you could start with a tune and headers and work from there not sure exactly what output you will get but you will notice a differnce for sure .. and if you wanna add some sound get some catbacks . But im sure others who more familiar with your model can help you more

While the car can be "chipped" for a different performance curve, perhaps you can see an equal gain in performance by trimming weight from the car and also attending a qualified performance driving class.

Renntech and Kleeman come to mind. There are probably others whose names are escaping me at the moment.

Two grands will not even give you access to pit row. You'll expend the money faster than the car will be able to go.

A car would show appreciation for preventive maintenance by never leaving his owner stranded.

Defensive Driving is never having to say you're sorry: a true love story between man and machine.

Sell it and get an AMG. Otherwise you are better off throwing you money into the fireplace and watching it burn.
