First get fast with a slow car, build your suspension, then get a fast engine. If you skip the first step, you will forever be slow.

Trust me, a 1.5 SOHC non VTEC with a measly 100 hp is all you need to get started. Honda gearing and I/H/E makes for plenty of potential.

Ha ha unless you got the CX.

Build your suspension as you learn to drive. As you learn, you will know what you need. Build up your car in increments and do a lot of reading about suspension tuning along the way. First thing a Civic needs is chassis stiffening. Front and rear strut braces and maybe a roll bar. Next get a big fat rear sway bar and a tie bar.

Actually, first before anything you should get good pads/rotors and tires. For autoX, good brakes will vastly improve your lap times.

well i dont autoX, and dont talk to me like a noob lol, civics have pretty stiff chassis to begin with, and trust me if i get my motor before suspension im going to be faster, no matter what my suspension is like......
