Welcome Along!

A very good service, upgraded air filter and exhaust should help to give you a few more oomphs, and if you can afford it, look into the likes of a bluefin remap :)

ECU remap should get you up to 30 bhp more to be honest, a through pipe should be up to 10 or 15...

It depends how much juice you want out of it!
