As far as the fuel and ignition systems go there is really nothing you can do to increase the performance aside from advancing the ignition timing. You can put a free flowing exhaust system on the car. That would make the biggest difference. I have never seen any performance camshafts offered for this motor. Oversized pistons would increase the performance but then you are getting into some major engine work.
