What do you suggest for more power for me?

Okay, i'm thinking of H22 swap but before i make swift decisions... i'm wondering if there's any more way of squeezing power out of my B18A

it pulls well, i was going to turbo it but i decided to turbo my other civic where it originally came off of and just sell it.

Anyways, so far it's got(for power anyways) I bought the car as it sits and i don't even know what to get yet because i dont know if i'd be downgrading/upgrading.

B18A swap,
DC 4-2-1 headers,
2 1/4" highflow custom exhaust(hate the sound of it though, can't even talk on phone on the highway)
K&N CAI
AEM underpulley,
Cams...(receipt looks like.. it says crower but not 100% sure, the guy paid 900bux for'em i guess installation too)
A mechanic said it sounds like it's chipped.... just a passerby mechanic....
It's got Mitsubishi ECU for some reason...

I want to build a car at least, capable of 13 seconds. I've never dynoed/tracked this car though... anyone know where i can dyno??

anyways... the real question here is...
what should i do next?

You can swap out the transmission and do an ls-vtec conversion. With the right tires, reaction time and a maybe a small weight reduction its possible to get into the high 13s.

oh yeah, about that... what is LS-vtec? i mean i hear it a lot
but i don't really know what it is... i heard it's like b18 with b16 head?
but i'm stuck right here... wondering if that'd be an upgrade because of vtec or downgrade since i'm losing my cams...

you know?
