Easy solution is boost. Boosting is still a lot of work but will e the biggest gain. Small things like headers, cams, stroker kits and boring also help. Man, a tune up can do wonders too.

Been a while since Ive been to Puyallup. Used to go to the shore of the Sound in Tacoma and compete in a bicycle event called T Town Throwdown. Stayed in hotel in Puyallup a couple times. Nice area. Was super excited about the impromtu car show across the road from my hotel on evening!

Can you be more specific on the year or years of I can use,and also will it bolt right in or am I going to need other parts aside from the motor itself?

Any SOHC VG30 will bolt in with the same tranny. I think the VG33 is pretty close to bolt in too. Differences will be in wiring.
