New pistons, rods, and sleeves for the block. You can even bore it out if you would like almost to 2.0 liters. The compression of the pistons will depend on what you plan on doing, are you going N/A or turbo? If going N/A i would recommend getting the PFC and slightly higher compression pistons. If going turbo you would want lower compression pistons. As for the head, you can do valves, springs, retainers, cams, port and polish.

I'd probably say the only other thing is to beef up the crank, and i think there is a place that makes cams for the gt. monkeywrenchracing.com sells all you would need, but your gonna be spending about 2000 to 2500 on parts alone, not to mention the cost of what people charge to put that in, always good to have friends though. just giving you an example but my friend with a turbo integra just brought all new internals and the cheapest i can do it for him is about a grand, that includes a three way valve job and putting in the sleeves, but don't expect your car back for a while after it hits the shop, and just giving you a heads up on pricing before you start wondering. my other friend also screwed the walls in his cylinders and a just a short block replacement and install would have cost about 3 grand at a shop, the block only would cost about a grand at most, so to take out and reinstall just the low end they wanted that much, so its a very expensive but well worth it thing to do.
