frist thing would be a good tune up
do the rice pipe mod with a GOOD heatshield
then a 3.4 pulley
high flow cat
Fbody muffler of your choice


that should get you started

Ok..
Pat..he already said he has a pulley on the car.
Scott..it'* spelled Pirelli (in another language that means sticky tires that wear out superfast)

An SSEi, welcome to the supercharged club. Even stock you'd be happy with the power compared to your mouse mobile. (I had an EXP and can say that one). With the pulley already on there it is going to be very nice.

From there most would do the "rice pipe mod" which consists of a cold air intake pipe designed for hondas from Autozone. They have a standard one on the shelf for round $30, then adding a K&N RX-4750 on the end. Insulate it from normal engine heat and you have a nice cold air intake.

Then you probably want to look to the exhaust and make sure the catalyitic is replaced with a free flowing one. (Ebay $60-80) and club standard seems to be a magnaflow or flowmaster muffler for an F-body (f bird).
