Engine mods to SVT but still class legal...

I have an '03 FSVT and I want to go rallying. I want to stay legal for the stock class, but I really need a little more oomph out of 1st and 2nd gear. I guess I could put different gears in the tranny, but I am hoping that someone out there knows a tried and true method of engine mods that will increase HP and torque just enough to allow the car to pull through 3500 RPM, yet will allow me to stay 'performance stock class' legal. Wide open question I know, but any assistance will help me narrow down my options and hopefully keep me from wasting time and money.

Which series do you intend to compete?

SCCA

NASA

FIA

All the rules are slightly different.

FYI... I plan to do some autocross and rally in both SCCA and California rally Series.

Thanks,
