pump belt removal and balance shaft belt delete frees up a lot.

How bad will the motor shake with that eliminated, given good motor mounts?

Not enough to notice.
I've felt worse shaking from a bad motor mount than a balance shaft delete/belt removal.

While the Bismoto cam used to be good. There are a few members that have gotten F22A6 OEM cams back instead of an actual regrind. All the time while paying for a regrind to get a stock cam. None of them were able to get refunds. So you'd be better off with Web Camshafts or a Delta regrind.

Removing parts makes the car a lot more fatiguing to drive. Bad idea.

OP get an H23 intake plenum and throttle body. That will give you a decent bit of peak HP and a shitload more at the fuel cutoff.

If your'e going to delete the balance shafts, get the BSE kit from Kaizenspeed or another performance company. If you just take the belt off, you will only "delete" or eliminate half of the balance shaft system and will have twice the vibration. Engine has to come out of the car to perform the balance shaft delete properly because the front balance shaft is driven off of the oil pump gear, ot must be removed and a stub shaft be installed in its place to maintain oil pump operation. Even then, the second order vibration that the balance shafts are there to correct, WILL slowly cause harm. Premature wear of the transmission (and clutch assembly on manuals) as well as premature failure of engine and trans mounts.
