Ok, so first of all you want it to breathe, a good cold air intake system and a larger throttle body or even a spacer, check the exhaust system and if it has dual catalysts then you can dual it all the way out using mufflers of your choice, then add a computer reprogrammer, something like Bully Dog or similar, I don't know if you wanted to go any deeper or not, but there are cams, valves porting and polishing, superchargers and so on.
