if you want to run nitro methane then this very specialized fuel only found in drag racing circles

it will increase the power of any engine but its basically liquid TNT with 50 times the calorific value of petrol

however its is extremely dangerous stuff in its neat form and difficult to get outside of a race track

usually its diluted with regular petrol so you run 10% nitro - you also need to change ignition timing and fuel mixture when on nitro and this is not easy as you'll need an adjustable engine control unit

I'd say a more conventional method might be better

so a more free-flowing exhaust, smaller supercharger pulley to increase boost and an free flow air filter and then a re-map to make it all work together

should give another 30-40bhp

this blog post goes into good detail about tuning this engine and its all sensible stuff
