I mean you can do things like software, cams, change the hfm to a 3.5" all the way, change the catalytic converters, put in headers, etc.

m50 manifold, injectors, 3.5" HFM and intake, software for all this and other free flow bolt ons should probably put you at liek 240 rwhp.

NA power is always much more expensive then forced induction in the long run.

Cams, hfm, intake, headers, etc.. add up to the price of a supercharger kit after labor and all that. With much smaller gains.

And those type of cars have a lot of money invested into their valvetrain.

^^ To be sure, I would do 3.5" HFM, 3.5" intake, and m50 intake manifold. Exhaust may give you a few more hp. And get software for all this.
