Aspiration is a good place to start. Get a good, high volume after market air filter. There are plenty that claim to be beneficial, but usually they are just junk. The same thing is true with exhaust, tuned headers will give a little boost, but they don't do much unless you have a low backpressure exhaust system, so get oversized pipes and a low backpressure mufler. There isn't much that you can do beyond that to get more horsepower until you go inside the engine. A good place to start is kicking up the compression with high compression pistons. Don't go too high though because you'll need special fuel if you go much more than 1 point over your existing compression ratio. Next, look at a mild cam, maybe an RV cam. After that, if you bore/stroke the engine to get more displacement, you'll need to start messing with the computer. That can get very expensive and annoying. Turbo's, nitrous injection and other extreme modifications get to be difficult to control without major mods to the computer. Good luck and don't run into anything.
