Default How to increase hp and tq?

I have already gotten a intake and eaxuasht headers and cat stright pipe 2.5 inch all the way back and got new tires wheels spark plugs, I would pefer not to go forced induction as it is my daily driver. What are some mods I can do for good power gains and what is the cost and drawbacks.

Forced induction is a lot better then all motor(high compression). All motor cars need to be rebuild every year. Heres why all motor cars have that power at any given time, so if you daily drive/track it, you will be pushing it on a stock block. Now with a turbo, it only kicks in generally from 3,500-4k rpms, hence why turbo cars can still get decent MPGs. Cause your not driving in boost 24/7 like an all motor car that is always using all its power. Besides what you have done, only making your car high compression or forced induction is the only way for more power. A decent turbo kit will cost 4-6 grand alone(don't buy a ebay kit) then you need low comp rods/pistons. Hondata, bigger injectors, a 255lph fuel pump, etc. Cars are an expensive hobby.

I'd trade it in for a faster car. Not worth it
