yes - get Ed to tune the engine and transmission. that's about the only thing worth considering.
otherwise if you want to actually make the car faster, it's a waste of time. NA engines don't respond to modifications like FI. read up about the differences if you don't understand why, it's physics driving this not parts/design/people. you'll spend hundreds on intake/exhaust and you won't notice it except worse gas mileage because you're just pushing the gas pedal harder trying to tell if it's faster.
if you just want to tinker and have fun and play with modifications that make a 0.05% difference - then pick what's fun to you - custom intake, custom exhaust, lightweight pulleys, undersized pulleys, get a 5 rib belt, remove your A/C, get lighter weight tires and wheels, vary your gearing with slightly different tire sizes for quicker acceleration, have your heads ported and polished if your headgaskets blow, then weight reduction by removing anything you can, drilling holes in bumper beams to reduce weight, buy a stand alone and program your own ECU, etc.
if you just want the novelty, looks, and to talk about it with friends - do whatever you want that sounds fun to talk about. it won't matter so the beauty is you can do whatever you want and get the same warm fuzzies about it. lol
