Firstly, you have to tell me, what motor do you have now is it a SOHC or a DOHC, If its a SOHC it will be 87 BHP and replacing the head with a DOHC will mean a instant jump to 107 BHP in the naturally aspirated form, you can then add a filter, plugs and Free flow which will take the over all gain to 115 BHP. If you need to go further, then go for a turbo with 7-8 PSI boost this will take the over all output to 130-135 BHP range.

If you want more then go for a 1.6 Mivec plant which is bolt on. A MIVEC puts 170 BHP in the stock form. get a Turbo and you could go above 250BHP.

If you still power hungry get a 400 BHP eclipse twin turbo. With all these you need better breaks, If you select the first option then you can slowly evolve your ride.
