There are a couple of things you can do to improve your horsepower.

1. Search this site before asking such a question.
2. Get a new header
3. Get a moddified RS*R exhaust (Only made for Type-S, but can be modified to fit a Base). This is a quiet exhaust, this is why I suggested it since you said that you don't want an exhaust. I am assuming that you don't want a loud exhaust.
4. Get pulleys
5. Get an Injen CAI, or an AEM V2
6. Cam Gears

Unless anyone can think of anything else, there is not much you can do with an automatic transmission car, besides a turbo, but I do not know who makes one for the base auto RSX.

If you want HP, get a Type-S. Personally, I am planning to get a Base Auto because I want a cool daily driver. It all depends on what you want. Make sure you define what you want before spendiing your money.

SRI Intakes

I wouldn't get a SRI because you're only going to suck in Hotter Air which is less dense. :thumbsdow Go with the CAI or Icebox (if the icebox fits an Auto).
Maybe the SRI is okay when you're moving, :driving: but not when you have to sit for a min or 2 .. especially in warm to hot climates.
In the Tech section on here, the SRI has a performance rating of 0 :thumbsdow

First get rid of the Injen SRI, cause the heatsoak kills your car. Cold Air will make a difference on your auto, trust me I use to have one.

Cybernation Stage 1, but your transmission is limited to the power it can receive. I think not more than 250WHP.

AEM SRI r known to be the worst intake you can get for the K-Series motor. Heatsoak will kill you.

So far the only company that I know that backs up their claim with dyno is DC Sports.

With their DC-TCS Exhaust System, DC-Headers and DC CAI they claim 40WHP
