cold intake will add maybe 3~5hp...
exhaust system, etc,etc... so many options.. gotta mention costs man, else you could just drop in a turbo and you'll be flying, my friend....
for instantaneous boost without all the fuss... get octane boosters and drop it in your petrol tank... if they recommend 2, drop in 3~4... you'll see what I mean by instantaneous boost... it's very effective if you get the right octane boosters, but if you've got a bit more cash than that, get racing fuel... flourescent green stuff..very expensive, and pikes peak cars use it... apparently, it gives their 500hp engines an additional 100+hp increase.. I doubt we'll be seeing that in streetcars though...
Oh, and your engine will noto handle such high temperatures for very long, so be aware...
