Not really outside of tuning. You need to flow more fuel in order to spin that wheel faster. Only other thing I can thing of is to unplug the VGT solonoid, but don't expect your turbo to last too terrible long after that.

Flowing more fuel is going to be your safest bet either thru tuning alone or getting a set of 150mm^3 injectors to be able to flow more fuel(just becareful, you can easily peg out a 1600 pyro gauge with that size injector and stock turbo).

unless you get some tuning, no. its not a wastegated turbo were you could buy a boost controller, or an adjustable wastegate and get some more boost out of it.
