Hey Nick! I'll try to answer your questions. First, the 17 degree ignition advance is the cheapest and easiest upgrade you can do to your car. Yes, you have to use 92OCT gas, but then again when you really start to mod the car, you'll have to use 92OCT anyway.
Cams are a good upgrade, though not the cheapest. I recommend 17 degree ignition advance, Place Racing or HotShot Cold Air Intake, HotShot 3rd gen header (or a $tillen if you can't get the HotShot), and 2.25" cat back exhaust with Mandrel bends.
That will be a good start. After you save up some money, you can get JWT cams, and JWT ecu.
Now for more information go to http://www.sr20de.net once there you can join the mailing list.
And on a final note, don't waste your time removing the cat, you won't gain anything.

another good thing is a tune up. get new plugs, cap, rotor, wires, fuel filter, ect. all of that stuff will give you a little better performance, and check the compression, if that is good, I got three letters for you.......NOS :)

You do NOT need 92-3 octane for 17 degrees. That is the upper end of the factory specs which also say to use 87 or higher. I've had mine at 17 degrees for a little over 2 months and use nothing but 87 octane and still do great. I even got 34mpg on a tank last week going 80-85 the whole way.
