Dude, attach an industrial sized fan in to the air intake right before the throttle body and attach that to pedals that go to the passanger side. Then just bring an in shape friend and tell them to pedal their heart out :P Seriously though, a budget helps. The usual first mods are stuff like a new intake, lowering, weight removal (free), new exhaust.

Intake, header, exhaust. New suspension, weight reduction. those are some of the things people usually start with

Nah, forget the Zex stickers, the NOS stickers are where it's at (Becaus nitrous oxide isn't even called that anymore, it's just NOS... like not other people make nitrous oxide. God I hate FastandtheFurious XD)
