The first thing to do is buy a just joking. Adding HP can be tricky and to do it right requires a lot of money however with that being said you do have options to increase your HP. The three main thing to increase HP is amount of fuel, amount of air intake and of course exhaust. So you could increase the First two but don't increase you exhaust size or get a Cat back exhaust system your HP increase will be small and you will be just wasting money. I would start with an cold air intake and A k&N air filter.

Thanks for the help man! The front of my car is really small where my engine is at. I’ll for surely do a better in take and change exhaust. A tune up sound good for HP? Anything else i can do? From starting to small amounts to the high end. If you can tell me some more expensive high end upgrades. it’ll be freaking awesome man. thanks @jnebeker75
