Anyone have much experience with 2nd gen civics? I've got an '83 1500 s model and was wondering if there's much I could do to get a little more umph out of the engine. the (at most) 70hp can be a bit trying at times.

^ Reduce the weight (including unsprung weight). This is SINGLE-HANDEDLY the best thing you can do for the early Civics. Add a degree of timing. Run Royal Purple oil. Do the normal bolt-ons. **** - I'd even gut the back seats if you know they'll never be used. Oh yeah... contact Delta Camshaft and get you a mild (260) performance cam for about $95.00 IIRC. It's a regrind, but hey.

As far as adjusting the timing goes, if I add things like an igniter and a new, higher-voltage coil, would I need to re-adjust the timing again to something different? I've got the manual that tells me the stock settings already.

Hotter spark allows you to add more fuel/air obsiously w/out blowing out spark. But your biggest gains are going to be in reducing the weight - light wheels, litte/no interior --- smaler battery - etc. Just be creative. There are even guys doing carbs if you can tune them (you'd def want the ignition mods and other benefits to maximize your effort).
