Only needs about a 75a/h as a MAX I would think. No reason to put anything more in it.

The car looks clean under the skin.

The only way you're going to get performance parts of-the-shelf is if that engine was available in higher tuned spec in a different model.

You'd almost certainly have to get headers made, expnsive - even in America! Exhaust would also have to be custom fab'd but that should be something any speed shop could do.
