Mod a 2018 civic lx or buy a 2018 model si

The title basically speaks for itself. I have a base CVT civic that I was thinking about doing some work on since the warranty is ending soon. The idea was to try not to make a stupid decision and drop money for no reason just to end up selling the car…so would it really be worth it to spend money on the parts that the si already has? I would significantly be paying more for the si but the turbocharged engine along with the affordable price for the 2018 model is really luring me in

You will not gain anything by putting SI parts on an LX . I think for the amount of money you would spend why not move up to a new 2020 or even a new hold over 2019 .
