would getting better fuel injectors, fuel rail, spark plugs, wires and other stuff increase performance, or is this for a car with a turbo that needs more fuel

turbo or hardcore na, nothing you really need for just the common mods, I/H/E

Yeah, just for heavy engine mods or FI. Hondas have a pretty damn good stock ignition system and theres no need to run more fuel unless your running a really good amount of boost, really high compression, ect.

But stickers add mad HP!!

IF you upgrade your fuel pump and fuel rail, would that mean your engine will burn more fuel and your tank will empty faster?

u can get a higher capacity pump and rail
but all u will be doing is sending the same amount of fuel.

with an adjustable fuel pressure regulator, you can adjust the amount of fuel being injected, however, without more air (turbo, nitrous, high lift/long duration cams), the fuel won't fully combust and yes, you'll basically be wasting gas. Obviously, power is made by mixing gas and air and blowing it up. more power = crappier fuel economy.

With an aftermarket fuel rail like the AEM it is easier to install a wet nirtous system.
