The two mods you have give the most bang for buck after that you can do exhaust. Overall the most bang for buck is a supercharger.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but putting a supercharger or a turbocharger on it can blow the engine. Engines have to be made stronger in order to withstand the forces of a turbo. My mechanic buddies say unless the car has low enough miles, don't risk putting in a turbo. Please correct me if I'm wrong though. This is just what I've heard.

You're correct. Usually you will probably have to have the engine rebuilt if it has high mileage before you add the TC or SC. It can destroy an engine very quickly if things aren't secure or working perfectly. I would only think about that if my engine had <30,000 or I rebuilt it. Not worth the risk.
