you could also get headers.

All I can think of right now is an AEM Pulley Kit, grounding wires, and a weight reduc.

1-3 horses, if that. it's pretty minimal.

the main advatage to pulleys is that it decreases engine wear. it adds maybe a horse or two.

ground wires...no one really even knows how the add power. you can get about 1 horse out of them though usually on a dyno.

its worth noting that 1 or 2 horses is within the error range on a typical dyno. so some say that ground wires might produce no power whatsoever (which may be right). but ground wires have added a horse or two VERY consistently when grounded in the correct locations. so it only makes sense that they do add some sort of power..because it shows up over and over again.

ditto..its pretty much THE best bang for the buck (even though you have to keep buying the stuff)

horse per dollar...nitrous far outweighs anything else you can currently buy.

you can also do weight reduction. this won't technically add any power whatsoever to your car..but it will help its performance.

a carbon fiber Hood is the most obvious. and depending on how you like the idea of your seats you may or may not want to remove you back seat and/or your passenger seat. you can also remove your spare tire--but do so only if you plan on buying 'run flat' tires. theres several other things you can do but they get more and more extreme as you add up the little thing (or rather subtract the little things)

Since you do not have an exhaust system, you may want to look into that...Header, cat, muffler.

Maybe look into some suspension parts.

don't forget tires, those are so over looked. good tires can help you get more power to the ground, more power delivery = faster.

and relocate delivery systems, such as liquids and battery to the trunk, more hose, but then you have a more distrubited weight

well, depending on what you want your muffler to do..some can increase backpressure or decrease backpressure. most aftermarket tuners prefer less backpressure from their muffler...provides more top-end power.

here's a very concise essay on spark plug fact & fiction (it's not even a page long--so it won't use up a lot of your time) carcraft.com: spark plug fact & fiction

notice the second image from top on the right side is a picture of denso's iridium spark plugs with the caption:

"Six times harder and eight times stronger than conventional platinum, Densos iridium alloy can handle temperatures in excess of 4,000-degrees F. The strength and heat resistance let Denso shrink the center electrode to only 0.4 mm..."

hope this answers some of your questions thumbsup
