Leave it alone. The crappy little TAAT4 transmissions won't hold up to abuse.

There really isn't a whole lot you can do on the cheap. There was never any aftermarket support for the S cars so your pre built options are quite limited.
People who wanted power went with a T3/T4 turbo based setup. But no kits out there that were affordable.
General wisdom is you can run 7-8 psi of boost with the stock engine
