Used turbos have flooded the market. Complete kits are now 6-900$
To get more power you need more fuel. With no turbo, the more fuel you put in the higher the EGT's. That's where turbo's come in, they supply the extra air to burn the extra fuel to keep EGT's down.
If you aren't going to do a turbo just make sure it's breathing as good as possible. I would go with a large single exhaust over dials but that is just me. The biggerthe exhaust the better (less cackle) sound it makes. 3.5" is a good size for a N/A IDI
Once I get out of school my engine is getting some mods. DB4 IP that will push 120-150cc's, better injectors, reveling camshaft, better valve springs, and a much larger turbo.
