Serious Acceleration

Hello guys, still pretty new to the forum and the focus!

Looking to find out what mods I could do to get some serious acceleration I still have the stock engine 2.0 zetec and I'm looking to get a list of things I should do to it I was thinking about a svt header swap and then found out a few people were nudging to just do an engine swap with the SVT. I do have a CAI though

What would be the best bang for my buck as well as what could I look to do in the future if I plan on going Forced Induction so my engine doesn't blow up immediately Engine has 71,xxx miles on it.
