Hello and welcome mate! What exactly is it you want to do? I also know of Redish Motorsport down there. They mostly do track cars|BMWs but I'm sure they could sort you out with fitting stuff.

The induction kits of Honda's are generally quite good, but if you want to do it just for the learning curve then make sure you use both a heat shield and a cold air feed. The heatshield will prevent 'heatsoak'. This is where warm air is sucked in causing power loss. The cold air feed will make sure the engine gets plenty of oxygen and increase power.

Exhaust wise you can spend lots of money. I had a Greddy system on my Civic and it gave a nice 'Jap' sound, looked good and was made well. What you get will depend on budget. The Greddy I got sold for £600 brand new.
