    the only thing that would give you significant power is a s/c.

    pretty much what he said^ you can get a CAI and exhaust but honestly they wont do anything noticeable
    edit: if its lifted you could regear it which would make a big difference

    As everyone else said, there aren't very many power adders for this engine. Other than basic bolt-ons like an exhaust, headers, and a cold air intake, your stuck with this engine unless you want to drop the $5,000 for a supercharger, install, tune, 7th injector, and what not.
