All mods besides the supercharger are going to yield very little real HP gains. You can spend thousands on the other mods and be lucky to squeeze out and extra 20HP. Look at most of them as more of a sound and appearance upgrade.

ESS makes an excellent supercharger, can't go wrong.

Do you have the sport package?? If not, then I'd check out upgrading your suspension. Lowering it down and tighten it all up. You'll notice that upgrade right away.

So if you got the cash do the ESS supercharger, exhaust, and suspension(if you don't have the sport package). If you do the work yourself should cost you between 8Kish to 9Kish depending on what you pick out.
