They sell nice supercharger kits for that gen. Or just get better intake, header and exhaust. Of course this will void your warranty....

superchargers and turbos are a lot of engine work...but make a big difference. i/h/e are easy but you'll lose the warranty, i'd stick with what you've got for now

can probly get a nice K&N filter, that'll help like 5hp

How much of a budget do you have? Parts for K series engine aren't cheap. I would start out with a nice header, exhaust, and cold air intake. If you do decide to get a header, spend the extra cash and quality one. It will give you alot more power than a cheap one. Those 3 upgrades will cost you roughly 1500 maybe more depending on what brands you get. After that you could get some IPS or KME cams then you wouldreally be making some nice power.
good luck man!
