    Since you are not interested in a super/turbo I'm also guess nitrious is out too. With that in mind how much do you wanna spend and what kind of number do you want to reach?

    obviosly n/a and forced induction have two completely different ways of achieving their power. if you want to build n/a then you will want to raise the compression, sc it... lower the compression. what kind of header do you have?? if it sucks you could replace it

    Cams, adjustable cam gears, and dual valve springs & titanium retainers.

    Well the problem with Nitrious is that you only get that power when you spray so its limited, and you have an upkeep cost of filling the bottle. Since you don't wanna spend a lot I would get a Type-R springs and cam. This will give you a good bump on power.

    It depends what brand you want don't be like me and get a stage 2 cams when you only need stage 1 set your goal and then work for it. Do you want the Type R internals or do you want
    Crower or Import Builders or Crane my suggestion and you obviously don't have to listen to me is see what you want to do research then go with it.
