Post how to get more POWER for cheep?

I want to have a bit more power in my sami, it has a 2" suspention lift and 31" tires on 15X8" rims, what would i do to gain power, would a stock exhost give more power than the duel 2" exhost that was on it when i bought it a couple of weeks ago??? any type of spark plugs??? or just new ones?
i don't want to spend too much money into it by getting a 1.6L or anything like that.
thanks for your help,

Here's a simple and cheap intake tube.......

$3 PVC T-fitting,the stock intake boots,and a K&N tube filter. It picks up the power a little and makes the cool intake sucking sound when you stand on it

assuming that the engine is basically pooched already... low compression n'all it sounds like it's time for a TURBO on that thing!...... weld up a simple log-style header and get a turbo off of a chevy sprint and you're off to the races..... literally <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Stop wasting your $ on the engine - save up & get yourself some gears.

Assuming that your engine is tuned and all your equipment is in good repair here are a couple of cheap ideas. An ACCEL coil. It will give you a cleaner spark the the factory coil. K&N air filter it will work well with the 2 in pipe you have on your engine. Also check out IZOOK.com for info on how the mod yuor factory carb for a smoother run. Good luck and fun running. <IMG SRC="smilies/shy.gif" border="0">

Hi Mud Magnet;

What is the make of the 2" dual exhaust for your 1.3?? I've been trying to locate a dual exhaust for my 1.3 Sammi... but was told that such an animal did NOT exist!!
