Theres these these things called pullies you slap them on the supercharger and they make it spin faster. However before you do that:

full tuneup, plugs, wires, fuel filter, air filter/custom intake, etc.

It'* safe to drop to a 2.3 or so without KR if the car is running perfect.

Assuming your fuel pressure meets spec and you have no cracks in your exhaust manifolds.

Stock mufflers are plenty sufficient believe it or not, but a high flow cat. could help you out, and would be highly recommended before dropping pully sizes much. Series 1 exhaust manifolds are pretty good actually compared to the Series 2, and they wouldn't need upgrading yet.

Nothing needs to be done to your exhaust. The stock piping is sufficient for a mild to moderately modded engine. Only thing needed to be done to your exhaust is check the Exhaust manifolds for cracks, and weld if needed, replace the cat with a high flow and a muffler isnt recommended since it will take alot to outflow it. Members here only have replaced their muffler for sound.
