well it really depends on what motor you have. if you have the base line motor, theres not much you can squeeze out of it.but in general, the cheapest ways are bolt ons such as a cold air intake (AEM), a header (dc sports), and an exhaust. these will probably net you around 10-15 hp.but if you want to get a noticeable gain, you will probably need a motor swap (good prices at or boost your current motor
