Well, you cant go faster without money. Pretty much, the more money you spend, the faster you will go.
Theres nothing out there for 30 bucks that increases your HP by 100. If that were the case, everyone would be FAST! lol

here are a bunch of cheap mods. most are exterior, but like i said, you want fast, you gotsa haz da caaaash.

Intakes are usually 150-300 dollars and increase HP by 6-8
Cat back exhaust is an option
Trifecta tune is/was about 200 last I checked (awhile ago)

this is a good thread to check out

Weight reduction helps too. Think about the things you can remove from your car to make it lighter.
It wont be significant, but it will be a little. And every little bit helps.

While you wait you could do the airbox mod (free) and ttr transmission bushings ($60) other than that you're gonna have to fork out some cash

If you wanna stay NA I've heard that the 2.4 IM and TB provide the greatest HP to $ ratio, at least when coupled with supporting mods.
