Haha ill second that , but good luck with longevity . Id do an intake and exhaust , short of a turbo kit ( which is NOT cheap ) your not going to pull too much more power out of the car .

Fswerks or turbo tom sell the sct tune device with a custom tune . That runs about 400 but is worth it if your willing to drop the cash on it

Chips suck.
Buy a SCT tuner and be done with it.
